How did you start &c. Jewelry?
I knew as soon as I started making jewelry that I wanted to get it out there, that it was something I wanted to do. I come from an art background so the ultimate goal is to always to be able to hopefully support yourself off of what you make. It seemed natural. 

What inspires your jewelry line?
Some of my influences are Alejandro Jordorowski, mythology, and my grandmother's choctaw. All of these things tie into the history of jewelry making and what it's function is. 

Where can people find your jewelry?
In Seattle I sell at a handful of stores; Cairo, Object, Velouria, Ghost Gallery. Rad Summer in Portland is one of my favs and the newly launched Craft & Culture website is beautiful, so happy to be doing work with them.

What are you looking forward to most in the coming year?
Traveling and slowly phasing into working for myself.

Where would you like to travel?
The Southwest and Texas

Who's someone you admire?
The matriarchs of my family (my mother and my grandmother). They're badass ladies who don't take shit. 

What's currently on your playlist?
YaHoWha13, Marshall Tucker band, and Change in my Pocket by The Georgia Satellites. A lot of southern rock basically. 

What does your dream day off look like?
Rock hounding


  1. It's a wonderful goal to work for yourself. I'm slowly phasing into that too with writing projects.

    Good luck to you!
