Artist in the Spotlight

United States


I am inspired by travels and read to experience different cultures, fashion, art and food. I also look at my life experience growing up in California, my Mexican-American culture, my experience as a brain tumor and paralysis overcomer and my former life as a nomadic military spouse. I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing but for over 10 years and while raising my son, I earned my metal smithing and jewelry making skills at the Art League in Virginia, USA. I am a four-time Artistar Jewels Exhibiting Artist and a participant in New York Jewelry Week 2021. My Sunshine Ring advanced to the Final Four of The Battle of The Rings 2020.

Artist's Perspective

I use metals and gemstones to make jewelry that combines classic silhouettes with modern, delicate, thoughtful details. My one-of-a-kind pieces celebrate the joy and power of being a one-of-a-kind individual in a bustling life, in a huge world. I see jewelry creations as wearable art to express personality. It's my goal and deepest hope that the wearers are encouraged to embrace their one-of-a-kind-ness by making my pieces truly their own.
