Welcome To My Studio!

Welcome To My Studio!

My studio is a sacred space where I create, play, and dream. It’s a place where I can completely be myself. A place where I can explore ideas, make mistakes, and discover my art. It’s a place where I’m free to imagine and anything is possible.


In the sunny Northern California Central Valley – nestled between the evergreen Sierra-Nevada mountains and the bay area’s weathered coastal hills – is where I live with my husband and our three girls, which happen to be two cats and a rabbit who thinks she’s a cat.

All my metal and art creations are handcrafted here in my home studio. I have a small workshop (only about 100 square feet) where I sit at my jewelers bench surrounded by tools. I love working with my hands. There’s something magical about forming raw materials into beautiful works of art.

I discovered metalsmithing during COVID. Like many others (maybe even you), I picked up a fun new passion while social distancing. And it fits perfectly with my love of fashion accessories! I launched VANDA inspired in 2022 excited to share my new creations. Read my full story here.

Fast fashion is out and Earth-friendly fashion is in! Every piece I create is thoughtfully crafted from sustainably sourced materials. I design each item purposefully with attention to detail, creating timeless wearable art that can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Transparency is important when making a big purchase decision, like jewelry. Except for clasps, all my pieces are made with 100% recycled sterling silver. Along with reclaimed stones and pearls, I also source gemstones from environmentally responsible and fair trade suppliers.
