Adornments have been a lifelong passion, and concentrating on Metalsmithing in College enabled me to realize my dream to create in 3 dimensions. I craft my designs in metal, from my drawings and sketches of things that inspire me in my observations of the world I am walking in. It gives me great pleasure to recreate such fleeting, ephemeral creatures as insects in the lasting solidity of metal. I hope to capture some of that magic which will create a pleasurable experience for the wearer as it does the maker.
Each Pin comes tucked in a pouch in our gift box, with our handcrafted card with a bit of firefly lore, as it it close to our hearts, ready for unique gift giving or safe- keeping.
Designed for the nature lover with a sophisticated design sense, we believe these unique treasures will delight and please for many years to come.
