With more than fifteen years experience as a fashion and accessories designer, I gently transitioned to jewelry design after a particularly enchanting visit to one of the many Pacific Northwest forests. Endlessly inspired by the natural world, my focus is on utilizing sustainable materials in unique and unconventional ways. From a sliver of hardwood to a measure of antique textile, each material speaks to me and dictates the manner in which I design. As an artist with a background in anthropology, it is my intention to honor global traditions of craft and innovation. Each of my pieces bears the marks of nature, and of the artist, and is inherently one of a kind. It is this unique quality that sets No Man's Land Artifacts apart from the mass produced jewelry market, and gives each piece a special distinction.
