BA/ University of Tennessee, Chattanooga
I have always been attracted to ethnic and tribal jewelry. As a bellydancer, I have continued my fascination and have further explored the adornment of Middle Eastern, Indian, and African tribes. Through this exploration, I began to discover colors and textures that inspired me and started incorporating these styles into my own designs.
I have collected and made jewelry since I was a child. Only recently have I found my style by incorporating collected jewels of my childhood, as well as, rich stone beads with tribal inspirations.
