I was always mesmerized by the sight of beautiful jewels, and dreamed of someday being able to create my own.
I was particularly fascinated with the workmanship of Etruscan and Roman jewelry, and the beauty of Oriental jade carvings.
I attended courses and refined my skills on different jewelry techniques from famous artists. However, it was only late in life, after I moved to Mount Tamalpais that my interest became a hobby. Encouraged by friends and family, I finally decided to present my jewelry collection to the public.
