"My early passion for travel and discovery of new places and beautiful things is how I work today. I continue to travel and am constantly searching for quality gems and designs.  Each collection is inspired from the previous design.  I am inspired by my travels, nature's elements, symbols & feelings.  Most of my inspiration comes from my collections of stones;  I try to read the stone and see what the stone needs.  The way the stone sits, reflects and illuminates also influences the design"
