About Us

I’m Jackie and have been an artist as long as I can remember.  I have a BFA in art and wear many hats; Artist, Teacher, Antique Dealer and Jewelry Designer.  I find that they are all intertwined.

My jewelry designing came to me in the form of a gift.  After the death of my father, a dear friend designed and made me a prayer strand commemorating my father’s life.  I was so touched, it inspired me to do the same for my mother and sister.  This started me on my journey to designing and making my own unique jewelry.
 
I have had a fascination with middle eastern tribal jewelry which I have collected for years.  I loved the history of the pieces with the dents and dings which signified they were well worn.  It was only a small step to incorporate these wonderful tribal findings coupled with semi-precious stones into my own creations.   I also use antique pins and other antique pieces in my jewelry.  My initial inspiration comes from each finding and then I build  the necklace around it.

Beauty is my inspiration - be it nature, a finely crafted antique piece of jewelry, art or friends
