She has combined her degree in Fine Arts with studying art in Florence, Italy to create a Made in America company that distinguishes itself from others with its acute attention to detail, use of quality materials and reasonable pricing. Even her studio that was built in the 1800's reflects the tone and quality of the jewelry she produces
