Originally from Boise, Idaho I started and finished my degree in Jewelry/ Metals Arts at California College of the Arts in May of 2013. It took 3 years and some soul searching but the love of jewelry making was again found when I decided to take a jewelry making class my junior year. I essentially jumped ship from my graphic design program and into the world of metal. It was probably one of the most rewarding decisions that I have ever made.
