Hi! I am a wife to my sweetheart since 2007 and mama to three beautiful children: two boys and a girl! As if our house weren’t full enough, we have two independent cats. Before our oldest came along, I taught middle school science for four years. As much as I loved teaching, I have always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. We were very blessed that I have been able to stay home with our three kiddos so far, and I love the freedom it offers.
Part of me did miss the challenge and creativity that I used daily when I taught science. When the opportunity came along for my husband and I to purchase a laser cutter, we jumped at it, knowing it would give me an outlet to get my creative juices flowing and a challenge to create beautiful and unique pieces … as well as be a source of income to allow me to stay home with our kids for as long as I can.
I make all kinds of custom jewelry for any occasion! The most significant thing I have learned since I started this new venture is how each piece is so special and personal! I am honored and humbled to be a part of each of your lives, to know your stories, and to help give you a piece of jewelry that you can wear for years to come. From my Mama Bear line to miscarriage pieces to remembering a loved one who has passed to celebrating a graduation … each and every piece tells a story. I am so honored to help you design the perfect piece for you!
