Jewelry and beads have connected people, cultures and places throughout the ages. In the divisive climate of today, we need to connect more than ever through the common roots we all share.

My designs tell compelling stories of the rich cultural heritage we have in common. Beads and unique materials – lovingly and skillfully handcrafted by artisans around the globe (and sourced through fair trade) – are intertwined to cross paths on “my Silk Road” reminding us of our deep human connections… across borders everywhere, then and now. At the core lies a human bond – far stronger than what we think divides us… the fundamental desire to be seen, appreciated, touched, heard, and loved.
