Occupation Jewelry Designer
Location Pasadena, United States
Introduction Hi! I am jewelry designer and mixed media artist living in Pasadena, CA. I got my artistic start in the miniature field, making and supplying shops with 1:12 dollhouse miniatures. I later branched into other crafty avenues and ended up falling in love with jewelry design after seeing a handmade necklace in a shop window in Paris. Since that day I have been creating original jewelry designs; many with a vintage, Steampunk, or Art Nouveau flare. I am a designer for Beadaholique in Los Angeles, creating their ad pieces, how-to projects, and taping hundreds of instructional videos. I also have my own line, Blue Pig Design House, which features many one-of-a-kind pieces. When not designing I love spending time with my hubby, concept artist Brett Bean, traveling, shopping antique markets, cooking, relaxing on the beach, and enjoying the company of good friends.
Interests I love to travel and design - those are my two passions. Luckily they go hand in hand and I am inspired by the world around me.
