I am a jeweler living in San Jose,CA with my 2 daughters. I am just
starting up my business again after taking 5 1/2 years off to raise
my children. My jewelry is all hand-fabricated using techniques such
as granulation, plaiting, and chain making. I love gemstones and use
high quality, colorful stones in most of my pieces. Recently, given
the current economic situation, I am using silver but prefer to work
in 18 and 22K golds.
