I have wide range of experiences in the jewelry industry, spanning
the last 34 years. For the past 18 I have run my own Fine Jewelry
store in the vibrant community Of West Hartford Ct. Currently located
in the Blue Back Square Life Styles shopping district. We are known
for our service and innovative solutions to our clients needs. Like
many small independent Jewelers design,gemstones and diamonds are my
passion. I love being able counter sketch a design and seeing it come
to life. I am a avid gardener, cook, reader, drawing on my
experiences and jewelry knowledge to create pieces which are just
right for a client. Though I am not a bench jeweler I pride myself in
being able to communicate with my shops technicians to create our
designs. I am most proud of the 7 design awards my shop has received
from the Connecticut Jewelers Association. I am happily married with
a senior in college.
