meet the designer

Nancy has had a connection with jewelry since she was a little girl. Rummaging through her mother's jewelry box as or attempting to make her own earrings by hanging a piece of the family's crystal chandelier was as far back as she could recall the beginnings of her curious nature about jewelry.

She received her Bachelors in Business Administration from University of California, Riverside in 2002.  She also attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise, Los Angeles majoring in Fashion Product Development the following year. While she had creative job in fashion at a Fortune 500 company along with working at a boutique interior design firm, there was still something not quite adding up for her. She started by doing what she once knew and loved, jewelry making. After taking a metalsmith class, the passion for jewelry and fine art that was there as a young girl was immediately reignited. 

Precious and semi precious stones are truly what is apparent in Nancy's designs and it all starts with her connection to the stones and serves as an initial inspiration in her pieces.  Nature, architecture, fashion and the divergent cultures from her travels and experiences living abroad are what inspires her pieces to take on a feminine and delicate way. 

Nancy was born in Houston, Texas and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 8. She has lived abroad in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Currently she resides in Orange County with her Bichon Poodle, Mikimoto.
