Making wearable pieces of art is my passion. It’s so inspiring to see people wearing something you have lovingly made with your own hands. I have always loved crafting since I was a little girl and my love for accessories mirrors my love for life… the random, the colourful & the diversity

I try to infuse my work with the colourful spirit in which I live my life. I love all things off beat, handmade and nature friendly…

A big part of  my design process involves bold and flamboyant prints with different textures and colors. Cotton lace, ribbon, beads and yarn are among some of my favourite things with buttons being an obsession. My goal is to create unique designs that will honour and flatter women…

I am ever-learning and evolving through new techniques. My creations have slowly become a way to connect with those far away, to keep them feeling beautiful and to expand love!

P.S I never met a colour I didn’t like…
