I have been watching, working, and learning about jewelry since the age of 16 when I began my first job with a small jeweler in my hometown of Stephenville, TX. I quickly came to realize my ambitions and curiosities for the industry were far larger than a small town such as Stephenville could offer.
In chasing my dreams, I went on to work for many prestigious retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Haltom’s Jewelers, and served as a full time representative for a high-end designer brand featured at Bergdorf’s in New York City and all over the world. For the past 10 years I have been educating myself by attending the Las Vegas Jewelry show, Couture and the Tuscon Gem Shows, and pursuing GIA education. I currently represent and work exclusively with Paolo Costagli, Doryn Wallach, and Katherine Jetter, to name a few.
I have long been fascinated by what influences not only jewelry design, but how architecture and culture itself influences jewelry and fashion design. I have a HUGE affection for long-standing jewelry houses such as VanCleef and Arpels, Boucheron, Cartier, Verdura, Chanel, Pomellato, David WEBB, Bulgari, and Tiffany. The history and design aesthetic of these fine Haute Couture Jewelry and Fashion Houses is wholly unique and each has its own distinct story to tell. Over the years I’ve attended numerous auctions and visited various auction houses to view the collections they are selling/displaying as an educational exercise so that I may better understand the value of vintage and quality pieces.
My goal is to help find and expose new designers to the world and also raise awareness and appreciation for the “art of jewelry and gemstones.” Additionally, I strive to help buyers who want to find one-of-a-kind vintage pieces and/or design their own stunning pieces using only the highest quality gemstones. I also assure that we use diamonds and metal that are Kimberley Process & U.S. Patriot Act Compliant and Conflict-Free Diamonds.
Long-term, I may create my own line of exclusive jewelry pieces, which may or may not include a brick and mortar storefront. However, no matter what my future brings, I’ll always hold true to my mantra: utilize and repurpose anything vintage that you’re not using to create pieces you will wear and love!
My clientele includes those starting their personal jewelry collection, those wanting to refine their current collection, re-making an estate or inherited piece, and those looking for assistance in purchasing a special gift.
