Meet the Maker
Jewelry, gems and silversmithing have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. When I was young I would spend part of my summers with my grandfather in Montana. He had a small studio set up in his home. I loved watching him light his torch and begin to manipulate metal into beautiful pieces of art. I always knew I wanted to become a silversmith. From the first class I took in basic soldering I was hooked. I wasn’t only influenced by my Grandfather but also my Aunt who is a gemologist and Jewelry Designer.
Burnt Ginger was founded with the idea of creating unique pieces of jewelry that are not only beautiful but also durable. Having lived on the Island of Maui since 2007 I’ve grown into the habit of making sure I have on some sort of jewelry before I leave the house. Whether that be a stack of bangles or a pair of earrings.
I take pride in every single piece that leaves my studio. All my jewelry is handmade by me in my mini studio room. My goal is to create something that I can be proud of and that my clients will love.
