The jewelry business is in my blood. In 1923, my grandfather immigrated from Germany to Chicago and opened a jewelry store. Thirty years later he returned to his motherland, and his two sons took over the store. When I started high school, my father told me I’d be working in the store after school and on Saturdays. As far as jobs go, this was the best a teenage girl could hope for. I learned a lot about jewelry and colored stones. Because of this experience, I developed a deep appreciation for genuine gemstones and precious metals.
Now I make jewelry purely for the love of creating something beautiful. I go to gem shows and handpick the loveliest beads and cabochons. Everything I make is one of a kind. Sometimes I make two or three of the same design, but because natural stones have variations, they are not identical. I think about the women and men who wear my pieces. No two are the same, each is an individual, everyone has flaws that make them unique. My jewelry is designed to bring out the genuine beauty in each person.
