About the Designer

As your designer, I will guide you through the process. It is easy, fun, and cost effective. I love creating heirloom jewelry. Bring me your family gemstones, and your ideas for something new, and we will design the perfect piece for you. We use all the tools of the trade, from CAD to hand carved waxes. My designs are locally produced, with a focus on sustainable and transparent production processes. I source only GIA certified diamonds, certified Lab Grown diamonds, and the finest and most unique colored gemstones. I hand create many of the items offered in our studio, and am a master at knotting pearls. I offer professional appraisals for your insurance policies.

I received a Bachelor's of Arts from Metropolitan State College in Denver, and a Master's of Fine Arts from Colorado University at Boulder in Fine Art Photography. I am a multiple professional grants recipient. I was honored to receive my Graduate Gemologist Degree from the Gemological Institute of America, and a proud member of NAJA.

I am the author of the book Women of Jewelry and a writer for several jewelry related publications. My book was featured in InStore Magazine and Rapaport Magazine  

Here is an article in Rapaport Magazine written by Sonia Soltani. on my work, the book and exhibition.
