I make jewelry and really enjoy it. I strive to create timeless pieces which combine the contemporary with inspirations from fantasy, fairytale, celtic folklore and history.

I work in Sterling silver and semi-precious stones

I guess this is the place where I have to tell the world about myself. I am not too good at it, but will give it a try :-)

I am female, and I am obsessed with all things beautiful. I express myself by creating jewelry and wedding gowns. My creations have a unique look, combining the contemporary with elements inspired by fantasy, fairytale, celtic folklore and nature.

For the jewelry I work in precious metals, primarily Sterling, and gemstones.

For the gowns I have a definite preference for corsets and silk.

For those of you who are curious about my work, it can be found on

Current Residence: United States
Favourite genre of music: Operatic rock

A big THANK YOU to the DA community

  • Listening to: Epica
  • Reading: Killing Moon - a werewolfie book
  • Watching: Supernatural
I got so busy after January, I did not login to DA until now.

Meanwhile, I managed to miss my mask being featured on DD and the overwhelming number of nice and encouraging comments it received.

I do not believe that I managed to properly respond to and thank everybody who  contacted me with comments, support and encouragement. Your words touched me on a deepest level, and I do not know how to best express my gratitude. I am truly overwhelmed and cannot find words strong enough to describe what I feel.

So a big THANK YOU to all of you, watching my work and commenting on it. I am honored to be here!

I've been looking for one of your crowns for months. Do you sell them? It would be a gift and my pleasure to wear one in my prom. Please tell me that you do. I really love your work!

englandthegrate  - it is not easy. they are made over the course of many days (sometimes longer), using traditional silversmithing techniques, tools, and equipment.

It doesn't look easy. I wanted to see because I wanted to make one
