I create handmade paper art pieces: pop up cards, 3D layered cut paper art, stationary, hand bound picture books, and toys, featuring original digital collage illustrations. To create the imagery, I start with a sketch, scan it, and then build the final illustration from a collage of original photography and digital painting techniques. I print, cut, and assemble all of the final products in my home studio, using archival pigment-based giclee printing and heavyweight matte papers.

Organic shapes found in nature are reduced to simple streamlined structures that encompass space and create the illusion of volume and mass while maintaining a lightweight feel as each piece adorns the body. Sleek clean lines are combined with rough-and-tumbled textures created with building materials such as concrete, steel, and wood. The resulting collection offers a range of one-of-a-kind large scale earrings, necklaces, and rings that are balanced, playful, and unexpected in their lightweight and comfortable-enough-to-wear-all-day nature!

Sweet Punkette started about three years ago when I was getting a lot of requests for some items I had made for my wedding reception. Combining my love of music and recycling, I take un-useable, unplayable vinyl records and create something new! My clocks have been my best seller by far! The clocks made from the 45’s are all one of a kind and made from the actual single, so customers are always so excited to find their favorite song. I just started making (also one-of-a-kind) earrings and necklaces from the records, using parts of the original LP labels, and have been a success! My shop name comes from my nickname given to me by Betsey Johnson. When I worked for her, she would call me her “Sweet Punkette”.

It is my passion to create captivating jewelry that is alluring, versatile, and vibrant with the feelings of pure joy and inspiration – talismans or amulets to wear throughout the day. It is my intent that this will be passed on to the wearer. Why? If you are happy, you will naturally spread it like wild fire to everyone around you. And then they will feel good too! I use captivating, natural gemstones, lustrous sterling and fine silver, gold-filled and copper metals in my designs. Why? Historically precious stones and metals have been used to embue leaders with strength, courage, will and other positive qualities. And in today’s terms, precious metals and gemstones are eco-friendly. They are healthy, naturally beautiful, and feel wonderful against your skin.
