About no. 27
Whenever I do a show someone inevitably asks me... Why the number 27?
All I can say is that it's always been my number - my birthdate, my house number and my lucky number since I was a kid. Since it is my special number it just seemed fitting I should name my jewelry collection after it.
Like my number, my jewelry is very personal to me. I make each piece myself and all of it is one of a kind. My upcycled vintage jewelry incorporate vintage components like pins, crystals, and pendants with semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, Swarovski crystals, glass, silk and leather. In the metals studio I create rings, pendants, and cuff adornment from sterling silver and brass.
Please browse the photo gallery of my work. Not all of the pieces pictured are still available but check in - I may still have it or can make one just like it.

Thank you for your interest in the no. 27 collection!
