My line of Renaissance Jewelry was inspired by the portraiture of the great masters of the Renaissance. It is available through my Etsy site. I am happy to customize it to your liking using real or simulated gemstones.

My original jewelry designs sprung from my exploration of the energy of gemstones. I love how the different stones resonate to different areas of the body.
