It feels so long ago that I was cruising on my bike with my brother and sister around the Wanamassa School. As a little girl, I quickly learned the value of hard work and dedication. We lived just a stone’s throw from the school and our community was chock full of working class families, including my mom who raised three kids on a teacher’s salary.
 
As kids, we knew it was time to head home when the sun was setting and we could smell dinner being put on the table. Technology has changed our world so much and I’m grateful that I was able to spend my childhood without ties to screens or computers. I spent hours after school in my bedroom making art using pencil, paper and crayons. I’m certain my creativity stemmed from these experiences.
 
When I moved back to New Jersey in 2020, I chose the amazing community of Asbury Park. It’s pretty wild that my new home is less than a mile from the apartment I grew up in. When I was designing Full Circle, it seemed only appropriate to pay homage to my old stomping grounds.
 
Each piece in my new collection is named after streets that remind me of my childhood here on the Jersey Shore. Wanamassa School is on Bendermere Avenue and the simple forms and shapes of the Bendermere earrings remind me of the simplicity of childhood. For a smaller scaled pair of this design, be sure to check out the Grasmeres.
 
Feeling grateful for this journey that has brought me Full Circle,

At 18 years old, there was nothing I wanted more than to leave NJ and see the world. I wanted to move west, travel, and fulfill my creative dreams. I didn’t know where I was headed or how it would [...]
