I've grown to love the diversity of the Kansas prairie. In my jewelry designs, I try to capture those fleeting moments of the grasses and flowers as if they had stories to tell. Sitting in the midst of the tall grasses as the Kansas wind blows through the prairie, I can hear the conversation between the grasses and the wind. They tell stories of how we are all connected to this earth and made for a special purpose by our Creator, God.

I've been creating jewelry since 2008. I scour the prairie each season for new grasses to tell their stories. I carefully handcraft each piece of jewelry from the grasses that I pick so that each piece is unique and as varied as nature itself.
