About

I've always loved creating things, and went to college unsure of what to major in. Sure, I love math, but I knew I didn't want to be just a mathematician. So I decided to study Costume Design for Theatre. I learned about material, makeup, sewing, jewelry, and the art of wine drinking.

After graduating, I became a manager at Gap and then J. Crew. I loved it for years. It was fast paced, I was surrounded with sassy co-workers, and I got amazing discounts on clothing. I also learned how to run a business, the art of customer service, and P&L reports.

I began to feel that my time with retail was coming to a close. I wanted to spend time with family, to enjoy holidays, and to not stand on my feet for 9+ hours a day. So I quit.

On a whim, I bought a set of metal stamps, and started stamping everything in sight. My first hundred stamps were awful. I didn't understand spacing, how hard to hit, or what metal to use. I watched hours of videos, read tutorials, and learned that I needed about 80 more supplies if I wanted to actually do this. I started my shop, and kept learning.

I've been doing this for a year now, and I'm happier than ever. Sure, I sometimes have 9 hour workdays, but it's for my product and my customers. I'm lucky to have a supportive mother and boyfriend, who understand when I talk about jewelry for hours.

So take a look at my shop. It's filled with pieces I love and pieces that make me laugh.
