I have always enjoyed history, arts and crafts and have been making jewelry since I was three. When I was an adolescent, I made jewelry out of my home and sold it to friends, neighbors and family members. Later on, in college, I majored in history with a minor in art history. This is where I took my first jewelry class. Ever since then, I have been making jewelry with a historic flair, and recently opened up my jewelry shop on Etsy Fleur de lys originals. My goal is to make jewelry that is completely period correct and looks like it walked out of a painting. I use natural materials that were available to people of the past, such as pearls, with exact originals and paintings serving as documentation.
