STORY


 

I BELIEVE ART IS UTTERLY IMPORTANT.

IT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT COULD SAVE US.

-MARY OLIVER

 
 
Cascadia Jewelry began in Montana in 2017 and relocated back home with me to the Pacific Northwest in 2019. I never dreamed that this love of mine would become a business.  I feel lucky to spend my time making jewelry and sharing it with you.
I like working with a range of metals and techniques and am always learning. I gravitate towards texture and line to create drama- and always prefer simple and straightforward pieces.  Behind it all is an inspiration to bring joy and beauty through simple, handmade work.  

I have made the effort to create collections and pieces that are more economically approachable.  It is important to me that art and self expression be financially accessible.

In 2021 my husband died unexpectedly. My entire world was blown apart and my journey through grief and trauma changed my life. Making jewelry was a tether that kept me grounded and became a connection to what my future could be.

It's an honor to share all of this with you. Thank you for being here.

Cascadia is a bioregion that spans a portion of the west coast.  It’s the terrain from the Oregon coast through Washington’s mountains, Montana’s rivers and valleys and up to Alaska’s wilderness.  It’s where my roots are, where my journey has taken me, and where I plan to stay.  My business was named for those lands and the feelings they inspire.
