About Lapis: Lapis is a semiprecious stone valued for its deep-blue color caused by the presence of the mineral lazurite, which is the source of the pigment ultramarine. Lapis is an ancient stone with history that dates back to ancient Egypt, where it was used as a favorite stone for amulets and ornaments such as scarabs; it was also used by the Assyrians and Babylonians for seals. Lapis jewelry has been found at excavations of the Predynastic Egyptian site Naqada (3300–3100 BC), and powdered lapis was used as eyeshadow by Cleopatra. In Medieval times, lapis was used as pigment for artists’ paint.

My jewelry journey actually began with a terribly impulsive decision. While waiting tables, an extremely rude customer prompted me to spontaneously quit my waitress job. In a moment of pure desperation, I decided to start selling my jewelry. From there, I went on to achieve a degree as a goldsmith, giving me the skills needed to make all the beautiful things floating around in my head. There is nothing in the world I would rather do. I find deep, abiding joy in sharing my work with amazing women, who inspire me with their own crazy, beautiful stories. For me, it’s more than jewelry. It’s a moment. It's a communion with nature. A tie to the past. A connection between you and me. Every day I am grateful for that moment of impulsivity. I am grateful for my journey. Every twist. Every valley. Every mountain top.
