While perusing her collection you will encounter ancient goddesses, fairy-tale figures, Arthurian legends and animal talismans, made from precious metals, tiny jewels and recycled piano keys. The Mountain View jeweler draws from mythology, folklore and psychology, as well as the art nouveau and arts and crafts movements, with their emphasis on ornate, graceful designs inspired by nature.
