Round brilliant diamonds channel set in sterling silver pendant.

Happy new year, everyone! Sorry for the long hiatus. I’m now back from Christmas break and starting my final semester at TIJT. I completed my Repair Technician certificate last month, and I’ll be graduating in May with an AAS in Jewelry Technology and a certificate in Gemology! By August I’ll also be certified in CAD.

I hope to work with gems or design, but I will be searching for any and all jewelry related jobs in the Austin area starting this August. Almost there!


14KY gold pendant and chain with Akoya pearl and red coral

I took my inspiration from Ise Shima National Park in Mikimoto’s (of Mikimoto Pearls) home region.

I have always been inspired by Japanese culture, history, sociology, philosophy. Been learning about pearls this past week and finding the whole process very interesting.
