Ethereal Collection

Mixed metal Jewelry adorned with sea otter fur inspired by my Aleut heritage and the rugged elegance of the ocean.

Grounded. Present. Inspired


Hand Trimmed Fur

Using my signature technique I hand trim the sea otter fur to give dimension and design to my pieces. Trimming the fur exposes the natural ombre of the sea otter fur and reveals the sea otter velvet.


Ocean Inspired Patina

The vibrate blue-green patina's that you will find in many of my pieces is inspired by the Aleut peoples dependency on the ocean and pair nicely with sea otter fur (an ocean going animal). I mix my own patina solutions to give my pieces a unique look.

Our Aim: To create pieces that are grounding allowing you to be present in your life
