I was born and raised in Lublin, Poland and moved to Maine in 1989. Soon after that I took a jewelry making class where I fell in love with the craft. Later, I continued working and learning jewelry making art at the studio of Patricia Daunis in Portland Maine for next three years. Currently, I own a small studio in Maine, where I make quality handmade jewelry from a variety of different material.  My pieces are made with either sterling silver, 14 K gold or fine silver wire that I hand crochet. I also enjoy incorporating and experimenting with semi-precious stones and other materials such as ribbons, leather and rubber cord. I get my inspiration from flowers and nature. All of my pieces are entirely handmade and one of a kind. I strive to make my jewelry elegant, attractive, and most of all unique. I hope you will enjoy wearing my jewelry as much as I loved to design and make it.
