Welcome to Jewel in the Lotus designs.  In my jewelry you will find elements of Victoriana, Steampunk, Eastern Mythology and a love of nature. I combine up-cycled vintage and antique pendants and jewelry components with eclectic beadwork to create unique one of a kind wearable works of art. Feel free to contact me to discuss custom pieces to your specifications.


My collage and assemblage pieces draw influence from world cultures and mythology. The story changes depending on the viewer, but it is my hope to create a world of wonder in each piece.
