My Story

I'm a problem solver who loves a good challenge and making other people happy with my artwork.

A photo I took of a white dandelion in my backyard.

My entire life I've been a creative entrepreneur thanks to the support of my wonderful parents and extended family who nurtured my creative endeavors. I was known to make and sell my handmade creations to my schoolmates from junior high through college to earn some extra pocket money. I just loved creating with my hands! Everything I learned was from books. The internet wasn't a thing yet.

I've dabbled in everything but found my calling in jewelry in my late teens. On one fine day in 2007 my American boyfriend showed me a beautiful unconventional wire wrapped jewelry on deviantArt during one of our chat sessions. I'd never seen such an art form before so I investigated further. Aware of my interest, he brought me several spools of colorful craft wire when he came to Surabaya for a visit. I bought a few wire wrapping tutorials to get me started and before long I was unstoppable. Little did he know it was a beginning of a lifelong passion.

Soon after, I started selling my wire wrapped jewelry online. My patrons came from all around the world: successful and creative individuals who appreciated the hard work and artistry behind every curl and every hammer strike on my pieces. Inspired by mostly botanical and natural elements, my jewelry style is unmistakeable while my materials are ethically sourced.

With a solid background as a graphic designer and a digital painter for hire, doing commissioned works feels natural for me. I'm a problem solver who loves a good challenge and making other people happy with my artwork.

Moving to the US to marry the love of my life has proven to be good for both me and my jewelry business. My skill sets and tools have grown exponentially ever since. In addition to jewelry I'm also a backyard photographer. I love taking photos of flowers and little bugs with my macro lens when it's warmer outside and use them for inspiration. What can I say, my artistic juice is strong! 😉

My Dreams

I have a dream to build a jewelry school that’s fully funded by regular donations from art patrons. With a large amount of donors we would be able to provide quality teachers while keeping the students’ costs low. The students could pay minimal fees to take classes at my school and the teachers will be rewarded handsomely.

My school will help creative individuals jump start their businesses focusing on both the skills for making art and the skills for running a successful business.

As you can see from the photo, my mother had a very happy birthday... Peas In A Pod was a huge hit. Thank you. It is a very special piece. Hugs and friendship.
