12 yrs later... jewelry design inspired by NYC...

David and I moved to NYC in April 1999... we didn't know anyone here and were just going by instinct and our heart's desire.  The city has embraced us although teaching so much more than I had ever imagined!  First of all, my acting was immediately put on hold as I relied on my retail management experience to live the life we both were comfortable with... the thought of not having the security of a steady income and health insurance scared me way too much.  David was able to find work in the hospitality and architechtural glass industries. 

We had our "day jobs" and our creative souls were soaking in all of the energy of New York City!  Our jewelry design started in Texas with our desire to create what we just couldn't find in the small city of Corpus Christi.  If we imagined it... in a short time it was created!  We have friends who compliment us on our earlier works and say that those pieces still bring them much joy!  Thank you... that makes our souls smile!  :)

Moving to NYC was more than I could have hoped.  We are surrounded by the absolute best artists in many creative fields and their enthusiasm is contageous!  Our designs are constantly evolving because of the varied influences surrounding us.  We never know where our journey takes us... creating, I'm sure, will always be a part of it! 

May one of our creations become that "art piece" you can't live without and may you feel the energy of New York City each and every time you wear it!
