Synergy: The creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
I am founder and owner of Synergy Jewelry. I was born in Florida and raised in Alabama, have lived in Denver Colorado, Ketchikan Alaska, and moved to Maui Hawaii in 2013. I also have a residence in Los Angeles California.
Ones experience of struggles and overcoming those struggles are catalysts that offer choices. One can choose to persevere and realize their fullest potential.
I began working in the jewelry business in 1996. I earned my gem and jewelry credentials from the Gemological Institute of America and was trained in jewelry making by a master jeweler. As customers came into the jewelry store, where I was manager, with pieces of jewelry they received as a gift or they inherited, but the design was not to their taste, I began designing pieces using their metals and gems. The results and the smile it brought to their faces and hearts was such a rewarding experience.
As someone who considers herself an original, I love designing and wearing jewelry that is also original, one-of-a-kind, and has a deep meaning.
Working in the jewelry business over thirty years, managing and helping others realize their dreams, I have met people from all over the world and have had priceless connections and experiences, some brief, some lifelong friendships have been forged. Through the encouragement and support of family and friends, I have reconnected to my passion for creating.
My hope is that you too will love my jewelry, and be inspired to live your dreams. I look forward to meeting all of you.
