Confession: Before I created a collection for the pearl-themed show at Aaron Faber in spring of 2018, I hadn't considered pairing them with my Origami Collection. But now, I’m a convert!

I'm delighted to announce that I have won one of this year's International Pearl Design Competition awards from the Cultured Pearl Association of America!
MJSA Vision Awards this year! My Chrysanthemum Fold Earrings won Second Place in the Professional Excellence category! And My Sapphire & Diamond dangles won the Responsible Practices Distinction.
