You’ve made it to my corner of the internet - welcome!

I make everything here!

My personality is roughly like Anne Shirley, Jessica Day, Larry David & Phoebe Buffay rolled into one (not to be self congratulatory, haha). You know me a little better now!

I’ve always loved design; fashion, interior, graphic & product. In 2012 I began channeling my design love into Good Looking Objects, designing super dreamy jewelry that i’d love to wear, and hope you will too.

As a business owner, these things are important to me: integrity. beauty. magic. kindness. humor. creativity. freedom. good communication. grace. nature. honesty. connecting through creativity.

I appreciate you being here, and hope you find something beautiful & interesting for yourself or a loved one.

It's a very exciting process to produce components from my imagination and see them come to life! From my daydreams and then to my sketches, these pieces are translated into either 3D models or hand carved out of jewelers wax by myself. The wax is then cast in sterling and bronze here in Northern California.

Quality is important to me. The materials I use include sterling silver, gold fill, bronze, stones & top quality gold plating. All pieces are made by myself and are double-checked for quality before I package them up beautifully for you.
