The Insecta Collection is an ongoing process of creating jewelry that mimics the entire Insecta family.

Ever since I can remember, I have been fascinated by insects. As a child, I would collect fireflies and ladybugs in glass jars. I could be content for hours, twisting my hands as they crawled up my fingers and eventually flew away.  As I grew older, I started to study the meanings that coincide with each insect that is prominent in my life. All signify change, convincing me that they have led me to where I am today.
