Sandy travels to far reaching exotic places like Sri Lanka and the Maldives Islands where the vibrant colors of nature are her inspiration: the aqua tones of the Indian Ocean, the beauty of the lotus flower, pristine white sand, a beautiful sunrise, and the intricate patterns of exotic animals.  These are the tones that she chooses in semi-precious gems ~ tourmaline, aquamarine, iolite and amazonite.

Her interest in culture, early civilizations, and indigenous societies inspire her to use ancient beads, fossilized ivory, stone and shell to create her one-of-a-kind collection.  She says, "It delights me to know people are wearing a piece of history."  Her jewerly is a true reflection of her advenuresome nature to unveil, design and hand construct beautiful and unique art treasures.
