I began creating jewelry in 2005 after years of dreaming and drawing the designs. Working 3 days for Architectural Digest magazine and spending the rest of my time in the the studio either in Manhattan or on the south coast of Massachusetts, I have been able to build an inventory of designs that grow very often from what I want to have in my jewelry drawer to what challenges me next in the studio.
My mother, Susan Barker, is a great inspiration to me. She made silver jewelry in the mid-seventies while raising my brother and me, returning to her work again in 2005. The Bicycle Bracelet is one of her origianal designs that I requested to continue to produce. Today my mother and I exhibit together as often as possible.
I invite you to tour through the pages of my site and hope you find inspiration and a piece or two that you just must have.
