I started making gemstone jewelry more than 18 years ago, as a creative outlet from my
"corporate" jobs. My dream was to make more jewelry and less management presentations.
In 2015, when I left the corporate world, I was finally able to make Blue Chick Jewelry a
central focus of my life.
Through my designs, I strive to celebrate life's simple joys – catching the changing light of the
sky over the marsh, discovering a tumbled piece of sea glass while beachcombing, enjoying a
much deserved dessert, listening to a favorite song, the feeling when you are first captivated
by a new friend. I choose specific stones and create unique designs to capture these
moments. Some pieces are delicate and others are bold. I especially enjoy requests for
custom jewelry. I use top quality materials including a wide range of precious and semiprecious
gemstones, pearls, shell, sterling silver, gold, silk, suede and leather, and I hand
select each strand of stones. My husband and I are Orleans residents and the Cape has been
a major source of inspiration ever since I spent my first summer on Nauset Beach more than
40 years ago.
