Hello!  Welcome to Tinacity AD!  I am an artist, jeweler, sculptor, appraiser, and whatever else I am inspired to tackle.  Born and raised in Minnesota, schooled in Wisconsin and settled in the amazing city of Saint Louis, Missouri.  I love jewelry, the arts, making and fixing things.   Early in my career I managed to find a small independent shop that focused on one-of-a-kind designs, custom-work, diamonds and gemstones. There, I had the opportunity to grow, experiment and learn for which I will be forever grateful. I have since acquired my gemology degree, learned jewelry CAD and 3D printing, and more bench skills.  Now I have my own studio where I create jewelry designs, do repairs and restore vintage jewelry items.

I am so pleased to share with you the things that I create, design, appreciate and collect or just feel like sharing.  You can find my pieces here in my store and at my Etsy store.  Or, if you’d like a custom-made piece, please contact me.  Enjoy!
