I met Sophie Northcott at Santa Cruz Open Studios in October 2021 and am so happy to have her helping out in my shop. She has her BA from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with an emphasis in graphic design and unimaginable willingness to learn so many different techniques. I feel honored to have such a skilled person working with me. Sophie is also an accomplished painter, avid surfer and lifeguard in the waters off coastal Santa Cruz.

My featured pieces titled "Growth" are a matching sterling silver necklace and earring set. Both are inspired by the beauty and fluidity of Giant Kelp that grows along our coastlines and plays an incredibly important role in the health of our coastal communities. Fun fact: Giant Kelp can grow up to 2ft a day!
