I work as a fashion designer specialized in girls clothing. I assist Daniel with packaging and necklace designs.
I’m a full-time Steampunk jewelry designer and sculptor. I make all the Steampunk rings, earrings, bracelet, I also choose the design for the Steampunk necklace ,take pictures and list new items. I’m the designer behind the Steampunk line of jewelry.
All other tasks are shared between ourselves as a team.
I worked for several years in customer service in a travel agency and finance until 2008.
In April of 2008 I started to make rings just for fun … I spent several hours every day perfecting and developing my own technique to Create an original design. I quickly started to make very retro-futurist model of rings. At that time I decided to embark on this adventure, quit my job and try to live on my jewelry full-time. One day a friend told me what I was doing was Steampunk. I researched the subject and fell in love with this culture. I always liked Steampunk but I didn’t know there was a name for it.
