Born from a love of tattoos, rock ‘n’ roll, and all things retro, I founded Femme Metale “sterling silver that rocks” in January of 2000. As founder and designer, the collection reflects my many and varied inspirations. As an avid fan of everything tattoo-related, many of my designs are inspired by old school tattoo flash. Pop culture, Victorian art, vintage jewelry, flora and fauna, and Old World heraldry also play a big part in my designs. I have used old bubble gum charms, swizzle sticks, childhood toys and a variety of other sources as inspiration. You name it and I could very possibly be inspired.
Each piece is made of .925 sterling silver, is hand cast in limited numbers, and I do all the assembly myself in my studio.
The line is feisty, flirty and edgy and appeals to all types of women, regardless of their age. My 96 year old grandmother wore some of my pieces and my mother has a large collection of my jewelry. I like to say I have something in my collection for everyone. It isn’t only women who can rock Femme Metale, the line includes several pieces just for men. Jewelry should be fun – an outward expression of an individual’s personality.
Now, over ten years after its founding, Femme Metale is well established in the contemporary jewelry market. It’s couture and fine jewelry collection supplement a rocking variety of necklaces, bracelets, funky charms and rings. Although most of my line is strictly sterling silver, In tend to mix it up a bit by incorporating semi-precious stones, cubic zirconium or Swarovski crystals into some of my pieces.
In addition to my sterling silver, I offer custom cast pieces in 14k gold, diamonds and other precious stones for those seeking a more upscale twist to the line. My sterling silver collection ranges in price from $50.00 to $400.00 while the fine jewelry runs from $7000.00 to $12000.00.
As the first jewelry line to incorporate tattoo flash into wearable art, I have been a trail blazer in jewelry design. Always the original, but often imitated, Femme Metale is part of a lifestyle for the people who wear and collect my pieces. With an especially strong following in the Rockabilly, Tattoo and Pin Up communities Femme Metale is the go to jewelry line for those in the know!
A few of my celebrity clients are Sheryl Crow, Kate Moss, Kat Von D, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Miranda Lambert, The Divas Of The WWE and Lorenzo Lamas.
