As a young hunter/gatherer, Jayme spent her free time contently exploring the woods, creeks and fields surrounding her home. Her treasure box overflowed with fossils, feathers, stones and bones. Which might explain why, in her adult years, she developed a fondness for native artifacts, often made with the same organic bits she had continued to hoard. Years of collecting tribal art has influenced her design style, which she refers to as “contemporary tribal jewelry.” It’s earthy, organic, and a true reflection of who she is. Throughout her life she has worn many titles from "fashion designer" to "advertising art director," but "bench jeweler" is the title she most enjoys.
