In 2010, I founded Made In the Haight to pay homage to the vibrant, historic San Francisco neighborhood where I work, play and live with my family. I individually hand-craft and design each piece of jewelry I make using an eclectic mix of components, including ribbons I've collected from all over the world, Thai mulberry paper, Austrian-made crystals, hand-picked dried flowers, Ammonite fossils, vintage buttons, glass beads, feathers and other found objects. In keeping with my personal priorities, I invest time and energy in my community and donate a portion of my proceeds to support our local charities. My supplies are mostly purchased locally and I shop for sustainably and ethically-produced supplies. I am proud to be recognized as a certified San Francisco Green Business!
