Minimalist Everyday Jewelry, SAND+GRIT pieces are equal parts classic + edgy, pretty + gritty. Who says we can’t be both!  Each design is handcrafted by me in my workspace in Carlsbad, California. I love spending my days sanding, bending, hammering and searching for unique jewelry components, in the end creating a piece that will hopefully bring someone joy. Jewelry making has been a longtime passion. As a former math and science teacher, I have always appreciated the beauty found in nature and geometric shapes. Now as a jewelry designer, I feel I have found an outlet to share this passion in SAND+GRIT. For years I have been creating meaningful personalized gifts with natural materials for friends, teachers and family.  I love that a simple beautiful piece of jewelry can not only elevate your t-shirt and jeans , but evoke a feeling and spark a memory of a special time and place. I strive to create pieces that my customers love to wear just as much as they love to give.

Jewelry Components/Care

My number one goal is to have happy returning customers who love wearing their jewelry as much as I do! SAND+GRIT pieces are meant to be worn often and enjoyed. My products are handcrafted with care to create long lasting beautiful pieces. The delicate gold-filled chains should be worn with care. I recommend not wearing jewelry in the ocean, shower, while exercising or to bed. If your piece is ever in need of repair, please contact me.


A thick layer (100 times more than gold-plated items) of 14K gold bonded to a base metal, gold-filled products are an affordable beautiful alternative to solid gold.  Clean the chain carefully with a mild detergent and warm water if needed.


With a higher silver purity of 93.5% , increased durability, a brighter white appearance and higher tarnish resistance, it is a great choice over traditional sterling silver for everday wear.  If your piece needs cleaning, use warm water and mild soap solution then pat dry.
