If ever two beings could be said to be “distracted by shiny things” it would be us.
My pieces for The Victorian Magpie’s Steampunk jewelry line are inspired by my fascination with the Victorian Goth scene and Steampunk, even while remaining a conservative, traditional jeweler. My continued friendship with one of my former jewelry coworkers (June Druchunas) who shares this love of Steampunk led to the formation of The Victorian Magpie.
I spent almost 35 years working in the Jewelry retail and corporate world as aStore Manager, Visual Display Manager, Special Events Coordinator, and Repair Services Manager. It was time for a change. My love for antiques, jewelry and watches inspired me to start creating these items from non-functional treasure. To be able to give them new life is very satisfying. I was born in New York, on Long Island, and after many hops around the country I settled down in Wilmington, NC.
