“Influenced by a childhood interest in origami, my earliest jewelry was designed by bending and folding paper, and then metal shapes into three dimensional forms. Now, more than 30 years later, I am still bending precious metals into jewelry.
My recent work involves translating forms observed in nature into wearable design. I work with that essential line or shape that captures a subject in the simplest, most elegant way.
My goal is to develop graceful, well crafted designs that will bring many years of enjoyment to the wearer.”

Lita Sea Glass Jewelry is created using authentic sea glass that has been smoothed and tumbled by Mother Nature. Each piece is carefully designed and handcrafted using the highest quality sterling silver materials and fresh water pearls.
“All of the sea glass used in our jewelry is 100% genuine and is never altered or adjusted in any way, making each piece truly unique! With much of the world’s glass products now being made from plastic, authentic sea glass is becoming increasingly rare and may one day become a “gem” of the past.
Each piece in our collection is thoughtfully designed to remind you of warm summer days, the tranquility of the crashing waves and the scent of the salty air. May it evoke blissful memories of the beach and your own sea glass hunting adventures. We hope you cherish your sea glass jewelry and pass it down for future generations for years to come. Enjoy!”
