I love the creative process and building things from nothing. It’s always been a dream of mine to create something big one day, something I was involved with from the very stage the idea was conceived. Something that would create a job I am passionate about and that keeps me waking up every morning with excitement and joy. A job that enables me to live a balanced life.

In 2009, my lovely friend Lex took me for my very first adventure to a photo booth. Don’t ask me how I got to that age without ever having been to one, because I just don’t know the answer to that question, but I do know I’m so glad it happened then because it was the birth of my photo jewelry business, PicktureThat!.
We had fun posing for pictures as though we were the featured guests of a red carpet event for weirdos (there are some pictures we will never let other humans lay eyes on ;)) and I instantly fell in love with the little photo strip it deposited into my eager hands. My love for it was too strong to simply slide it into a photo album or hang it on my refrigerator with a magnet + that’s when I knew I had to turn it into a wearable memory.
Truth be told, the first photo bracelet was hideous but it was something new and exciting and I loved it all the same. Since that time all those years ago, the jewelry has evolved into beautiful, dainty pieces that showcase cherished memories of loved ones and it makes my heart swell when I get connect with customers and hear the stories behind the photos. PicktureThat! is my dream come to life! ♥
