As far as she can remember, Frieda was always looking to paint, sketch and create art in different media. She loved to work in clay, pastels and charcoal. When Frieda went into the business world, she never fulfilled her greatest pleasure in creating art.
In 2010 Frieda moved to Arizona from New Jersey. She now lives in the Rio Verde Foothills. While walking one morning, she stumbled onto beautiful stones, pieces of cactus and wood. She felt she could combine these beautiful pieces from the earth of Arizona into jewelry. Frieda gets additional inspiration from the beauty of the sunrises, sunsets, mountains and surrounding landscape. "The beauty of Arizona has energized my soul" Frieda says of her home.
