Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island Olivia’s journey to becoming a bladesmith has been far from conventional. As a child her time was divided between the polarizing worlds of being raised in a sex shop and backpacking in the wilderness. At the age of 15 she dropped out of high school and started making leather whips full time. It was this period that was the birth of her passion for creating with her hands.
She left her hometown at the age of 17 and moved to NYC. For the next 8 years she fell into a world addiction, homelessness , adventure and playing music for a living around the country.
At the age of 25, after a life of turbulence and tribulation, Olivia found a profound sense of purpose in dedicating herself to the craft of bladesmithing. Over the next several years, through trial and error she honed her skills to create a style all her own and found her niche in the world. She now resides in the south.
