About

We are a group of artists that works the old fashioned way. Our designer creates her layouts by hand; no design software or shortcuts here. We do not use casting in our workshop; every one of our pieces begins with a sheet of gold or silver, which is forged into finished jewelry using flame and jeweler's saw by our master goldsmith. We like old ways, and as long as we are around we can promise they won't vanish. We are happy to find a like-minded marketplace like Etsy ... we are also happy to take our time, to be a small and personal business with heart. It is a true pleasure for us to be able to offer items of real value and lasting beauty to our customers.

Note from the Designer: Most of my designs have a story; many are informed by the cultures I have lived in during the past 20 years, their symbols and flavors. Others were inspired by current events in this…

It is a true pleasure for us to be able to offer items of real value and lasting beauty to our customers.

Note from the Designer: Most of my designs have a story; many are informed by the cultures I have lived in during the past 20 years, their symbols and flavors. Others were inspired by current events in this world, and a desire to play a part (Tranquility, Mahawan). Several were inspired by love -- whether romantic, passionate, familial or universal.

Due to our geographic placement (see map), we have access to some incredible one-of-a-kind gemstones that would normally not find their way to market. We set these in our "One-of-a-Kind" pieces. The gemstones for our designs that we repeat are cut specifically for our work by a Jain family in Jaipur, India -- one of the world's oldest gemstone cutting centers. We appreciate the integrity they bring to their work, their enormous skill, and their excellent judgment in purchasing beautiful rough. Our supplier also works with some of the leading European jewelry houses, and understands our need for quality in gem material and cutting. We hope you see the natural beauty of our gemstones; untreated whenever possible, authentic, top quality and varied.

We enjoy what we do, and hope that comes through in our finished work. We also enjoy hearing from you; please feel free to write with any questions, comments or inquiries ... and thank you for visiting!
