SToNZ: organically elegant silver jewelry inspired by nature
My creative passions led me to art school (Go Blue!) where I earned a BFA in graphic design and illustration.
I worked as a professional illustrator at American Greetings for almost a decade and continued to do design work for a variety of clients from my home-based graphic design studio (SmARTwork Studio, Inc.) while raising my identical twin daughters.
Spending all that time on the computer, made me really miss the hands-on act of actually MAKING things.
So, I am back to my passion of metalsmithing.
As a child I spent most of my summers at the beach. The seaglass and beach stones I collected over the years were filling bowls all over my studio and home.
Then I realized I could creatively combine my two passions: making beautiful jewelry and beach combing for natural treasures. (Oh, and foraging at garage sales and flea markets for old keys, tokens and old sterling silver jewelry parts.) The result is SToNZ.
I am so grateful for Etsy and how it has enabled me to connect with so many wonderful people around the world. (both customers and fellow artists)
Thank you to my inspiring, supportive customers. You remind me every day that SToNZ is not just something that I do for me. I do it for you!
