From raw crystal, bead or stone into something to treasure.

There is something so awe-inspiring about the natural beauty that comes out of the ground.
I began making jewellery many years ago, starting with simple gemstone bead pendants, and graduating to natural crystals and gemstones. These were my first wire wraps, opals came later. I learned how to wire wrap with sterling and 14k gold filled wire to best present the beauty. I found the best thing to do was to let the gemstone itself dictate the direction the wire would take. This had some really unusual results and each and every one seems to end up as I feel the stone is happy with. I particularly like raw crystals, such as points and rough gemstones and minerals, sometimes combining them.

I have no set process to what I do, each gemstone is individual and unique, I hope you like them too.
