Announcement    If you are looking for something original and exciting to liven up your wardrobe or just to pick things up a bit in general, then my handcrafted bracelets and pendants might just fit the bill. Fusing richly grained wood and large, naturally shaped gemstones, my jewelry is eye-catching and distinctive. The large and whole gemstones, polished and mounted directly on richly grained olivewood or Indian Rosewood, are especially striking.

I work by first turning on a wood lathe the bracelet itself from a rough piece of wood. I then set small chunks of a gemstone into the naturally formed knots, splits and cracks that appear in the wood. This ensures that each piece of jewelry that I offer is unique and original. After polishing the bracelet to as high a sheen as possible, I add several layers of lacquer and wax to enhance the various colors and grain lines that the bracelet embodies. The jewelry that I create will attract attention and arouse curiosity wherever you go.

I am glad that you are looking at my shop and hope that you find something you like. But what about the possibility of obtaining precisely what you want just by designing it yourself? If you are attracted to jewelry fashioned from wood and set with a wide variety of colorful and attractive gemstones, then I invite you to join me in designing and making a bracelet for you and you alone, a treasured accessory that will accent your uniqueness and individuality. If you would like to order your own self-designed piece, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
