About

I love hunting rocks and minerals all around the country and I found my passion for making jewelry (and mining) when I began buying some with semi-precious stones, 11 years ago. I took a few classes and learned from books, magazines, t.v. and videos.
I like incorporating new stones and different styles to my collection constantly.

I'm planning to learn about working with metals and to study to be a gemologist, in the future and be more educated about gems and minerals.

Some people had told me this is the generation of throwing away and that I shouldn't make jewelry that is worth passing on, because the young don't value good quality. However I believe value and good quality is where you should put your money, because if you want to pass on to your daughter, niece, sister or friend, the quality and value still will be there.

However I believe value and good quality is where you should put your money, because if you want to pass on to your daughter, niece, sister or friend, the quality and value still will be there. Even if later in life, you want to re-sell it, you can get your money back and a little bit more.

That doesn't happen with fashion jewelry, unless it survived, for many, many years in exelent condition and it was made for someone very famous or very popular.

That's why I use natural stones and sterling silver in my designs and I put great emphasis in my handcrafting, so, it's a lot better than just average.

I hope I can full fill your expectations, either if you got one of my pieces for yourself or to give it to someone as a gift.

And remember, it's not about having many things, it's about appreciate what you have!

Thank you kindly and GOD bless!!!
