Aletha A. Tjaden's Profile
My name is Aletha Tjaden, I live in Sunbury, Pennsylvania with my husband and two children.
I love rocks, and rock collecting. I have piles of self collected fossils and minerals around my house and yard. That's how it started...I needed a way to bring these local fossils and minerals to the people in this area, so they can see what wonderful things can be found in this amazing area. I needed to make it more interesting, to catch people's attention without it being a boring geology lesson. So I started with pendants made out of fossils and minerals from Pennsylvania's coal fields. Something beautiful to wear and with a fascinating story.
I hesitate to call what I do "jewelry making" I think of it as a way to carry these beautiful and fascinating stones with me.
I leave no stone left unturned, and my husband would say I leave no stone left on the ground, so I would like to…
