About

My father, Donn, has been a hobbyist lapidary and jeweler for about 40 years. Now that he is retired, he has more time to devote to his long-time art.

We love seeing people's faces light up as they look at the jewelry we've created or even the stones ready and waiting to be turned into wearable art. Selling online changes that experience, but we still like to think we are making people happy.

Wrapture Jewelry is a family-owned business that specializes in wire-wrapped and silver-worked jewelry. Wire-wrapping showcases the natural beauty of polished stone to create attractive accent pieces that display distinctive style. The wires and silver highlight the features of the wrapped stone and give each piece a personal character. Many of the stones used were cut and polished in the Wrapture Jewelry workshop, making each piece truly unique.

Our family selects each stone carefully and works them by hand to create unique and ornamented treasures. Each artist brings his or her own flair to the craft, demonstrating a wide array of styles, patterns, and colors inspired by that artist’s own personality and passion.
