About

I have always loved crystals and gemstones. All the different colors and natural crystal shapes fascinate me - especially because they grow down under ground where there's no light ... all that color, in the dark ... kind of blows my mind :)

I've been collecting crystals since grade school and whenever I go to a museum or a new town, the "gem and mineral" room or local rock shop is always my ultimate goal. And of course any gem show within an hour's drive is always a must!

I did a lot of traveling all over the country in my 20's and the first time I saw Vermont I knew I was going to come back to stay :) My jewelry workshop is in a little corner in our tiny red house, in front of a big window that looks out at tall pine trees and a 200+ year old Maple. Our yard borders a heavily wooded state park with a narrow creek between. We get lots of animal visitors - deer come to eat the apples that fall off our tree, there are wild turkeys across the road, and I hear coyotes howling and barred owls hooting at night, and tales of black bear visiting our neighbors... and of course so many birds, red and gray squirrels and chipmunks... but haven't seen a moose yet!

Thank you so very much for browsing my shop and if you have any questions or are interested in a custom project please don’t hesitate to contact me.
