Welcome to my shop Living Gemstones! I'm so glad you've stopped to take a look at the results of my passion--designing and creating beautiful gemstone jewelry. I think you will find the elegance very refreshing and unique! The heart behind my creations is the fact that we are all precious gems. On the outside, we may look like regular old rocks, but the Master Jeweler sees our potential and who we truly are on the inside...precious. We all just need a little refining and oftentimes restoration. This polishing process is what makes us shine and our inside becomes our outside.

Living Gemstones came as an inspiration from the Lord and from 1 Peter 2:4-6 where we are described as being built up as "living stones." The stones and colors all have significance and identity meanings. For example, the color white is symbolic of purity. Blue, revelation or enlightenment to the…

Welcome to my shop Living Gemstones! I'm so glad you've stopped to take a look at the results of my passion--designing and creating beautiful gemstone jewelry. I think you will find the elegance very refreshing and unique! The heart behind my creations is the fact that we are all precious gems.

We all just need a little refining and oftentimes restoration. This polishing process is what makes us shine and our inside becomes our outside.

Living Gemstones came as an inspiration from the Lord and from 1 Peter 2:4-6 where we are described as being built up as "living stones." The stones and colors all have significance and identity meanings. For example, the color white is symbolic of purity. Blue, revelation or enlightenment to the mysteries of the spiritual realm. Many of my pieces, particularly my necklaces, have names that depict our Christian, prophetic nature as the Bride of Christ.

I personally pray over each piece before it is shipped out and it is my hope and desire that they will draw you closer to our ultimate Creator and Lover of our Souls and awaken within their wearers the truth of who she is in Christ. If you would like to know how you can receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and secure eternal life, I would love to share--just email me!

I began designing and making jewelry in 2006 when I began having dreams of the designs. I quickly realized just how much I loved it since it was a wonderful combined expression of my creative passion and my joy of relevations of His love and desire for intimacy with us. He's a very close up and personal God! I've had fantastic opportunties and successes at the World Trade Center, great little boutiques, and at home shows, but this is my first launch into online sales and I'm excited!

I absolutely LOVE working with fine gemstones and enjoy building upon their own natural brillances that God gave them. I use only the finest gemstones and natural stones as well as the highest quality 925 sterling silver, 14k gold fill metal and 24k gold vermeil.

I am the happy wife of a wonderful man and mother to a teenage son and daughter and an elementary age daughter. They are each the joy and loves of my life.

Thanks for visiting!
Blessings,
