About

Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at my work! I've been making art of many kinds for most of my life, and making and selling jewelry since 2007.

I enjoy working with precious metals - sterling silver and fine silver and gold. I strive to make things high quality, so if you like it and take good care of it, you'll be able to enjoy it for a long time.

I LOVE hammering. You can probably see this from all the hammered pieces in my shop. When I was little and my dad was working on a wood project, he would sometimes let me have a chunk of wood and some nails and I could hammer until my nails were gone. Maybe that's why I like it still. I also enjoy the meditative process of chainmaille, and sorting through a pile of "fixin's" that I've cut and soldered (and hammered, of course) to find what goes together for a pair of earrings.

Mostly I like seeing how bright and shiny everything is when it comes out of the tumbler after hours of cleaning and polishing!

Most of my stones are cut and polished by myself or my wonderful husband. It is a truly rewarding experience to start with a rough "rock", slice it and shape it and polish it until the colors are intensified and the surface has a brilliant shine. Each stone is such a work of art, the settings I make for them are usually deliberately simple - just something to give them a nice little frame.

I live and work in a smoke free, dog-full environment. Although occasionally the beasts will want to leave a fur or two in the packing tape, all jewelry is cleaned and stored in plastic until it is shipped. If you have allergies or have any concern about this, please let me know when ordering so I can take extra precautions when packing your order.

Please note that any qualities I write about stones and their special meanings and purposes are for information and entertainment only. I cannot make any promises that any emotional or medical conditions described will be healed by these stones. I find these properties interesting, and I think it adds personality to the stone when you hear a story about where it came from and how it might be used. My information is compiled from various sources, and presented here for anyone who has an interest in these details.
