I mainly work with various forms of quartz which is pretty all encompassing, as its the most prevalent mineral beneath our feet. I hand forge many of my components and set stones using silver-smithing techniques. I love to showcase each stone's organic beauty and I feel great joy to know that my jewelry helps people feel more beautiful and powerful on a daily basis.

I strive to shop locally and acquire all my materials in the USA. All my shipping and packaging materials are 100% recyclable. I am currently the head of all departments for my business. I love what I do and I hope you love it too.
