Constantly growing, learning, and expanding her style through self discovery and artisan workshops, Gretchen’s work is multi-faceted. Her lines are created by utilizing any and all types of gemstones and pearls known to man, with an affinity towards the unusual, like pearls in non traditional shapes, and bright vibrant colors. To these gemstones, she adds fibers, seashells, and found objects, which add sensual texture, and an incredible diversity to her pieces. Gretchen combines these treasures in startlingly original ways resulting in exclusive, one of a kind, or limited edition pieces.
