About

About 7 years ago, my then 4 year old son took a real interest in rocks (what little boy doesn't? Bring on the quarries and the rock tumblers!). And the collection began! That worked out well for me, as it gave me a buddy to take to all those rock, gem and mineral shows I always loved. It was at one of these shows that I saw a wire wrapped stone for the first time. It was love at first sight and there was no going back. That was the moment my obsession was born. I knew I had to learn to do this! Truthfully, I attended a 4 hour course, made one hell of an ugly pendant (yeah, I do still have it) and then decided I would teach myself to do this if it was the last thing I did. And so I did.

My friends joke that, at this point, I must have a stone to match every outfit I own. Truth be told, I have one even for outfits I haven't bought yet! I now can no longer even try on the the ones that I craft to…

I now can no longer even try on the the ones that I craft to judge how they look... if it hits my neck it becomes mine! I have pendant guinea pigs that happily do that job for me : )

Each and every one of the stones speaks to me in some way. Hopefully one of them will speak to you too. I put much effort in wrapping them in a way that will not disguise their beauty but enhance it.

If you see something you like which is sold, feel free to message me, its possible I have a similar stone. I am open to custom orders as well.

Thanks for taking a look. Please message me if you have any questions at all!
