About

Hand Made Cut and Polished Gemstones and Silversmithing

Osiyo,

I am part Cherokee and Chippewa Indian. I am very proud of my Indian heritage and I show my Native pride in each work of art that I create. I feel a spiritual connection to Mother Earth and the Creator and this connection guides me as I work. All of my designs are inspired by my Native American ancestors and relatives and with this inspiration I feel each piece is a spiritual work of art blessed by our Creator.

I never know what I am going to create. I just start working with a stone and each step of the design comes to me as I create. I hand stamp designs and hammered textures into the metal and then antique the jewelry with layers of antiquing solution to bring out the stamping and hammering designs I put into my metal. My goal is to make each piece of jewelry look like it has been around for many many years.

Along with my metal smithing skills I am also a lapidary artist. Some of my cabochons are bought at rock shows or here on Etsy, but most of the stones in my creations are found, slabbed and hand cut and polished by me on my Diamond Pacific Genie . . . another passion of mine!

I am so happy to create beautiful rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets and am especially happy when someone loves my work and has to have a piece for themselves. I love that my art is all over the world now :)

Maybe someday I will be famous . . .
