Merrill customized this ring for me with my family's birthstones. The ring was rendered with the loving care of an artist whose investment in her craft goes beyond the material, and this truly showed in the beautiful final product. She is attentive and really humanized the process. It was enjoyable to work with her and made the gift that much more special. We love it! Thanks, Merrill!

Way back when.......
My passion for stone and gems started at a very early age. My parents were active members of the local rock and mineral society and every weekend, would whisk us off for excursions at local agate pits or amethyst mines. As a toddler this was even better than a sandbox.
In my teens (which was a long time ago!) I started creating jewelry with simple beading projects, my favorite being watches made with semi-precious gems, malechite, lapis and more. Upon retirement in 2011 and with the luxury of time, I decided to take it further however professional training was not to be found locally other than a 3 day course with a master artisan brought in from Oregon. I signed up immediately and it only wet my appetite for more. After hundreds of hours on the net and learning by trial and error, my craft continues to evolve. Some days I have so many new ideas I want to try that I don't even know where to begin!
I have been featured in magazines such as Metal Clay Artist and Amazing Canadian Fashion (ACF) and have connected with many clients from around the world. Thank you to these people who continue to inspire, challenge and motivate me.
