About

Rocks. Minerals. Gemstones. Rediscovering the past while crafting treasures for tomorrow.

I feel fortunate every day to have a profession that excites me and fills me with passion. Few occupations are as lucky as lapidary artists, gem dealers, and jewelry makers. We experience some of Mother Nature's most exquisite creations - luxurious, rare, sparkling gems.

Unique, special jewelry projects require stones that meet the benchmark. Bright Star Gemstones is your source.

Every year thousands of gemstones pass through my hands. Each gem carefully selected and cut for beauty, proper proportions, and uniqueness. You can focus your energy on creating jewelry knowing the best combination of value and service stand behind you.

Let your creative energies flow!

    To say that I love working out of my house and studio overlooking the East River in Colorado would be a significant understatement! While I do enjoy traveling to many gem shows, there's nothing like being in a familiar positive, environment.
