About

I love being able to bring out the beauty in stones with wire.

I love collecting stones, even as a child. Whenever my husband and I would work check point for the off road races in Baja, I would look for interesting stones.

My husband told me I should do something with them. So I told him this is all his fault.

About that time a friend invited me to the big Tucson Gem and Mineral show and I bought some beautiful stone beads and findings and started making stone beaded jewelry. Thus, I started my business.

I was selling at a farmers market on Saturday and had a customer ask me to made a arrowhead necklace for her boyfriend. I had no idea how to wire wrap and that is the only way I could figure out how to make a pendant as the arrowheads were not drilled. My friend was learning how to wire wrap, so I asked her to show me the basics and she did. I enjoyed it, so I bought some books and cabochons and started wire wrapping. By the way, she loved it.

Word got around and I started getting special request. People started bringing me their stones to wrap for them.

At the Fair, a master wire name sculptor sent a customer to me to have a stunning opal wrapped, as he did not like wrapping stone. She loved it so much she brought 3 more stones for me to wrap for her.

I have met some wonderful people in this adventure and made some great friends.

I don't have a shop, per say.. I have a place I store my stones, beads, wire and tools, but I sometimes work at my desk, at the table, in front of the TV or setting on my bed.
