The Art of Jewelry and Self Discovery.

As a young girl I was fascinated with gemstones. Later on my son and I would collect different stones and use a rock tumbler to smooth and polish them.

As time went on I started beading and using wire to create jewelry. It is a continuing process of learning and experimenting that leads me to the jewelry I make today. The gemstones that I use in my designs are hand picked. After reviewing the potential positions of the stone for the best display in color I determine the design of the piece. Whether it be abstract, contemporary, traditional, Victorian or Boho.

One of my greatest joys is that handcrafting jewelry helped me find my birth family. It's a wonderful story that took me on a journey to Bergen Norway and lead me to my birth family after a 27 year search. And most welcome since I lost most of my adoptive family by the time I was 34.

I am truly blessed and grateful.

Best wishes to all and if you would like to see my most current creations please follow me on Instagram - hotrocksbychristin
