On long trip to escape Montana's cold and snow, I found some exciting new gemstones! I am happy to announce that my shop now offers loose gemstones and cabochons in addition to eclectic handmade jewelry. I just love this beautiful genuine amber!

About

Doing what you love comes out in everything you create, at least I work that way!

Making jewelry has been a hobby for me for many years. I enjoy the creativity of it and the chance to bring my passion to life in a real, tangible accessory that can be enjoyed for years to come. Sharing that has become a privilege and a joy!

Originally from Virginia, I found a love of history and all the relics and accessories of times past. I lived there for many years before moving with my husband and children to Montana in search of better life for our children. Montana hasn't disappointed. Here I find inspiration that is different than the inspiration I got in Virginia. The combination of the two places has influenced me and made me a better artisan crafter than ever before. At least, I like to think so!

Finding beautiful gemstones, some of them from right here in Montana, is as much fun for me as putting them altogether into a work of art -- a finished piece of jewelry. As my health has brought me to a place where I can no longer teach school, I crossed over the "intersection" of life to work on something I can do and love just as much as teaching!

I hope that you will look at my collection and be able to see something you'd like to have or to give as a gift. If, however, you don't find what you are looking for, please ask. I would be honored to make a piece of jewelry that you would treasure.

My workshop is my hideaway, my special place where the creative juices can flow and I feel that spending time making jewelry there is helping me heal! So thank you for your part in that process!

    Jewelry fanatic and rock hound, that's how I describe myself. When other people like, or especially buy, the jewelry I make, or the gemstones I offer, I get a real thrill! I design each jewelry piece and hand pick all the gemstones I sell.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I would love to create a custom piece of jewelry for you! Please feel free to ask.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is now available in festive red and white for the holidays and other special occasions at an additional $2 per item.

Wholesale availability

I strive to keep the cost of my jewelry pieces and gemstones as low as possible, so at this time I do not have special wholesale pricing.

Sizing details

In some cases different size necklace chains can be offered for pendant necklaces. Please feel free to ask. Of course, it depends on the individual jewelry item whether or not the request can be accommodated and may require additional expense.

Care instructions

In most cases jewelry should not be worn while swimming, bathing or exercising. Keep jewelry items free of chlorine, sweat and dirt at all times. Clean with a soft cloth occasionally and keep jewelry in the small zippered bag I send it in when not being worn. Following these steps will prolong the life of the jewelry items you have purchased. In the case of gemstones, cabochons and crystals, similar directions apply. For example, keep stones and crystals free from chlorine, sweat, dirt and salt water and under no circumstances should these minerals be cleaned with or immersed in cleaning solutions. Gently buffing them with a soft cloth is advisable, however.
