Handmade One of a Kind Sterling Silver Jewelry

It all started with my mom and her love of turquoise and silver. She passed it onto me and I fell in love with it. I started out setting stones in leather bags back when I was 19. Life moved on and I grew up to become a mom and a wife. The kids finally got old enough to stay out of my stuff, so I went back to school and fell in love with silversmithing!
I have my studio in the garage, amongst all the carpentry and camping items. Hey, it's a space! I'll take it! My wonderfully supportive husband built me a soldering table and my jewelers bench. I feel like the real deal now!
I love starting with a beautiful stone cabochon that has caught my eye and my heart. I then grab some sheet metal and bezel wire and go from there. I'm much better at making it up as I go along than drawing. It's more exciting to see what the end result will be! It's a surprise! That is why I offer only my work and I do not do custom jewelry at this time. I love what creative ideas have been hiding in my subconscious!
I love how my jewelry makes people smile and light up. That is what makes it all worth it for me. The happiness on others faces. The connection I see when a piece of jewelry and a human meet for the first time and click. I know that feeling. It's a "meant to be" moment. Life is short so we should cherish those times.
I make jewelry because I love jewelry. It's a satisfying feeling to create like this. I truly feel blessed to be able to make things so beautiful.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop! I really appreciate it!

You'll also find my husband's one of a kind wooden items in my shop. He's a carpenter who see that pile of "throw away lumber" as unique as the wood itself.
