About

Bringing It All Together.......from rocks to jewelry.

Well, it all began quite by accident when I retired.One day I went to a rock and fossil shop where they gave silver smith classes.
Honestly they should have been called fishing classes, I was "hooked" right from the start.

The shop also sold rocks by the pound, so now I am also hooked on bringing home rocks. At that point I had to figure out what to do with a yard full of pretty rocks other than just love them. Fortunately for me I found a lapidary instructor not to far away, and started taking classes on how to cut and polish stones....Am I in heaven now!

For me the process of designing my next piece of jewelry begins as I slice the stone. Now thickness, color, pattern, and shape begin to effect my design decisions, all of which are important parts of my creative process.

Cutting my own stones also gives me the unique ability to create one of a kind pieces, I have more control over the stones I chose to utilize, and I am no longer restricted to the standard designer shapes or ovals.

Phase two is the manipulation of metal to enhance the stones. So challenging and extremely rewarding, I love what I am doing and try to transfer that feeling into everything I create.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my shop. Hope you have enjoyed your visit.
