The Energy Garden, creating wearable art from the elements of nature....

Located in the Heart of California Gold Country, we work with the elements of nature to create jewelry that is both beautiful and unique. Quality and craftsmanship can be seen in each and every piece as they are cast, set and finished by hand for jewelry that will truly last a lifetime...

The River Gold Designs are handcrafted, using natural Gold Bearing Quartz, Placer Gold Nuggets, Diamonds and Genuine Gemstones from around the world. Custom work is always welcome, together we can create "one of a kind" rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and more. With their mix and match metal and gemstone options, these "California Style" designs make beautiful Engagement Rings and Wedding Sets...

The Metaphysical Jewelry Designs are based on the ancient teachings of Reiki, Yoga, Qi Gong, Feng Shui and the healing properties of gems and minerals. Each style is unique as I combine genuine gemstones with ancient healing symbols to create beautiful jewelry designs of power and purpose. These special pieces are easily customized with optional gemstones and metal finishes to make perfect gifts for Reiki practitioners, Yoga students, Feng Shui enthusiasts, or anyone practicing Meditation or other Healing Arts.....

Feel free to contact me with any questions or requests, I look forward to working with you...

"The Energy Garden" is committed to providing beautiful, handcrafted, jewelry designed to last a lifetime.

Using the "Lost Wax" technique, each original design is first hand carved from wax then cast into either 14k Gold or Sterling Silver. Each piece is then lovingly polished and set using only high quality Diamonds and Gemstones from reputable wholesalers.

The "River Gold" designs are accented with natural Placer Gold Nuggets found up here in the ancient riverbeds of Northern California. Placer Gold Nuggets are pieces of gold that have eroded from the earth and have found their way into the rivers and streams to be tumbled and finished into the beautiful specimens you see featured in this custom jewelry line.

All Gold Quartz specimens and Placer Gold Nuggets are uniquely different in character, size and color. Please allow for some variation as I offer you original and "one of a kind" style with every design.

Care instructions

Sterling Silver will naturally tarnish with age from it's exposure to air. Some feel this adds charm to the piece and welcome this change. Some would like to retain the original luster and shine. To keep up a nice shine, gently rub with a soft cloth as needed to remove any tarnish.
