Announcement   If you are looking for something original and exciting to liven up your wardrobe or just to pick things up a bit in general, then my handcrafted bracelets and pendants might just fit the bill. Fusing richly grained wood and large, naturally shaped gemstones, my jewelry is eye-catching and distinctive. The large and whole gemstones, polished and mounted directly on richly grained Indian Rosewood, are especially striking.

Working with whole gemstones complements the method I have been using until now which involves small chunks of a gemstone that I set into the naturally formed knots, splits and cracks of the wood and then polish.

To make sure that my bracelets/bangles will fit properly, I have recently developed a way to make them expandable by creating a small channel or channels in the bracelet into which I can thread a durable stretch jewelry cord. This gives the bracelet a "stretchability" of about a quarter to half an inch (7mm to 13mm). This means that there should be no problem with slipping the bracelet over your knuckles. With my expandable bracelets, you just have to worry about getting the correct wrist size.

I am glad that you are looking at my shop and hope that you find something you like. But what about the possibility of obtaining precisely what you want just by designing it yourself? If you are attracted to jewelry fashioned from wood and set with a wide variety of colorful and attractive gemstones, then I invite you to join me in designing and making a bracelet for you and you alone, a treasured accessory that will accent your uniqueness and individuality. If you would like to order your own self-designed piece, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

These wood pieces have such an organic feel to them, and at the same time they are also so elegant....this looks as lovely with a white T and jeans as it does with a dressy blouse and slacks....such versatility and style!

Everything was wry carefully packaged as well.....excellent customer service and communication too!
