Nature, Art, Meaning, Memories: My natural stone jewelry has it's beginnings in stream-beds and in a little girl let to run loose in the forest.
Remember those childhood days spent on the beach, when you returned home with your pockets full of pebbles, shells and sand? That sense of wonder you got when you found that perfect, dew-spangled spiderweb?
That's why I make this natural stone jewelry, in honor of all of these wonder-moments that bring us closer to a meaningful life! (Quite honestly, in honor of all of my own wonder-moments that have made it so awesome to be alive!)
Some of the stones in my natural jewelry are ones I've gathered myself, some I've been given, some I've bought. (The more colorful stones come from a very nice artisan who lives in Idaho, she gathers them herself on the shores of Spirit Lake.)
All of my stones are natural, not colored or shaped or smoothed or treated. Some I drill, some come pre-drilled. I use a diamond-tipped hollow coring bit and a dremel to drill the holes. (Under some water to keep the bit from overheating and to help the drilling go faster.)
I could go on and on, but I won't. You can check out my facebook fan page, blog and my shop website if you want to learn more and be one of my super, awesome, mega-friends!
Owner, Designer, Maker
I grew up with some goats, my brother and my sister on a back-to-the-land farm in Pennsylvania, graduated from Allegheny College with a bachelor of art in fine arts with a concentration in ceramic sculpture and a minor in geology. I love bunnies!
Pisky, d. 2010
Pisky was my constant beading companion, house bunny and good friend of 7 laff-filled years. I would work sitting on the floor by the coffee-table and she would sit by me, play with my pliers, beg for attention and eat my peanut-butter toast.
