Ok I had bought a lovely coral necklace from Lynne at a gem and jewelry event in Laughlin Nevada a few years ago. Truly fell im love with her work. Found her Online and Spotted THIS obsidian necklace. After drooling over it a few days I decided I had to have it. It arrived quickly and more than met my expectations. The beading is so tiny and intricate that it's mind blowing. She really put a lot of work into this. When I ordered it I did not realize there are many colors of obsidian. I thought it was only black. Imagine my surprise to find out its a golden brown and soooo bwait if il. I have many things I can wear it with and the chain it came with is a perfect length for many of my blouses. I am already planning to have her make at least two or three pair of earrings in the fall. I can't wait!

I'm sorry this wasn't what you expected. After reaching out to you and offering a refund even though it had been two months since your purchase, I was pleased when you said you still wear and like it; it just was different than you thought it would be. Enjoy!

About

Creating one of a kind jewelry using sterling silver, copper and 14k gold filled wire to weave and wrap natural stones and beads.

I create mixed media jewelry with a focus on earthiness and nature. I love the earthy elegance of wire mixed with stones and beads.

My love of natural stones is deep seated. As a child I loved to hunt for agates at the beach. And as an adult, I've collected rocks everywhere I've visited. I have jars of them in my home and they decorate my gardens. I love the texture and feel of natural stones and love to research their origins. I just never new what to do with them until I started making jewelry.

I come from a crafty family and have tried my hand at everything from knitting and crochet to ceramics and beadwork. When I first started making jewelry, I only made earrings. We had a wonderful bead store in my town and I was amazed at the natural stones I found there. I made earrings for co-workers and friends. Holiday earrings and wedding earrings. Everyday earrings and dressy earrings. But although I enjoyed it, I was never passionate about beading.

In 2009, I retired from my career in state government and moved to Arizona with my Husband. At a local craft show I met a woman who wrapped stones in wire. Now THAT got my attention. I started playing with wire and stones, and since then have created hundreds of jewelry pieces, developing a style uniquely my own. I work primarily with Sterling silver, copper and 14k gold filled wire and natural stones. I also use crystal and metal beads in my designs. When you purchase a piece of my jewelry, you're getting more than just a bracelet, necklace or earrings created by an award winning artist. You're getting a piece of nature that has been cut and polished by craftsmen handpicked by me and then carefully and artfully wrapped or woven by me into a piece you can cherish for years to come.

Thanks for shopping my store. My goal is to make unique, well made pieces that will make you smile when you wear them. I strive to achieve 100% customer satisfaction and will make you my top priority when you purchase from me.

I always welcome feedback and if you have a great jewelry idea, send it my way. I take special orders and can help you choose stones and wire to wrap a beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece made just for you.


All of my pieces are handmade and may vary slightly from the photos. Each is one of a kind. Gemstones are all slightly different in shape and color and may contain slight natural inclusions. Also keep in mind that computer monitors can distort color somewhat, and can make the piece look slightly different than in person. I do my best to describe items as accurately as possible. If you have additional questions regarding sizing etc, please contact me prior to placing an order.
