Dry Creek Trappings' contemporary jewelry designs are for those individuals searching for a unique expression of the jewelry arts.

I am a fourth generation metal artist and lapidary. My creations are mainly in sterling silver and yellow gold with unusual hand-cut semi-precious stones. I named my jewelry design business “Dry Creek Trappings” after the dry creek beds where my husband and I did much of our “rock hounding” and stone collecting. These unusual stones are then hand-cut and polished in my studio before I create a unique jewelry setting for them.

Many people have asked about my hallmark stamp on my artwork. The initials “C.A.T.S.” are my maiden name initials and I signed all of my art work with my initials since I began drawing. When my father and I took jewelry lessons together for the first time, he presented me with a metal-smithing stamp that had my initials on it.

Although I have a M.A. in Economics, I minored in art while completing my undergraduate degree and studied jewelry and lapidary techniques at established schools of the jewelry arts in the Chicago area. I have been designing and creating jewelry full time for over 19 years and take great pleasure in creating unique commissioned pieces.
