My creative spirit, and appreciation of other cultures, the people and their art, has always been a blessing to me

I come from a family of artist, and I have been a collector since the time I could drive a car. I was never for the mundane, or mass produced. I love the detail and beauty of the olden day things, the character, colors and designs of different cultures, and things created from inspiration, the heart or passion.
Now I did study art, but I make a living as a Social Worker. I am very blessed to love my work, and to make a difference in the world. But creativity has always been a part of me and I have had many artistic ventures.
Among my artistic ventures has been a collection of beads, jewelry and crystals from... from anywhere and everywhere. One day I pulled out my bead collection and started making these necklaces. Not finding the right stone I felt I needed, lead me to Gem Show's, internet and heartfelt exploring during my travels, looking to complete my vision for a design.
I work hard, finding the right color, texture and balance of my designs. I know people want natural stones, and silver. I don't do much silver work myself, so many of the pendants I use, I've purchased elsewhere.
It's been so much fun making such pretty things! I love creating art, mixing my nature spirit, respect for indigenous people, spiritual practices and other cultures all together. You may notice I use beads and styles from a variety of cultures into one piece, because after all, we are all one.

Welcome, and thanks for viewing and appreciating my creations!
Each piece is one of a kind. I make them with a sense of joy and ahhh, and I hope to pass this onto you.
I spend much time searching for high quality, interesting natural stones and pendents. Probably 90% are natural stones, chosen for their beauty and healing properties. Occasionally I may use wood, ceramic or glass crystals.
Some natural stones may also be dyed, heat-treated or stabilized for beauty, strength or shape.
