About

It matters...

I'm a one woman show taking care of every aspect of my business. Everything from designing, metalsmithing, marketing, and photography you name it and I do it. I wouldn't have it any other way!

My business practices align with my love for our environment. Mining is a destructive industry that is rated as one of the top 5 of worst polluting industries globally- destroying the environment, polluting groundwater, killing life both human and animal for decades to come.

I know that statement makes you want to go out and buy some gold jewelry right? My hope is that by becoming more informed, we can make better choices with our hard-earned dollars. Ask where your metals and diamonds come from. How were they sourced? It DOES matter....

By employing green studio practices, and using only recycled metals in every piece I build, I feel I've lessened my impact on our earth. I buy my stones from well-respected lapidary artists and dealers. My silver and gold sheet/wire comes from a U.S. refinery– Hoover and Strong– who have been certified in using 100% recycled metals.

If you want to learn more about the mining industry practices happening around the world AND here in the U.S., please visit the Earthworks Action website and read about the "No More Dirty Gold" Campaign– http://nodirtygold.earthworksaction.org/

I'm inspired by nature and textures, and the power of those torches. I use only recycled precious metals, natural gemstones and cabochons from trusted, well-respected suppliers and lapidary artists.

All of my pieces are designed and fabricated in my own home studio. I take pride in each piece I make and select stones individually. I never buy in bulk, so each piece of jewelry is original.

Rings...
Remember when sizing your fingers that wider bands and stacking rings fit more snugly than thinner ones, and sizes should be ordered up to accommodate for the width.

Thanks for visiting my shop and I hope you like what you see.
