Announcement   Welcome! All of my jewelry is handmade in my little studio, forged from recycled sterling silver, fine silver, gold, and jewelers quality copper, bronze, and brass.
I live on the Oregon Coast, in Tillamook County. The Chinook meaning of Tillamook is "Land of Many Waters." Five rivers flow into our bay. My love of the water is reflected in my work. Most of the stones in my jewelry are found, while walking my dogs on my local beach. Some I polish, others are left natural, polished by the sand and sea..

About

Handmade Artisan Jewelry

Born and raised on the Oregon Coast in Nehalem, Oregon, I have been creating art in some form all my life.
I am a self-taught silversmith, having found my niche in 2005 when I picked up a silversmith book. Jewelry design has given me an outlet for both my creativity and the love I have always had for rocks, stones, gems, of all shapes and sizes. I've picked up rocks as long as I can remember, and if you checked my pockets, purse, car, and home, you will always find more than a handful of rocks.
My inspiration is found in those things at their natural state, in the texture, and color of the organic, and most of all, the waters edge, where wind, waves, and sand transform a rock into a gem. Walking my dogs along our shoreline I have gathered an endless supply of stones and inspiration. Many of the stones gathered will find themselves transformed again, into pieces of wearable art. The feel, weight, temperature, shape, and color of the stone itself often will inspire the end result.
My Etsy shop has given me not only a place to sell my work but a chance to interact with you the customer. Through my shop we are able to connect and create that special custom piece using stones or found objects that have meaning to you.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
