The origins of this shop began with my travels, back in the early '90s. The glassmakers of Murano taught me jewelry could be art, not trifle. They went about their work as if it mattered, and as if they were leaving slivers of themselves behind in the blown objects, lampworked Venetian glass and gorgeous millefiori.

Then there was the crystal. I had never been a "girly girl." Heck, I barely wore any jewelry at all aside from an occasional casual necklace on leather cord. But the shimmer of Swarovski--born in the Austrian Tyrol, where I spent summers while in college--whet an appetite for gleam. Now, my favorite look is the contrast of "rustic glam" -- rustic things from nature highlighted by a wee bit of shimmer. This style reminds me of my visits to Swarovski, where a creative glint rose out of the rugged cliffs and peaks.

I began to tinker with these materials. For years it was just for myself, and then about ten years ago I began to craft things for sale. Today I use techniques such as Viking weave, wire wrap, wire crochet, basket weave, wire twist, knotted pearls, and free form one-of-a-kind design. I often work with affordable versions of rare stones such as Opals, Rubies or Sapphires.

Making jewelry is calming. There is something zen or meditative about it, which is why I named this shop Meditations.
