Natural Gemstone Jewelry, 108 Bead Mala Necklace, Stack Bracelets and more....
A word on pricing: prices vary according to cost, rarity and quality of the gemstone crystals used in each piece. I buy the best I can find at affordable prices to create beautiful crystal gemstone jewelry for you to enjoy. Gemstones change over time as old mines are depleted and new mines are found. For over 30 years I have watched these changes and I only choose beautiful genuine crystal gemstones of good quality.
My journey as a jewelry artist began many years ago and has evolved over time with influences from nature used to make my own components for my designs in various mediums. My talisman and mala jewelry is all about connection to nature...the energy and beauty within the mountains, lakes/rivers and forests.
I try to emulate the subtle color shifts of florals and greenery in my mala and jewelry designs as well.
My intention is to make jewelry and malas that you find beautiful to look at as well as make you feel beautiful to wear. I want you to feel good wearing it and want it to be a source of beauty in your life.

I do my best to use only quality metal in my work: sterling silver, solid brass, solid copper, solid pewter, etc. I use very little gold-filled because of the inhibitive prices of gold components. If a piece has a plated piece I state that it is (some charms, vintage).*
Please note: I use only Genuine Natural Gemstones. All orders are handcrafted and shipped from our smoke-free Smoky Mountain based studio.

For me my gemstone talisman jewelry is all about connection to nature...the energy and beauty within the mountains, lakes/rivers and forests. In this increasingly hectic, manufactured lifestyle: I find I need a link to the timeless peace of natural stone, light, tree, earth, water. There is a beauty and a healing power in the serenity of nature when I sit or stroll through and listen. My crystal jewelry is a connection to nature's energy that brings me peace and joy to work with.
I have always felt a connection to the earth and nature. My bond to nature began as a child in upstate New York with it’s rich green and soft brown woodlands, peaceful gentle streams and rocky bottom glacier-made lakes. This is my love so I try to only use natural materials. My focus is on simple, natural supplies: natural gemstones, found and curated talismans, natural leather cord, solid copper/sterling silver/gold-filled wire and components.
Almost all metals tarnish naturally which I personally love and but it can be rectified with a polishing cloth if desired.
Please note that when I use vintage metal findings & components in my designs, some natural tarnish, patina & wear is present that adds to their beautifully unique character.
Natural inclusions are within certain gemstones but this is not indicative of damage rather is a characteristic of natural crystals.

CARE & REPAIR
I care deeply about the quality of my work and want you to be very happy with it.
I do everything I can to make my pieces as solid and durable as possible.
Should a piece break in the course of everyday wear I will do my best to repair it...but do be aware that many components are unique and irreplaceable but could be changed out for a different piece.
Do not leave your gemstones in direct sunlight as they may fade or become brittle.
Keep your jewelry dry and remove jewelry before bathing or swimming.
*All silver, brass and copper can be brightened with a jewelry polishing cloth if desired. I use Sunshine Polishing Cloths. Do not get polish on matte beads as they will absorb the polish.

If you have any questions at all, please ask!
Thanks and blessings,

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, to discover that I had not lived.

I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and to be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion."

My Joy

My journey as a jewelry artist began over 20 years ago and has evolved over time. I use many techniques and mediums in my work that I combine to make a finished piece. Influences and colors from Nature are the inspiration for my designs in: gemstone crystals, glass blowing, polymer clay, precious metal clay (PMC), and etched metals. Found objects (feathers, stones), talismans from afar, metal work, my lampwork beads, wire working, seed bead work and high quality gemstone crystals all join together to make the whole. My goal in my creations is to express the beauty of the world around us and share joy and good energy.

My love of nature began in upstate New York with it’s rich green and soft brown woodlands, peaceful gentle streams and crisp, rocky bottom glacier-made lakes. I roamed in the green places behind the house where I grew up collecting unique rocks and stones, odd shaped or colored sticks, found feathers, and of course searching for old arrow heads.
The rustling of the trees overhead as the wind played in their branches, bird calls in the distance all mesmerized me, lulled me with earth's soft voice, to a place of peace. The greens and browns of the soft mossy places called to me: it's where I found joy, serenity, beauty. I hope to express these things through my work.

When creating a piece I gather components and I will begin to see the materials that will work for my inspiration. I never make drawings (I don't draw...lol) or plan things out other than gathering materials: colors, textures and sizes of components.
The gemstone's weight and texture, the impressions I get from colors, appearance, gemstone's energy, the warmth of copper/patinaed silver components all join to mold into the project.
The art of creating jewelry is often a delicate and subtle process, one in which the slightest alteration in a color, surface or form can change the appearance of a piece entirely.
~The price reflects not only the materials used, but also the labor and skill that goes into making each part to create my pieces.
~ would you like a matching earrings, necklace, a ring, or a bracelet perhaps? Please contact me through etsy convo for special request.
~ I take great care in designing each piece of my jewelry, paying close attention to the smallest of details until each is piece is tiny work of art.
