About

The joy of working with the beauty of nature to create jewelry

I have always felt a need to make things . As a young child it was mud
pies and doll clothes. Later I learned knitting and drawing. In college
I dabbled in all sorts of craft activities from leather work to textile design.

As a young wife and mother I made baby clothes and tiny sweaters and
created my first garden. As my children grew I painted their portraits in
oil and pastel and we engaged in fun projects like pressed flowers,
tie dye, batik and linoleum cutting. Also at that time I was making and
firing pottery and the kids tried their hands at making pendants and
wall plaques and even wheel throwing.

We sold pottery at shows for about ten years and then I branched out
into jewelry making since my husband was making jewelry in
sterling silver and gemstones and also selling his work.

At that time I was using mostly bone and horn with Trade beads
and a small selection of semi precious gemstones. After discovering
the amazing selection of gemstones available I developed my
current line of jewelry.

I find Etsy to be a wonderful venue for selling with an active
community of friendly and helpful artisans.

My other shop offers some of my favorite possessions acquired over the
years and my handmade wheel thrown pottery.
