Handmade Jewelry and Custom Lapidary in Santa Fe, NM

My mother will be proud to tell you my first word was "jewelry" , so I have always had an interest! My career in the the jewelry industry started in earnest when I began studying for the Graduate Gemologist Diploma at the Gemological Institute of America, which I successfully completed in 2015. I worked for several years at an independent jeweler in Oregon before moving to Santa Fe, NM. I was looking to expand my skill set and branch out into silversmithing, so I signed up for a class at Santa Fe Community College. Their jewelry arts program is fantastic and I was hooked. I continue to be a student at SFCC, always expanding and improving my skills. I also had the opportunity to study with Bob Hazeltine at Santa Fe Jewelers Supply, who encouraged me to take the next step and open my own studio. I am excited to share my work with you and hope you will follow me as I grow. Thanks to much for your interest in my business!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am always open to taking custom orders though processing times may vary. It never hurts to ask, I love a fun new project!

Sizing details

Some pieces can be replicated in any size and others are more limited. Due to the limits of my equipment, one of a kind rings usually have very limited size variance. However, I am always happy to go on the hunt for a similar stone to make a unique piece just inspired by an existing one in your size!

Care instructions

Turquoise is a delicate and porous stone with care needs similar to pearls. To maintain the beauty of your turquoise jewelry,limit its exposure to harsh chemicals, high heat and abrasives. The best way to clean jewelry with any stone is with a soft cloth designed for jewelry cleaning or take your piece to a trusted local jeweler for professional cleaning. Oxidized silver may need to be re-oxidized over time and should never be treated with anti-tarnish/silver polish as the oxidization will be removed. As always, treat your precious jewelry with care for long term enjoyment!

Wholesale availability

I am always open to negotiate wholesale orders and business to business relationships! Just email or message me!

Gift wrapping and packaging

I usually offer free gift wrapping with each order, please just mention it in your order notes! Each piece comes in a cotton padded box and is shipped in a bubble envelope. Gift wrapped items have a holiday neutral wrapping paper and curled bow. Packaging may vary for unusually sized orders. I may suggest additional packaging/padding for particularly delicate pieces.
