Rustic explorations, organic intentions, and soulful meanderings...
Hello, My name is Ace and I love to play with fire....
...and I love to design wildly different, eclectic creations to celebrate the wildness in your restless and adventurous spirit. That is how this all began, you know: a woman, a road, a sense of adventure, and a yearning for discovery. Having grown up on a farm in Oklahoma, my passion for the outdoors started early, a wild child running in the fields of wheat, riding my horse bareback through the grasslands. When the opportunity struck to hit the road and explore the rest of the country, I loaded my car with a few necessities (a tent, a Nikon, a change of clothes), and hit the road I did. Expansive landscapes were revealed: mountains, canyons, mesas, ocean, deserts, rivers, beauty never experienced before. I became breathless, insatiable. My world expanded from flat to voluptuous, from passive to dynamic. For years, I camped and explored and hiked and rafted and howled at the moon and camped some more. Being passionate about sharing with others my discovery of this astounding beauty of the U.S. landscape, especially the rugged and raggedy west, I guided and drove tours for Green Tortoise, an adventure travel company, travelling across the United States, Mexico, and Central America in vintage 1956 tour buses.
But really, what the heck does this have to do with jewelry? All this exploration was a search for experience and authenticity. Although I lived life creatively, I did not settle down to explore creating art until my early forties, when I picked up a torch, melted the heck out of some copper, played with bits of silver, and a new expression of passion was discovered.
My work does not imply adventure. My work is adventure. It is about pushing limits, peeking around the next bend, peering towards the horizon. It is about bouncing in a truck on a dusty, wash-boarded back road to anywhere. It is about grit and rust and edginess and messy hair and embracing the art of imperfection. It is about being a little afraid of the darkness, but knowing the moon can be there to light the way. It is about not only discovering yourself, but becoming yourself.
Are you ready? Ready to join me on this exquisite and jagged journey? Let's hit the road!
oh, and as I am always trying to keep things interesting, you know how folks used to threaten to run away and join the circus... I actually did.

Custom orders: I will work very closely with you to create your custom order to your liking. There are no refunds for custom work. Asking for any changes on an existing piece, to resize a ring or lengthening or shortening a chain, for example, turns it into a custom order.
Please be as certain as you can about your size when ordering bracelets and rings. If you have any questions about sizing, don't hesitate to contact me and I can talk you through it as best as I can.
Colorado residents will need to pay a 2.9% sales tax, which will be calculated at checkout..
*****INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please, please be aware that the customs process may easily delay a shipment by two to four weeks. Any VAT, import taxes or other customs fees will be the responsibility of the buyer (that's you, m'dear). Please know that these are beyond my control.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of my work goes through a patina/oxidation process to create a rustic, weathered, well worn piece. Oxidation affects merely the surface of the metal, and can be prone to wearing off, or, better yet, continuing to oxidize. I choose not to seal my patinas because I prefer not to add a chemical element that may affect the skin. Initially, some darkness may wear away onto the skin as the piece warms up to you.
Do not use jewelry cleaner on your purchase, or you will end up with a bright shiny piece, which is the antithesis of what I am trying to create!
