I can't even begin to say how much I love this! The colors and shapes of the stones, the way they work together, the silver chain and the charms...just amazing! I'm beyond thrillled! It's like wearing a warm hug and a cloak of courage all at once! Thank you so very much!
A Tale of Jewels...
I have been hand making jewelry since about 1992. I live in Arizona, so I was exposed to gem and mineral shows (the greatest gem shows take place in Tucson) at an early age.
Growing up in middle of the nowhere Arizona places, by mining towns, only fueled my imagination and love of rocks and stones.
There were actually several mines on our property, which peaked my fascination with sparkly treasures. I had big dreams about outrageous loot discoveries.
I seem to have an inherent need of the hunt for buried treasure, which leads me on day long expeditions to find exquisite bits and bobs to add to my pieces.
Not to mention trips to gem shows to bring home suitcases of beads and stones from all over the world.
After a decade of jewelry shows and private trunk shows, along with folks asking - I plunged and decided to share my jewelry online. November 2012.
Jewelry is always an exciting adventure <3

Refunds and Exchanges
Keep in mind that jewelry stones have inclusions inside the stones, and they are not man made items. There will ba variations in colors, shades and sizes of stones and there will be patinas on some metals. This is a desired quality, not a defect.

There are no refunds or exchanges for buyer's remorse. A purchase is a binding contract, so please shop carefully and responsibly.
