Australian Boulder Opals and unique mixed metal jewelry are two of my favorite materials to create unusual pieces!
But first a bit of history ...
I have been creating jewelry since the late 80's starting with a design my mom had a dream about!
She sourced and created a textile fiber necklace that featured beautiful seashells. (Side note here, 'sourcing' in those pre-computer days meant yellow pages and printed books with lists of yarn and bead stores!)
Our work was sold through-out the midwest at arts and craft shows. We evolved into adding beads naturally moving towards amazing semi-precious stone beads and pendants. I admired silver jewelry so I taught myself metalsmithing from books. My mother retired but I continued making and selling jewelry.
I will be tapping some of those special stones and beads she collected over the years on this site!
My metalwork pieces lean toward mixed metals and earthy textures.
You will find unusual one of a kind or limited edition jewelry that reflects a love for exploring shapes and textures influenced by the decades I have passed through and the Western landscape I live in.
Let your artistic style show by choosing pieces that resonate with your heart.
Wearing what you love is the perfect way to start each day whether you are working, playing or retired!
Art is for everyone and jewelry is your chance to share a small bit with others.
The website is a work in progress (Facebook & Pinterest are not hooked up correctly yet) and I will eventually add everything I make. That will include boulder opal pendants, semi-precious stone pendants on adjustable cords, cuff bracelets, wrap rings, copper salt spoons and other new creations. Please let me know if a page isn't working correctly or if you have any questions.
Any purchases will be handled with Covid 19 precautions in mind.
Thanks so much for reading through to the end of this!
