Welcome to our store, Treefrog & Hedgehog Originals. This site is run together by Lou and Ness, a husband and wife team. Lou is a designer and creator of a variety of unique, handmade semiprecious stone jewelry including bracelets, pendants, and earrings. Lou got his start making jewelry because of his love of the wide variety of semiprecious stones. He first nurtured his love as a "rock hound" as a kid, when he would collect various rocks and quartz crystals while hiking with his father. He rekindled his love of semiprecious stones as an adult, and discovered that he had a talent for creating beautiful handmade jewelry. This talent, coupled with a creative eye for blending colors and patterns, is represented in the unique works in our shop. He also believes the beauty held within each stone holds benefits that people have been drawn to since the dawn of time, whether it is in the form of power, healing, spirituality, or mysticism. Ness is a nature lover, and loved taking pictures as a kid, although most of the pictures in those days were of her cat! Always being an artistic person, she has dabbled in other mediums, including sketching, charcoal drawing, counted cross stitch, and crocheting (some of these projects may make an appearance at the shop here from time to time!), but has recently come back around to photography as a way to express herself. She still loves capturing the beautiful images that nature has to offer, leading to the collection she has here today. Her photographs will make an excellent decoration in any home or office, bringing a peaceful moment to any room. You can view her more extensive photo gallery at Enjoy what we have to offer, and visit frequently to see whats new!
