I started designing in 2003, took some classes and spent four years honing my skills, and then started selling in Art/Craft Shows in 2007. I still exhibit in shows, so I pretty much eat, sleep and dream in jewelry. The organic beauty of a natural stone still amazes me after all these years; truly natures works of art. To capture that essence in a pendant or necklace is a wonderful job. My inspirations come from the simplest of objects; the colors in a beautiful rug or in a blouse. Color, texture and shape come together to create a wearable piece of art. Thank you for browsing through my shop. I hope you find something that really, "Speaks to you".

I ship all products through the USPS with a tracking number. Seller will notify Buyer date product shipped. Shipping fees to be paid by Buyer and are determined by the USPS rates. No rush orders. No international orders.

Refund & Exchange Policy

Any product must be returned in original packaging and within ten days from shipping date (date on USPS receipt) for refunds. No returns on damaged product. No exchanges.

Other Policies

Please contact Seller at for custom orders. Because many of my items are one-of-a-kind, Seller will determine price and lead time of item according to product availability and construction time. All hand wrapped pieces are done with Argentium Sterling Silver wire which helps to inhibit tarnishing. All Sterling Silver will tarnish when it comes in constant contact with oils on skin, acidic skin, body and hand creams, perfume and hair spray. I include an anti-tarnish strip with Sterling Silver pieces and keeping your piece in a closed baggie with the anti-tarnish strip will keep it looking bright for a long time.
