I am inspired by the beauty I find in Natural Gemstones and the gorgeous array of colors in which they can be found. My designs are made using unique stones from all over the world. It is the best feeling when I come across that perfect stone . Every piece of jewelry is created by me in my studio, which is in our Tudor style cottage home. Nature is colorful, calming, wondrous, fantastic, and unbelievably beautiful. My designs are created with inspiration found in the beauty of the world around me. Why the shop name Flying Art Garden? From a young age, I have always found butterflies, birds, bees, and other winged wildlife fascinating and I began creating my first jewelry designs at age 10. Today, I incorporate bright colors, Vintage & whimsical details, and fanciful touches into each piece I create. As always, color reigns supreme! My designs are filled with rich colors, textures and organic shapes. I favor imperfect stones in their raw form with irregular shapes and colors. I use a variety of natural materials. Wood, shells, amethyst, quartz, agate, citrine, obsidian, pyrite and garnet are only a few of my favorites. I combine natural stones with gold and rose gold, silver, copper and brass for a look that unites the beauty of nature with the glamour and sophistication of high fashion.
