Gemstone & Bead Jewelry
I'm captivated by the complex patterns, inclusions, and natural beauty found in rare and unusual materials like fossilized coral, petrified wood, bone, lava, pearls, nuts, and shells. I cut and carve some of the materials myself, and also work with small-family owned mines and stone cutters in the United States and Brazil. Quartz, ocean jasper, chalcedony, lapis, beryl emerald, and turquoise are among my favorite stones to work with. Featuring graceful strands and dangling charms, sinuous beaded necklaces, and stone pendants perfect for layering.
