Meet Our Artisans
My studio is located at my home in the beautiful mountain town of Blacksburg, Virginia; where I live with my husband and dog.
Each necklace, earring or bracelet is an unique design; inspired by beautiful gemstones found in nature, such as Amethyst, Citrine, Garnet, Lapis, Jade, Turquoise....
And by the ocean ....with freshwater pearls, coral ,and sea glass collected along the beaches of Maine, North Carolina and Florida....
All the findings are of fine copper, sterling silver or 14k gold-filled....many of the clasps have been designed to be worn as the focal point of the piece.... including original designs in PMC or Precious Metal Clay, a clay-like substance that when fired in a kiln becomes .999 silver.
...my copper, including shawl pins, are hand-etched.
My jewelry can be created for any special occasion, especially weddings. For the bride, the mother-of -the-bride, or bridesmaid...a necklace, bracelet or earrings can be custom designed to match the style of your gown and your personality...and, is the perfect gift to remember this day
