Sticks &...

The elements have an amazing ability to turn a plain old stick into something structural, beautiful and stunning.  I use a water based sealer to bring out details and give my wood pieces some stability.

HRC028

Stones &...

The stones and other pieces are found in a natural, pendant shape/state.  I stabilize some, such as the clay and calcite, with resin (which may also enhance the piece's natural beauty).

Beads & Findings...

Glass & hematite beads, leather cords & tassels - I try to use as many natural elements for my jewelry as possible.

HRC NM Haul

Rock Hounding Missions

Sometimes my rockhounding takes me to different states.  This great haul was from a guided tour to New Mexico!

Tuscon Gem & Mineral Show

I cannot begin to tell you how much fun this annual trek is for me.  I get to hang with people who make jewelry for almost a week.  I leave inspired, with tons of great inventory, and a lot less $$!

Check out my work!

Pendants and chokers, chains or leather, tassels and beads - the possibilities are endless!
