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.

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.

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!
