Pieces in this collection feature unique, one-of-a-kind gemstones that set them apart from any other piece of jewelry. I design each piece around the stone and it's earth-given qualities. I often mimic the patterns and imagery in the stone with my metal work or color match it with golds and other stones. This is some of my most energetic and intuitive work!
This mint onyx seems to glow! If you're looking for an everyday necklace that radiates, you've found it.
The hammered halo around the stone supplies you with a unique sparkle that shines like diamonds and will stay radiant. Light chases around the stone and adds just enough punch, but doesn't steal the show from this glowing onyx beauty. As an added bonus, you can wear this necklace two ways! There is no back or front! One side has a more traditional looking cut with table and all, but then the other side is softly rounded with many facets!
Moss agate is one of my favorite gemstones. This one stands out because it only has a pinch and a sprinkle of "moss" amidst the wonderfully captivating white crystal druzy that has been polished into a comfortable and elegant pear shaped cabochon. Most pears are set with the point at north, giving it a tear drop look, but I thought this stone wanted a little edge, so I tipped the scales a little and set it pointing down, completely altering the mood.
To further drive the point home, I added a few thick links of chain to the bail so it can swing like a little pendulum. The diamond cut cable chain cuts the light and throws it back in a dazzling glint that seems to sharpen this necklace's edge.
Wear this necklace and remember that it only takes a little change in direction to truly have a profound effect.
Lobster Clasp at Back With 2 Jump Ring Options for Total Length
To me, this necklace balances dainty sparkle with statement piece.
In the summer, the branch will flicker with summer memories of climbing trees and building campfires. In the winter, your neck will sparkle with the sleek imagery of a delicate but strong winter branch with pops of icy glimmer.
There is an extra jump ring at the back so you can have the right adjustment for the right ensemble. Wear this natural beauty with a scoop or open neckline, or on top of a solid colored, high neckline to really show it off!
This design is strong and can be worn every day! And even better, you don't have to chase the clasp around your neck all day, due to the design, it will always rest at the back of your neck!
You can't go wrong with a circle necklace. This one has its own special flare. The diamond takes the show and has the main focus, but the orbit supports with organic, hammered sparkle. There's plenty of pendants with a halo of diamonds going around. Wear this necklace and make them do a double take to see the off the beaten path hammered halo catch and dazzle the light.
This pendant is designed so that the pendant is always in the front, and the clasp is always in the back, so no more chasing the clasp around your neck all day!
20mm x 15mm Oval Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite Oval Cabachons
Lever Back Earrings
"Mimic Set" Prongs
Inventively set in freeform prongs that mimic the natural, earth-given patterns and markings in the gemstones, these earrings empower the wearer with a subtle burst of "I haven't seen this before."
Each earring weighs under 3.5 grams, making them comfortable to wear all day. They also have an everyday wearable size that almost lets them slip in past the radar, but upon closer examination, the viewer is rewarded with the realization that the prongs holding the stone in are not your typical snooze-fest only for function, but they are instead an exciting design element of the piece!
Alizarin crimson is one of my favorite paints to use. It is unlike most reds in that it is cool instead of warm. If you are looking for a sweet and subtle way to wear red, these earrings are the ticket! They also feature ochre yellows, and brown earthy violets. Any skin tone can pull these babies off! The size gives them admittance into every day wear, but the surprise is that the whimsical nature of the setting places them into the realm of self expression and natural wonder.
Sifting through gemstones can be just like cloud watching. I can't help but to see delicate, soft flower petals in this agate slice. Unlike a real flower, though, this baby is built to not wilt!
I love the way the rose gold can pop so vibrantly with the touch of a hammer and a juxtaposition to blackened silver. The bright white and the soft black emanate a feeling of delicate strength and feminine abundance. The natural beauty of this stone doesn't need much to make a whimsical expression.
The playfulness of the handcrafted links breaks up the chain and keeps things eccentric. This flower isn't a set of perfect little petals. Instead, it embraces the beauty in natural occurrences, so I couldn't have a perfect little chain to fasten it around your neck. I chose to break it up with fun, captivating elements.
Get this necklace for yourself or someone you love and let it be a reminder that life isn't perfect, and that's what makes it beautiful!
Light, bubbly, elegant and sparkly. You don't even have to be a "pink girl" to love how this necklace makes you feel.
The really distinct thing about this gemstone is the layers of strawberry inclusions. There is somehow so much depth in this 4mm thick stone and the best part - it's all natural! I adore the layers of pretty, soft pinks, so I wanted to play it up in the character of how I set it.
To make it even lighter and airy, I stationed delicate, but strong, hammered circles as part of the chain. This breaks up the otherwise straight and predictable line of the chain and keeps the piece spirited and whimsical. The ideas are simple, but natural and fit with the stone.
Wear this necklace as a reminder of your inner beauty, complexity and strength. The light will glint and run circles around your neck when you wear it and the depth of the stone will draw you in and remind you of the beautiful complexity that is already inside you, bubbling out. There is not another one like it.
A comfortable, one-of-a kind statement ring - FOUND! I've set these three gorgeous gemstones in snug and cozy mountings and tapered the back of the ring to make it easy to wear and use your hands in a way that many "statement rings" have neglected.
This ring is all about harmony in differences. I was drawn to the flecks of indigo, blue, and violet in the anemone and loved the playful duality of it next to the yellow and orange range in the friendly little fossil. To really draw out the violet of the fossilized sand dollar, I accompanied it with yellow gold set iolite.
A cool surprise was in store for me after I created this ring! I wanted to learn more about iolite and was pleasantly surprised to learn that iolite is a special stone. It is highly pleochroic, meaning that its crystalline structure is such that from different angles it can appear dark indigo/violet or almost colorless to yellow/grey. So, the duality I was seeking to exploit in this gemstone ring was an innate and strong quality of the very stone itself! I love it when things like this happen. I hope you do, too!
This ring can steal the show on your hand all by itself, but I also think you can pair it with some simple bands on other fingers. The colors are subtle enough to be worn with any other colors. This is a modern day form of a statement ring... the everyday statement ring.
