Custom jewelry designs for a gem like you...
The earth's resources are my inspiration for jewelry designs — using recycled and organic materials including gemstones, salvaged copper, sterling silver, sea glass, wood and bone for unique necklaces, earrings and pendants. I use recycled guitar strings to create sliders that complement the pendants and are surprisingly comfortable — and durable!
Here's what one customer had to say about my reproduction of earrings she purchased in Rosarita Beach Mexico in the 90's and subsequently lost:"Thanks again so much, they are my favorite earrings, and I have even gotten compliments on them!
I really love them, they are actually even better than the originals.” Claire, Laguna Niguel, California

All work guaranteed
If your piece breaks, please return it(with as many pieces as possible), and I will repair or replace it free of charge.
I make a conscious effort to use recycled materials as often as possible as well as made in the U.S.A. The booth I use at festivals is 80% recycled, salvaged or second-hand material. Beads and materials are purchased locally, where available, in support of our area businesses. Metals used: Lead-free pewter, sterling silver, lead-free/nickel-free silver plate and silver-fill wire, salvaged copper.
As with all my jewelry, most of my focal points, and even a lot of my beads, are one-of-a-kind. If the piece you like has been sold, I'll do my best to make one similar to it.
