Custom-crafted jewelry designed for a gem like you...

...Handmade jewelry reflecting my love of the earth by creating one-of-a-kind designs using natural resources, found items and recycled material including salvaged copper fabricated into unique designs, sterling silver recycled from scraps, seaglass, tumbled glass, wood, bone and, of course, gemstones – many found in the mountains of North Carolina.

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.
