Jewelry pieces made by my hand using precious metals, semi-precious and natural stones

I'm driven to make jewelry pieces that emphasize the beautiful and unique stones that are available. Turquoise, Jasper, Labradorite, and Larimar are a few of my favorites.  I am always looking for something different and out of the ordinary. A lot of the stone cutters I buy from are local to me but I have also found lapidary artists while traveling and have used their beautiful stones in my jewelry. I have Montana Agate from Livingstone, Montana, Lepidolite from Colorado, Variscite from Nevada, Turquoise from Kingman, Arizona.  

Whether traveling in Europe, Mexico, Asia or the United States, every place has stones that are unique to that location. Amazonite, Lepedolite, Aquamarine, Turquoise are just a few of the stones found in my home state of Colorado.

I'm always amazed by the natural stones that surround us.  I make all my jewelry in my studio in Longmont, Colorado.  I use sterling silver, argentium, brass, and copper to maximize the beauty of the stone.
