A Little Thing About Stones...

As a young girl, I was always fascinated with rocks, stones , and shells. I was in awe of the beauty of these natural findings. As an adult I wanted to keep that fascination alive by incorporating nature into my pieces. The reason I use silver in my work is because silver has the power to energize stones, enhances patience and perseverance. Gemstones are a part of many ancient cultures often considered to be a symbol of good luck or fortune. For thousands of years they have been made into rings, bracelets, amulets, brooches & pendants.
