I am often drawn to unusual stones and interesting fossils, usually with a story, and beautiful pearls with fabulous luster or unusual shapes as well, so of course this is what you will often see in my work!
The stones I use in my work come from various sources. Sometimes we have purchased beautifully cut and polished stones from several different reputable resources and we have also purchased slabs and rough material to cut and polish our own stones in our new Lapidary Studio. Once, I spotted a really interesting beach stone in the parking lot before getting to the actual beach, so that became one of my favorite rings!
Going forward you may see stones I had in my assortment or new specimens we have cut and polished ourselves from our collection of rough material. I am very excited to have this wonderful design opportunity available to me and will do my best to keep you enthralled with our new designs!
