My interest in rocks and stones started at a very young age. This interest was mostly in seeing how far I could throw a stone or how many times I could skip a rock. Fortunately those interests have grown and evolved as time passed. Today my interest is mainly in exploring the beauty of natural stones, minerals, and gems and highlighting that beauty in original one of a kind handcrafted artisan jewelry. I now cut many of my own cabochons by hand. Many different techniques of jewelry construction are used to enhance the semi-precious stones which are the foundation of each of my creations. My style is continually evolving, and I am currently working with new techniques and refining the techniques I currently use.
