Welcome to my bejeweled world, inspired by the magic and mystery of Nature's most precious treasures-glowing, glittering gems and gleaming gold and silver. None other of Gaia's gifts possess such concentrated beauty, value and power. When these raw materials, refined by human hands, are combined in artful designs they become beautiful, even memorable jewels. These pieces may travel through the ages as cherished family heirlooms. Creating wearable designs like these, and knowing they will bring delight and joy every time they're worn, gives me great satisfaction. But my true passion is hunting for and finding a unique gem, pearl, or artifact that commands me to transcend the merely "artful" and create a design where beauty and meaning are forged into a piece with talismanic power for the wearer.
