A Love Affair With Organic Materials
My work is material driven-- I love the look and feel of gems right out of the earth and seas
I have worked for over 30 years with miners, stone cutters, and pearl grower to supply me with Fair Trade, all natural, and untreated gemstones that are unique and durable. Whether it is turquoise from a closed mine in Nevada, cultured pearls from the Sea of Cortes, or Brazilian Carnelian, they know to share only the very best and most unique with me.
