Deep Dark Winter

Wyoming winter aspen trees.

Wyoming is a great place to experience a true winter and the end of December through the beginning of January always proves to be a deep dark and extremely cold time. Last week we had a spell of 20 below zero weather. But already I can tell the days are just getting a wee bit longer; it's been two weeks since the solstice.

Written July 4, 2014

I've made some fun souvenirs for all of you outdoors fans. Backpackers, hikers, bicyclists, bikers, peak baggers....These medallions are in sterling silver or bronze and I've started with a few choices: Gannett Peak, Fremont Peak, Cirque of the Towers, Wind River Range, Wyoming, and Wyoming Cowgirl. Is there a peak you've climbed and want to remember? I can customize one special for you.

Happy 2014, the number 14 didn't have much significance to me but I heard somebody say that it is doubly lucky because it is the number 7 x 2. Also, my husband said it would be a great year to hike a "14er", one of the peaks in Colorado that is over 14,000 ft, we'll see if we have the chance to make it down there.

Handmade Findings

Written September 24, 2013

To customize the jewelry that I make, I usually handmake the "findings". Findings are what jewelers call clasps, ear wires, pin backs, etc. Basically the hardware of the piece of jewelry.

Custom Rose Gold Ring

Written May 17, 2013

Sometimes a customer wants a certain twist on one of my rings and I can make a custom version for her or him. This is a 6mm 14K Rose Gold band with a satin finish, what is different is that it has a domed look rather than my usual flatter band.
