Here Comes Summer!

May 27, 2014

Summer is fast approaching. Life in Pinedale, Wyoming goes from winter to summer in an instant, it was snowing 2 weeks ago and now it's in the 70's, the grass is getting green and already needs to be cut. Our corner of the USA is heaven on Earth in the summertime, wilderness and wildlife abound and the sky is huge and blue.

Hammered Rings ...Customized

Written March 25, 2013

 I am often asked to add some flare to a hammered band with a gemstone so I work with my customers to customize.

This ring is in 14K White Gold and I set the customer's diamond that she had me take out of an older ring.

Locally Sourced Stones

 I love the opportunity to feature regionally mined stones.  I've just posted two new rings to this site; one has a Utah petrified dinosaur bone and the other a Pilot Mountain, Nevada turquoise.

I am endlessly updating my website with new work.  First I design and fabricate the jewelry--- then I photograph it in my special light tent--- then I crop and correct the images--- then I upload the information and images and then...ta-da...it's online!  It can be overwhelming to run my own business and tend to every task, including sweeping and mopping the floors, but it is rewarding because I love my work and it makes me happy when my customers appreciate the jewelry.

Customized Hammered Rings

written - July 03, 2012

I often customize hammered rings to my customers' desires.  Here is one I made this week, 3.5 mm Hammered 14K White Gold ring with four flush set apatite stones.

Also a recent custom order was a hammered ring that tapers in back and has two star-set stones in a slab on top. My customer wanted a one-of-a-kind unusual mother's ring. The two stones are turquoise and lapis lazuli and the ring is sterling silver.
