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.

Happy New Year!

Written January 5, 2013

 I have taken a small break from the jewelry making to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with my family and friends.  However I am back in town and will be diving right back into the jewelry bench.  Right before I left for the holiays I made a beautiful turquoise bracelet with 6 strands of Nevada mined turquoise with a sterling silver clasp that I recently designed.  I will be offering more bracelets with this clasp with various gemstones.

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.
