I am drawn to a number of precious and semi-precious colored stones, mostly for their unique and beautiful natural color and/or inclusions. Inclusions should not be seen as flaws, but as proof of nature’s hand in creating an element of beauty. Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Opal, Tourmaline, and Moonstone all appear regularly in my collection, and are chosen according to their specific optical appeal.
Most of the stones that I use are cut from the rough to my specifications. Jewelry made with colored stones truly can become a modern amulet, or talisman for the wearer.
Colored stones have been sought after the world over for reasons both mystical and spiritual, with multitudes of meaning associated with each different stone. Healing properties, as well as the purported power possessed by specific gemstones, lead some to seek out a particular stone. Please contact us if you should desire a custom gemstone piece.
