FINE JEWELRY

My eye-catching fine jewelry pieces are designed around gemstones that I cut myself. Every stone or combination of stones inspires me to showcase their unique characteristics in 14 karat gold and/or sterling silver. Whether it’s a pendant, earrings or ring, gemstones are always the “star” of the piece.

DESIGNER GEMSTONES

Gemstones are beautiful in and of themselves but to make them truly one of a kind I often carve lines and grooves into the gems. Stones with these elements are often referred to as fantasy cuts. I also play with creating intricate faceting patterns to add visual appeal. The end result of all this is extra brilliance and texture in what I like to call “designer” gemstones.

I work with a range of gemstones, including amethyst, citrine, tourmaline, garnet, blue topaz, ametrine, sapphire and tanzanite, as well as opal, onyx, lapis, sugilite and fossilized dinosaur bone. 

While creating designer gemstones and fine hand-crafted jewelry is a labor of love for me, both jewelry and gemstones are for sale.
