I learned to do lapidary work and silver smithing in high school in the late 70's. In the mid 80's I strung turquoise for an indian jewerly store in Old Town Scottsdale for one dollar a strand! Big bucks! Stringing the same thing over and over just was not fulfilling for me, so I decided then and there, if I ever created jewelry for a living, I would make ONE OF A KIND ONLY! Since 2001, I've been doing just that. I've traveled North America, from Toronto to Miami, NYC to Maui, selling my jewelry. Thousands of pieces have been sold; below are just a few of those pieces.
