+All sterling. Genuine gemstones. Hallmarked. One-of-a-kind. Hand built in the heart of the West.


+About this collection:

The pieces in this collection were inspired by the beauty of a somewhat new, and somewhat rare stone called ivory creek variscite. Variscite is a cousin to turquoise, with a slightly different mineral content. It usually presents in shades of ivory with tints of chocolate, grey, green and blue-green. Ivory creek, however, is found in shades of white, cream and taupe, sometimes with hints of teal, and can contain beautiful veining in shades of charcoal. It takes a very high shine with a smooth, glossy surface. The calming beauty of this stone led me to combine it’s neutral colors with other gemstones, creating a nature imbued collection that invokes a sense of peace and harmony.


+ Details: 

All pieces are slowly and carefully handmade, in my studio in Sheridan, Wyoming. Because of this, each piece is unique and may contain the slight imperfections that you would expect with a handcrafted item. Perfectly imperfect!

+ As with all handmade jewelry, please be mindful to take care of it. It should not be worn in the pool, shower, while cleaning, during strenuous activities such as sports, or in the water.

+ Sun, heat, lotions, sunscreen and chemicals can affect stones negatively. Clean silver (not stones) with a gentle polishing cloth, especially for jewelry (Sunshine polishing cloth is recommended).
