My love for all things that 'stir the creative juices' started me on this venture of designing and making jewelry and I am fortunate to have this type of escape. I love interior design and now this...nothing compares to having something in your life that honors your skills and ignites your passion.
I am committed to offering the best in quality, workmanship and material in my pieces. In my mind, photos don't do them justice. I challenge you to examine and feel each one. Try to envision how it 'seals' the look you are seeking.
My turquoise is mined in a region called Zhuxi, which accounts for it's beautiful matrix and vibrant, unique, coloring. Most of my sterling coordinates are Shiana Silver, a pure, fine (.999) silver that is hand-made by Karen Hill Tribe Villagers. In most cases, the 'craft' of these mountain-living villagers is the mainstay of their families. The Karen (Kariang) People have long been noted for their excellence in silversmithing and that can be seen in their pieces.
