Geologist Turned Lapidary Artist/Jewelry Maker

Hello to all the classy broads! I am a self-taught jewelry artist with a love for fun, affordable jewelry. All of my pieces are handmade by me, and most of my jewelry is made with sterling silver and gemstones.
I am a geologist by training, and I began making beaded jewelry as a hobby in 2007. I enjoyed making one-of-a-kind pieces and incorporating unique and interesting stones in my designs.
Soon after I began beading, I inherited my grandfather’s lapidary equipment. I learned to hand- cut and polish stones and wanted to incorporate them into my jewelry pieces. I purchased tools for a home studio and started to learn basic metalsmithing techniques.
I love being able to merge my life-long love of stones with my new-found love of lapidary and jewelry arts.
