Vintage bead and semi-precious stone jewelry
I’ve been making jewelry and fascinated with stones since I was a child. I’ve had shows in New York, Los Angeles, and sold in haute couture boutiques in major cities. The parts are all vintage and have all been gathered over the past 20-30 years from extensive travel (China, Afghanistan, India, Europe and Asia), flea markets and auctions. I use Victorian era pieces, beads and parts from the 1920′s – 1940′s and pieces that I feel have mythic, symbolic and talismanic qualities. The semi-precious stones are chosen with regard to the lore and properties of each type of stone. Each piece is hand knotted with great care and good wishes for the wearer. I do the knotting as a meditation, and my intention with my jewelry is to create wearable touchstones, reminders of beauty, strength, brilliance and joy.
