I have always had a passion for jewelry, it was there as I grew up. I studied design at the Art Institute but found upon graduation that I was drawn to a career in Jewelry. When I shop I always stop to look at the gemstones and see how things are made and enjoy another artist’s take on making jewelry. I find that gemstones just call my name and on a day when I need to feel better I can work with my gemstones and find that I have forgotten what it is that was bothering me. Come and hang out with me as I work towards my graduate gemologist certification. I welcome conversation on your feelings about the stones as well as the market in general. I enjoy conversations on both the metaphysical side as well as the pure gemological side.
