After making thousands of men’s wedding bands for my Etsy shops, I am thrilled to be creating everyday jewelry with a twist. Much of my work is asymmetrical, has a dangle or an unexpected accent. Why? Because I think it’s more interesting.
These new pieces showcase a lot of emerald, ruby and tourmaline. More lapidaries are now cutting for “designers” so I can procure precious gemstone material cut into slices, cabochons and other shapes. These unique stones lend themselves to more unusual, rustic mountings, allowing me to design versatile, one-of-a-kind jewelry.
