I find the act of taking a piece of silver or clay and transforming it into wearable art to be incredibly fulfilling, especially when I receive the wonderful comments from my buyers telling me how happy it makes them to wear my pieces.

A pretty square ceramic pendant with a pattern inspired by Italian architecture. Approximately 1 1/2 inch across with a single hole at the top. Glazed in a beautiful rich avocado green.

My goal is to make distinctive, beautiful jewelry that will complement the wearer as well as remain stylish indefinitely. I pride myself on my attention to detail and the quality of the materials I choose.

A pair of Earthenwood Studios charms, a cute little blue bird and her nest match beautifully with a bright aqua cut out window pendant from Chinook Jewelry Designs. The charms are under 1 inch each and the pendant measures 1 1/2 inches across. This combination was featured in Stringing Magazine Spring 2008 in a terrific project, a necklace by Michelle Mach. The little nest fits as a dangle within the window and the bird can hang from one of the three accent holes along the bottom of the pendant.

A ceramic pendant embossed with a design inspired by saris from India then glazed in a gorgeous magenta berry shade. The pendant measures about 1 1/4 inches across. As my glazes react differently each time I fire something in my kiln, each pendant has unique features. These pendants look wonderful on leather, suede, cord or in wire wrapped designs!

If you see something you like but would prefer it in a different color, shape, stone, or have seen a style somewhere else that you have in mind, just ask! I would be happy to work with you to create something to fit your vision.
