Looking, playing and designing with beautiful gemstones has cured me of my insatiable jewelry collecting habit. I no longer feel the need to own and hoard jewelry. I now hoard gemstones! There's no stopping me when I see something I love...you know the feeling...it's mine no matter what.

Spring Collection - Bronze Rutilated Quartz Ring
The Photo shoot has been delayed so I'm posting another ring. This is a gorgeous reddish bronze hair rutilated quartz in a simple cut. It was not intended for a ring I'm sure but I just had to. This is a GOOD SIZE ring and not for the timid. The band is tilt-able and can also be stringed on a sterling chain and worn as a necklace.
Again, I have to let you know that certain styles go fast when the collection is released so sign up for the newsletter for first dibs. I hate to see disappointed customers.
This is another new ring in the upcoming spring collection. This is a rough piece of quartz embedded with tourmaline. The back was left open for light to pass through. I never know how a piece would turn out exactly. I go in with an idea and an fuzzy image of the finished product and see how things work out, which is the main excitement for me. I love how this one turned out.
Newsletter gets you notification of Spring Collection release.
he Spring Collection is pretty much finished though I have more interesting materials that have not been used yet. Maybe I should save them for the next collection since this collection is already full of interesting items. One of my main areas that needs discipline is in keeping the collection at a manageable and reasonable number of pieces. Sometimes it's not good to just indulge one's whim.
This is one of the rings I'll have in the new collection. The lemon quartz is a unique shape. It is both modern and classic. It reminds me of a graphic drawing of a traditional diamond shape.
