I am mesmerized by the beauty of rocks and gems and the hidden treasures found inside relatively innocuous dull stones. I am equally intrigued with the metaphysical and healing properties associated with such stones and their use as personal totems, as well as wearable art. Each work starts with a rough cut and then polished stone or semi precious gemstone. Many of these works incorporate indigenous or tribal cultures adopt names and traits associated with the stones. Each handcrafted piece is a personal talisman.
