We’re a husband and wife team of 52 yrs who’ve been lucky enough to find common passions to work together on. Beginning with a love of minerals, fossils and historical artifacts, we became obsessed with cutting and polishing gemstones from rough material. We needed to be able to set our stones, minerals specimens, fossils and ancient coins and artifacts in wearable jewelry. So we traded lapidary lessons for silversmithing lessons and began to show and sell our jewelry in 1974. In 1976 we had our first show and have been supported by our craft ever since then. Our work and skills have developed over the years, constantly adding new techniques and experiences. We’ve been fortunate that we’ve been able to gain a loyal following of collectors who can’t wait to see our “latest piece”, so we have to keep breaking new ground to keep both their and our interest.
