Stone and Silver: Druzy Pendant
Grey and white druzy is sent with silver prongs and utilizes silver remnants. The pendant is accented with an 8mm facet cut amethyst.

As I approached the end of my corporate career, I sought a creative outlet that would be meaningful and productive. I took my first jewelry class in 2017 and loved everything about it. While smithing requires specific techniques and methods there is also room for creativity and coloring outside the lines. Experimenting was new to me. I’m very much a rule follower and being able to try something that isn’t a proven practice was a little intimidating. I continue to struggle with that but continue to evolve. I like extremes. To me, a minimalist silver wire bracelet is as enticing as an organic cuff with layers of metal and stones. I’ve also recently started offering workshops in my studio. Workshops are typically 2 to 3 hours and participants leave with completed works of art.
