At a young age I had a vision and insight. I decided that I would become a part of “the solution”. As time went on, my dreams faded and I chose to follow the easier path. Some time ago I woke to find this comfortable little space I made for myself had changed along with the world we all share. Circumstance, not choice, forced me to alter my direction. I began by doing something I really love. Working with beach stones seemed a small step in the right direction. After three years of trial and error, I created my own system of drilling, engraving and designing jewelry.
I have lived on Cape Cod for 25 years and have always had an insatiable love of the sea. I seldom return home without a pocket full of stones. Several years ago my connection with stones advanced to a new level. Harvesting Cape Code Beach Stones has become my passion. I collect my stones from the beaches of Provincetown to the South Shore of Boston. My designs transform them from a place in the waves to a new palette of silver and leather. I do not tumble them or alter them in any way other than drilling a hole or an occassional engraving. Mother Nature provides the smoothing and polishing. Each of my pieces is unique to itself and no two stones are ever identical.
