I am a

Metalsmith

High in the Rocky Mountains sits a magical Silversmithing studio filled with crystals, bones, old books, and plants… and a witchy wild-haired artist who creates jewelry and makes friends with strange cats. I draw inspiration from nature, metal, and stone. Through Bead and Bones I am dedicated to creating unique jewelry with crystals from around the world and high quality metals. To learn more about my inspiration and process, check out the video below.

Highest Dedication
to Craftmanship

Bead and Bones features virtually imperceptible solder seams, color-matching joints, and perfectly set stones. Visible solder joints and seams are always a perfect match to the metal— be it jeweler’s brass or sterling silver. Every seam and joint undergoes rigorous cleanup to create perfect mirror finishes. Each piece is professionally constructed and mechanically polished to a high-shine.

Through endless practice, my bezels naturally force any crystal to the ideal 90° angle and all stones are securely seated. With the highest dedication to craftsmanship, you will easily be able to pass down your Bead and Bones jewelry to the next generation.

My Customers

I love you. No really. I seriously love my customers and they know it! Bead and Bones would not exist without my amazing fans and customers. From beginning to end, I am here for you as you have been for me. I believe in the small business experience. You are not just a number or a statistic.

I understand that you are a unique and fierce individual. You will get the customer service that you deserve from me any day, all day, every day. Never be afraid to reach out to me. I am a real human being. ❤

It was when I began to return to my printmaking roots that I began to find my voice.
