About the artist

My family and I have enjoyed rock hunting for the past 25 years. Four years ago my husband and I acquired used lapidary equipment and began designing jewelry, beads, and buttons.

There are several processes the rock goes through before it is complete. This includes cutting, shaping, drilling, grinding, sanding, and buffing. With a 14 diamond saw blade I cut a slab off the rock and examine it, identifying interesting patterns and colors. With this in mind I begin shaping the stone. The transformation from rough rock to a finished piece always fascinates me.
