I’ve been making jewelry like crazy lately to get ready for the holidays. Here are a few designs with prasiolite (green amethyst). #ashevillejewelry #gemstonejewelry #avljewelry #greenamethyst #hammeredjewelry
Labradorite and brass hammered ring. Size 6. #labradoritering #gemstonejewelry #avljewelry #ashevillejewelry #hammeredring
Here is a freshly hammered labradorite pendant. The hammered silver and wire-wrapping are Argentium sterling, which is less prone to tarnish than traditional sterling silver. This smooth chain has an adjustable slide that takes it from a choker to 24″. It’s called a “magic ball” adjustable necklace and has a smooth, square chain. It’s great for seasonal transitions because you can adjust it for any neckline.
This pendant is currently in my studio in Asheville’s River Arts District.

Your specific ideas and desires for jewelry inspire my designs. I love learning about what you want and through collaboration,
empowering you to have it by creating it or referring you to another Asheville, NC area jewelry designer who can make it.
A significant percentage of the jewelry I have sold at shows in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and California have been customized designs. Often, those I make on the spot are variations of designs that I have displayed at that show. Customers pull together ideas from a design or two and their needs or what inspires them. This process of synergy with customers is so enlivening for me! Some of my favorite designs have resulted from this collaborative creative process. I love the end result when customers are delighted to see their idea and try it on and can’t stop looking at themselves in the mirror.
I’ve created a form to streamline this process more for everyone. This quick form helps us both get clear on the custom design you are looking for and takes into account not only size, color and other design features, but also which intention and meaning you want the jewelry to express. After I receive your results, I’ll e-mail you some ideas and photos based on your preferences, including your budget. You can answer the questions as many times as you want with yourself in mind or with a person in mind you’d like to give the gift of intentional jewelry.
