Opals are mesmerizing and one of the only stones that I use that are not from Oregon. This combination of Boulder Opal and Crystal Opal from Australia is brilliant on the green hues, glowing with the blue/turquoise, flashing with pinks and reds, and grounded with Rhyolite matrix (on the boulder). To emulate the complex colors, Silver, Copper, and Jeweler's Brass were hammered and heated until a blended metal background was produced. See More/Purchase
Carnelian Sun over Angel Mountains
Deep Carnelian Plume Agate provides the sun for an Angel Wing White Plume agate mountain range. The bottom stone shows spiky, white plume in the shape of mountains and clouds while the top stone is radiant red Carnelian Plume with some white plume blazing the 'sun spots'. Set in Fine and Sterling Silver, this set is a contemporary statement about the rustic desert beauty from which these stones were born. Learn More
Like the Van Gogh painting, Starry Night, this Marcasite Agate/Jasper contains sparkling metallic stars against a varying midnight blue sky. This painterly stone was set in fine silver with a hammered 'Keum Boo' base to mimic the textures within the mineral landscape. More/Purchase
Clear Mountains, Metal Lakes
This Marcasite Plume Agate throws rust colored spires through clear/cloudy agate with a faint blue tint. Like mountains cloaked in clouds, they spring up from Copper lakes surrounding the stones like a moat. See More/Purchase
Cat's Curvy Path
A Cat's Eye Quartz is poised within the pathway of Sterling Silver and Copper. A meandering line of Sterling ends in prongs that hold the Cat's Eye steadfast in its gaze fixed to copper. The contrast between warmth and cool tones make this piece the perfect neutral, but colorful, accessory. More/Purchase
Oregon has a high desert as hot as deserts get. From that locale, much of the gorgeous Plume Agates are born. These hot Honey Plume Agates in shades of light golden tones were set in Fine Silver and Copper to hold the sweet and the heat. Waves down one side of the copper not only mimic the flow of color within the stones but also command a bold, contemporary silhouette. More/Purchase
This dainty pair of earrings is a tribute to the flowing waters cutting through the high desert that create the birthplace of these stones.

Metals are combined here for some fun mineral shape-play. The center stone is a Redish-Purple-Blue Marcasite Plume Agate that appears to have glitter within when viewed in direct sun. The color variations within the stone already look like effervescent liquid so the hammered copper and silver continue the splashiness. Set in Sterling silver and a 1.8mm greek leather cord, it's a unique piece of wearable art for a statement on its own or layered for your favorite metal mixing. PURCHASE
Full Moon Floating Forest
Floating in a sea of clear agate, Marcasite plumes reach upwards like a suspended forest. The gem is set in Fine and Sterling Silver with an open back so the stone is backlit. A White Opal full moon smiles a rainbow of colors down on the sparking trees.
These stones are so intricately painted by nature, they get more impressive the closer you get. White Plume dances in circles set into Shibuishi for contrast. The bottom stone swirls in a psychedelic blending of warm hues and sparking Quartz Druzy from within that would make a hippy lightshow jealous. If you'd love to rock this on a long 'tunic length' setting check out Available Necklaces.
Plumes of Fire and Ice
The top stone is amber toned Plume Agate with red linear plumes and a subtle cloud of marcasite on top that is tinted purple. This is mounted upon Shibuishi, the copper and silver alloy that they would decorate samurai swords with. The drop stone is Plume Agate with a deep Druzy Quartz window, both fire and ice. This piece is hung on a choker length, chunky black Greek Leather Cord. If you'd like to rock this (like I have a few times, couldn't help myself) hit Available Necklaces.
