Songs of stones
Springing forth like musical notes are these stones, all from Thunder Egg Agate and Common Opal. Curving and dancing like a melody, the hand polished stones swing on sterling silver and copper. Each stone is banded from the 'waterlines' of Thunder Eggs from Central Oregon to bring music to your ears.
Fresh Streams for Fingers
A classic line for your digits, these rings are all about the stones and simple design. Fabricated from heavy Sterling Silver, each gemstone is hand polished and held in a Fine Silver setting. Moss Agate, Thunder Egg, Opal, and Plume Agate are all making their appearances in this body of work.
These Plume Agates from Eastern Oregon are fixed to the beautiful curve of a Sterling Silver and Copper arc. Nestled in the curl, these will hit a great circular plane when swinging from your your ears, just like curls in your hair.
Three stones sitting in a stylized silver stream; One of thick Moss Agate, one with a wisp of Moss in clear Agate, and one of Sterling Silver. Each of the gemstones is set in Fine Silver while the ring band is 18 gauge Sterling Silver for strength. This stream flows around your finger at about a size 8. SOLD More/Purchase
Just the stones in the water and the water being the Finest Silver. Like spin-drift off a wave, earth-tones feather across a clear Oregon Plume Agate. Sterling and Fine Silver pebbles are immersed in the scene around the stone and engraved and hammered texture is treated with patina to create wonderful depth. The back is left open on the stone so the light may shine through. SOLD More/Purchase
A Copper river bank nudges up to a Moss Agate and two Sterling Silver pebbles in a Fine Silver river. The silver river undulates with hammering while the Copper bank is hammered and engraved while the whole piece is treated with a dark (potassium sulfate) patina to bring depth to the terrain changes. This ring is a perfect landscape for a size 7 1/4 finger. More/Purchase
A Fine Silver Wave laps up on a hammered Copper beach. Lying just beyond the tide is a White Chalcedony stone with Sterling Silver pebbles around it. The Oregon native Chalcedony throws a faint spectrum as the pebbles around it throw a shadow of potassium sulphate dark patina. More/Purchase
This Thunder Egg Agate/Pink Opal is small but powerful. Immersed in the Fine Silver stream, and flanked by Sterling Silver pebbles, the peach, amber, and pink tones warm up the scene. The hammered Copper bank adds to the warmth and the 18 gauge Sterling Silver split band adds to the strength. More/Purchase
In these cool colors, the heat of the volcano is hidden. The top stone is Crystal Opal from Australia. Born of the perfect variables to trap water inside the solidifying silicates, rainbows are charged in the volcanic mineraloid. The bottom stone is White Chalcedony occurring with silicates cooling quickly and throwing a gentle spectrum through the stone in different light. Set in Fine silver, the Chalcedony is ‘backless’, letting the light through for ultimate color-play. More/Purchase
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
