Core Values

When you buy jewelry, you have a choice.  You may buy based on price. Or buy based on brand. Or buy based on a company's story and values. Or a combination thereof. Here's what I believe in:  

Reducing our carbon footprint.

All the metals I use are refined. I hand-select stones from reputable gem dealers who are members of the American Gem Trade Association, who abide by ethical mining and sourcing practices. I use non-toxic chemicals (i.e. pickle and flux), and I recycle everything that is possible to recycle, even down to the silver dust that is sanded from a piece.


Being animal friendly.

None of my jewelry or studio equipment contains animal products. No leather or feathers. My polishing compounds are vegan (many compounds have animal fat as a by-product).

Supporting "Made in the USA." 

I work with vendors based in the U.S. and American craftspeople. My metal vendors are based in U.S., and they use and sell metal that has been refined in the United States.

In giving back. 

A portion from each online sale goes to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute and for the mountain jewelry, to the National Park Foundation.
Donations are made on an annual basis in the fourth quarter.

Doing the right thing. 

I strive to give exceptional customer service: I have a quick response time and I'll do what I can when things go wrong (i.e. a lost package).  At the end of the day, all I have is my reputation and I want your experience with working with me to be unparalleled.
