Growing up in Gaylord, Michigan, I can remember collecting stones from all over Northern Michigan. I have aways loved collecting stones, they were like little treasures to me. My earliest memories were of my family taking my Grandma Johnson to Whitefish Point on Lake Superior to collect stones. We would be there all day, overcoming the sting of the black flies that tried to carry us away!
Not everyone shares my enthusiasm for rough stones, so I taught myself lapidary and silversmithing skills so others could see the beauty of my little treasures too. This is my unique way of contributing to the creative forces of the Universe and I hope you can appreciate my stones and jewelry and love them as much as I do!
