This One of a Kind Pendant from the “Aspen Grove” collection is made with California placer gold, 14k yellow and rose gold, carved and engraved Argentium Silver, oxidized. Included is an 18″ oxidized sterling silver chain with 3.5″ extension.

The creative process starts for me by choosing an interesting stone. In certain ways, I feel like a ‘treasure hunter’ but one who likes to reveal the stone’s ‘character’. Nature gives me ‘everything’ in a piece. The perceived drama or beauty just needs to be highlighted through a very selective cut, creating and revealing a composition within the stone. This revealed composition or “nature’s art” has to be supported by the overall composition of the wearable artwork. This is achieved by using sometimes vibrant symmetrical designs or other times with dynamic, asymmetrical compositions that are balanced. Depending on what the overall piece guides me to do, I bring stones together or I place them apart. I think, our vision is circular and not framed in a rectangular or square format. If everything in a piece or in the composition is right, it will resonate within the person who looks at it and wears it.
