During the summer months I personally mine colorful gem crystals in Colorado and other western States. My two Colorado mining claims provide a fair quantity of Peridot and Amethyst for faceting. My latest "digs" have been in New Mexico, Southern California and Arizona. On rare occasions I will purchase uncut crystals not found in the western U.S. from international sources. During the winter months I facet (cut) these crystals at my Castle Rock, Colorado lab into a variety of shapes and sizes, and use them to make one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. Many of the mountings are my own designs which I make using the Lost Wax casting method. I currently produce pendants, earrings, rings, necklaces & bracelets in 14kt gold, 14kt white gold and sterling silver. I offer uncut crystals (collected during mining activities), individual gems that I facet, a variety of mountings for customers to mix and match, and of course high quality fine jewelry in a wide range of prices.
