Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon, and all the mystery inherent in that great celestial body.

"Adornments have been a lifelong passion, and concentrating on Metalsmithing in College enabled me to realize my dream to create in 3 dimensions. We craft our designs in metal, from our drawings and sketches of inspirations from our observations of the world we are walking in. It gives us great pleasure to recreate such fleeting, ephemeral creatures as insects in the lasting solidity of metal. We hope to capture some of that magic which will create a pleasurable experience for the wearer as it does the makers.
