About turquoise: The name turquoise means "Turkish stone" because the trade route that brought it to Europe came via Turkey. Turquoise is a non-translucent stone of which the most valuable specimens are robin's egg blue or deep-blue azure. It also comes in brown, yellow, and many shades of green. The veins are inclusions from nearby rock fragments or oxides that form during the creation of turquoise.

Turquoise, the gemstone worn by pharaohs and Aztec kings, is probably one of the oldest gemstones known. Native Americans and many of the Indian tribes in Mexico used turquoise for currency, and the stone is still associated with the religious rites of the Navajo. Because it remains fashionable, turquoise is quite highly prized, although it is fairly plentiful.

My jewelry journey actually began with a terribly impulsive decision. While waiting tables, an extremely rude customer prompted me to spontaneously quit my waitress job. In a moment of pure desperation, I decided to start selling my jewelry. From there, I went on to achieve a degree as a goldsmith, giving me the skills needed to make all the beautiful things floating around in my head. There is nothing in the world I would rather do. I find deep, abiding joy in sharing my work with amazing women, who inspire me with their own crazy, beautiful stories. For me, it’s more than jewelry. It’s a moment. It's a communion with nature. A tie to the past. A connection between you and me. Every day I am grateful for that moment of impulsivity. I am grateful for my journey. Every twist. Every valley. Every mountain top.
