Welcome to the world of art jewelry. I have been the designer and owner of Rock Place Originals for over 25 years showcasing the natural beauty of gemstones and fossils in my work. Using basic elements of design, I feel that my jewelry captures the glorious and playful essence of nature in the pins, pendants and necklaces I create. A variety of textures, colors and shapes makes each piece of jewelry quite distinctive ~ art that must be seen and worn to be appreciated.
An important aspect of every artist’s style is a studio that nurtures innovation and inspiration. My studio is a spiritual and motivating space where I am surrounded by an abundance of treasures from nature. Some gemstones remain on my bench for years until the perfect complement arrives, often inspiring a welcome flurry of creativity.
