Dwelling in the shadows of the Rocky Mountains, immersed in the rich colors of the Colorado seasons, and surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of our Colorado outdoors. blessings! Jewelry combines natural materials, and inspiration from their surroundings, to create one of a kind jewelry.
Being a part of the jewelry industry has led us on a journey of discovery. This journey has brought us to the realization that the jewelry industry is riddled with unethical practices. We strive to purchase our raw materials from ethical sources; i.e., our sterling silver comes from the United States and we purchase our stones from responsible suppliers. We also refuse to purchase conflict minerals, like Lapis Lazuli. Conflict minerals are those that directly fund war and terrorism, or control of the material has been forcibly seized by local governments. To further these efforts, we donate to a local organization that fights human trafficking on a global scale. 10% of all workshop revenue is donated to the Exodus Road (www.theexodusroad.org).
Wrapped in Blessings
As I have gotten older, I have realized that I come from I long line of artists. My grandmother was a textile artist, mainly quilting. When I was a child I was fascinated watching her deftly stitch every tiny, complicated, intricate stitch. She told me that with every stitch, she would say a prayer or a 'blessing" to the person she was making the quilt for. That way, the recipient would be wrapped in blessings. I have carried this tradition into my jewelry making. For every wrap, every twist, and every bend of the wire, I say a "blessing" to the future wearer. May they carry those blessings with them always.
