Pink Peruvian Opal stone and hand-pierced Woodland Star cutout. Sterling silver pendant hangs from 18" sterling silver chain.

Woodland stars are some of the more delicate flowers you will come across as you hike. They produce dozens of unique scent compounds to attract pollinators and seem to have coevolved with the Greya moth, which pollinates and lays eggs only in woodland star flowers. Each species, and even each population in any given area, has its own unique scent, having as many as 50 different scent compounds.

Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted at my home studio from raw materials. The stones are carefully selected from master lapidaries. When picking out the stones, I look for cut and color, attempting to find the most vibrant and inspirational elements to add to my work. All of the metals start as wire and sheet metal, that I transform into heirloom pieces of art.
