Dream Follower Art Jewelry

The great, great, great granddaughter of Colorado pioneers, I grew up on the Western Slope of Colorado in a farming, ranching, and mining community. I’ve lived in Colorado Springs for 23 years. My mother is an artist, my father a carpenter. So, hammering metal in an artistic manner seems a natural choice. I studied metal smithing, ceramics, sculpture and drawing in college.

Coming from a family of story tellers, I grew up at time when parents kicked their kids out of the house after breakfast and told them not to come back until it was dark. In this way, I learned the stories of nature. Rocks and mountains and trees are still my biggest influences. I enjoy learning and sharing the stories the stones tell. Nature makes each stone unique through thousands and sometimes millions of years of pressure and mineral changes. I geek out on the science and love to find that unique story in each stone and sharing it through art.

 

Whimsical, hand forged silver, semi-precious stone artisan made jewelry. Flames and molten metal – what’s not to love. I love to incorporate found objects (someone else trash ;) and I have a commitment to fair trade stones and recycled metals. I use suppliers who support these beliefs.

Jewelry is like clothing, it should be comfortable. I would like every piece of my jewelry to become an heirloom. Not because it is too precious to wear and has been hidden in a safe for years, but because it was so loved and worn so often that it becomes a part and parcel of your memory of a special person. I have fun creating my jewelry, I hope you have fun wearing it.
