SUN is an ongoing exploration of gold and stone.
My mission is to bring beauty into being. What you will find here is jewelry made by hand from natural materials. I believe in using solid, 14 karat gold to make jewelry that will last your lifetime. To better align this project with my devotion to live in reciprocity with our Mother Earth, I now seek out recycled gold and vintage-mined rough. She has given all she can; we must now make use of all we have taken.
I dream in color, with open eyes. These stones come from the earth - bright & bold. The technique of inlay is a living artistic legacy of the American Southwest. I work with some of the most talented craftspeople that cut and lay these stones with magical precision.
Together we make luxury objects of beauty for everyday use. Slow and deliberate investment in adornment and outward expression. This has been my antidote to mass-consumerism and disposable fashion. I hope it can be yours, too.
"...rugged lifeboats, designed to carry a plant's offspring to the shore of an uncertain future." - from Harold Mcgee's On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen
The humble seed, carrier of life.
A safe-keeping place for future things and sunnier times.
How we weather it, we learn that from mother nature.
We look to the seed as a symbol of abundance, resilience, and propagation.
A reminder that everything we've ever needed, we contain within our selves.
Homage to our grandmothers and great-grandmothers. Mothers and non-mothers.
The legacy of a life lived with empathy and care seeds the future with light.
Seeds within seeds within seeds.

MADE PER ORDER
Rings are an expensive thing to keep in stock for the myriad sizes that we all come in! Here, you can place an order for a ring and it will be made to order for you over the course of about 8 weeks.
Unless you already know your ring size, start by ordering a ring sizer below (no charge) and that will set the wheels in motion. Following that, we can be in touch about things like stone color and any other special instructions for your order.
If you already know your ring size and you're ready to place an order, you'll find your ring size in the pull-down menu of the particular ring you're interested in. If for whatever reason you don't see your size, please reach out - I'm just an email away and can adjust your order accordingly. Once you've placed your order I will be in touch with you about additional details and info.
Happy shopping! Happy Dreaming! Rings are very powerful talismans, keepers of memory, and symbols of life's most significant events. I'm so incredibly grateful when I can be a part making something so special.
