Did you ever wonder what happened to the "Voice with a Smile"? Well, I used to be one! That was in the days when you had to make an appointment with the overseas operator to call internationally and some small, rural communities still had crank-style telephones.

But things change, and I changed too. After working more than forty years in the telecommunications industry I retired and started my own business - in fact, I started two of them and you'll find them both on this website.

My first love is making  jewelry . I found that I could create things of substance, beauty and meaning with a bit of wire and a few beads.  Each completed piece gives me a marvelous sense of fulfillment and achievement.  I quickly became, and still am, enchanted by this process.

Getting older is inevitable but it doesn't mean we have to look (or act) our age.  Which brings ne to my second business - Rodan and Fields Skincare. These wonderful products really do turn back the clock and why not have beautiful skin to go with beautiful jewelry!

My one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces are exhibited and sold through the Cary Gallery of Artists in Cary, NC as well as the Trumbull Art Gallery in Warren, Ohio and through this website. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come back often. New things are added on a regular basis and your comments are welcome and appreciated.

Chalcedony is said to be a nurturing stone that promotes brotherhood and goodwill. This stone is thought by some to absorb negative energy and then dissipate it so that the energy doesn't move to someone else.

Chalcedony is also thought to bring the mind, body and spirit into alignment, sending feelings of generosity and benevolence to the wearer by removing self doubt and building self confidence.

Some believe Kyanite has a calming effect, bringing tranquility and driving away emotional stress for the wearer.

Traditional Kyanite sources of gem crystals include Brazil, Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Switzerland, Russia, Kenya, and the U.S. (North Carolina, Connecticut, and Maine)
