    FABULOUS!!! I love jasper and use it a lot. I’ve always had problems with mookaite. NOW I have a plan… combine them. You are a genius!!!

    Love the soothing harmony of colors and elements. I’d sell some useless body part to be able to patinate like that! Anybody need a spleen?

    Your metal working and patina skills are just killer!! I have been admiring your work ever since I saw one of your necklaces on Pinterest over a year ago! Plus you always seem to have the most gorgeous stones. Subtle, muted colors and beautiful shine polish. Love this of course!!
