ECHOES OF NATURE
The inspiration behind EarthWhorls’ distinctive handmade jewelry is the natural beauty, diversity, power and passion of the world around us. The artisan gemstone jewelry designs that appear on this site are unique creations; each is one-of-a-kind and no piece is ever replicated. The reason for this is the desire to stay true to the landscapes that produce the glorious gemstones I am privileged to work with. Whether opals from Peru and Australia or, turquoise from the American south west and Africa, each gemstone necklace, earring, bracelet and anklet attempts to represent its origins and to create a connection, for the wearer, to the natural world.
Genuine handmade jewelry is a labor of love. Each raw gemstone necklace, turquoise bracelet, pair of citrine earrings, is a gift from nature to you. My role is simply to provide the stage upon which stone and pearl and silver and crystal can perform.
What makes our designs unique is that each handcrafted jewelry concept begins with the stones and silver, pearls and crystal and evolves in the same way these earth offerings were created. I work slowly, patiently, and with the greatest of care and respect for the persona of each stone and for the story it wants to tell. Mostly, each design is a celebration of the most beautiful creations on earth.
