Since that time I have worked with and enjoyed many stones, either kept in my pocket, worn as jewelry, or used in healing Reiki or bodywork sessions. I created my first Chakra pendant a few years ago. It received so much praise that I decided to start making more to give as gifts. Once I got started designing jewelry, there was no stopping me! I continue to branch out into many different forms of jewelry and other gemstone designs.”

The first week of school was always an occasion to beg for new jars of paste, scissors, colored pencils, and paints… I remember hiding miniature dolls in a skirt pocket to play with in school because I was so bored with the lessons…

I began making collages in college, which became wall hangings. Now what I usually make are decorated journal books, decorated tiny boxes, and other items…

    Hello,

    I am interested in some of your varieties of jasper, I am specifically looking for Red Leopard Skin Jasper gemstone but if you can maybe give me some other recommendations for some of your favorites that would be great.

    I will be making knife handles out of the material, and some scultpured figures. What type of carving tools would your recommend to be cutting it? And where can I buy the Jasper?

    Thank you very much for your time,

    Elliot M. Fox

      Hi Elliot – I don’t sell stones – I make jewelry from them. And I don’t carve – I buy most of my stones as beads with holes already drilled in them. Sorry I can’t help with your inquiry, but I agree that Red Leopard skin Jasper is a beautiful stone. Good luck finding some for your needs.
