I love turquoise. I want more turquoise. I love cutting and polishing it and making jewelry out of it. I’ve been fortunate to have had a couple of friends give me some turquoise over the course of the years, and that makes it very special.
I wear a lot of jewelry, a lot of the time. I’ve made every piece I wear (except my wedding ring) and each piece has its own meaning to me. I always wear the second ring I ever made. Why? Because I made it for me, because I wanted a silver and turquoise ring and after making the first one, I discovered I could make one that I would wear. It symbolizes to me that I can do this, I can make something that measures up.
