How We Care


We revere and respect the land, the stones, and the people who work with both. The stones you get from us to incorporate into your artwork, your special collection, or to simply wear and enjoy, have been filled with love, honor and respect. Most of the work we do ourselves, but when we do get help, we make sure it is Fair Trade.
