Lake Superior, the beauty and energy this pristine Great Lake exudes is phenomenal. From its serene, sparkling, calm waters to the largest waves of all its rage and fury. Living in such a beautiful place inspires our creativity.
Beach Combing for beautiful stones is a wonderful pastime. Our favorite beaches are from Grand Marais east to Whitefish Point. The beautiful wearable creations in our Lake Superior Collection feature stones that have been hand selected, cut, shaped, drilled, and polished in our home studio in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Our creations are all handcrafted utilizing many techniques including enameling, wire wrapping, designs hand sawn from solid copper and sterling silver, and working with kiln fired metal clays. We also enjoy incorporating fossils and other gemstones from around the world in our designs.
