"The Green Jeweler" grew from the joy of making art and jewelry and my passion for protecting the earth's resources. I am so grateful for the support from so many customers, it helped me give time and donate to causes below. Sustainability isn't a trend for me, I've have been using reclaimed metals for 30 years.
I start with high quality gemstones that are fair mined in the US and then handcrafting settings from recycled sterling silver, fine silver and gold.
Inspiration comes from the deep enjoyment I get from being outdoors.
Each setting is designed, hand fabricated, soldered, fused and gemstones set by hand in my studio in Coos Bay, Oregon. I also cut some of our own gemstones.
Our jewelry is 3 time State of California WRAP Award winners for recycled content, and reader's choice from the American Manufacturing Guide.
Here are a few of the organizations I give to- League of Conservation Voters, World Wildlife, Face to Face Aids Support Network, Rogue Riverkeeper, Wild and Scenic Rivers, NRDC, Sierra Club.
