The pendants I design and carve are signed and dated one-of-a-kind art objects. The absolute dedication I put into every phase of their creation puts them on a different level than the mass-produced work manufactured in Asian jade factories.

I concentrate on all-stone pendants hung on simple cords. For me there is a timeless elegance in a beautiful jade presented this way, without the interference of metal mountings. I put a lot of thought and experimentation into how the pendants hang and balance on their cords, since they are really small suspended sculptures. I re-carve agate and jasper beads to make a unique sliding closure for the cords, so they are adjustable in length.

These pendants have been retailing for between $125.00 and $500.00 US. Wholesale pricing is keystone.
