I introduce to you the wonderfully talented...

Hand fabricated in sterling and fine silver with a rutilated quartz center stone.  The bottom stone sitting at the root chakra of the pendant is a garnet.  Accompanying the pendant is a handmade silver chain.  To learn more about this piece or any of the following pieces, just click the links provided.

In her wonderful workshop, Margaret is shown here soldering a bezel.

This one-of-a-kind .999 fine silver ring is offered in a variety of custom sizes from 4-10.  The ring shown is a size 7.5, but wears more like a 7.  This statement ring is perfect to give as a gift, for the bee lover, and a lovely little heart with the words "Be Mine" adorns the back.

Perhaps my favorite of Margaret's creations follows with this lovely
