Welcome to the world as seen through my eyes. As an artist I have explored and created in many different medias during my journey.
Physical adornment begins with the very beginning of humanity.
Fine Jewelry is the most personal of all art and it is the one art form that you become physically and emotionally involved with as it can express the purest form of ones portrayed illusion. Jewelry represents the union between the fragile flesh of the body and the passion to show who we are through the art of adornment and it can dictate stature and achievement. Jewelry can reflect your emotions or change them; it can be the symbolic bond between you and another and hold memories for generations.
We are all such different people, it is very exciting for me to create with the light from diamonds, colored stones and precious metals a fine piece of jewelry intricately compatible with the wearer and their emotions.

Taking care of your jewelry:

Argentium® silver casting grain is 93.5% pure silver, which exceeds the 92.5% pure sterling silver standard. Pieces cast with Argentium® silver casting grain are a brighter white and nickel free (hypoallergenic). This metal is stamped “935”
All silver will tarnish a little over time if not cared for with a few simple steps. We have specially formulated cleaning solution and a polishing cloth for Karl and Audrey’s silver and gold jewelry. For unoxidized jewelry it is always best to clean your Jewelry before putting it away by simply dipping it in our cleaning solution for about 30 seconds. Never leave your jewelry in the solution!!! Prolonged exposure to the cleaning solution will cause considerable damage to the finish. For oxidized jewelry just rub the smooth surfaces lightly with a polishing cloth.
Ancient civilizations placed a high value in this stone. Their belief was that the amethyst crystal meaning was synonymous with luxury. As such, it was highlighted as part of their crowns, scepters and rings. Amethyst crystal is one of several varieties of quartz, which gives it a crystal trigonal system. Its lavender to violet shade is the result of iron and aluminum deposits, as well as natural irradiation. Amethyst stone is made up of silicon dioxide.
Amethyst healing properties are as plentiful as the stone itself. It is thought of mostly as a protective stone. As it is linked to the crown chakra, it is helpful in purifying the mind and clearing it of negative thoughts. This includes the negativity of stress and anxiety, which is why many meditate with amethyst so as to rid themselves of that darkness. Amethyst healing properties are especially useful in regards to work-related stress, because the stone is also associated with abundance; therefore relieving stress while emanating prosperity. The amethyst properties which facilitate intuition and communication can also be applied to increased work effectiveness.
WHERE IT’S FOUND
Amethyst is quite common and is found on all continents, with the larger deposits currently being mined in South America, Africa and North America. The largest global producer is Brazil with an annual production of around two to three thousand tons.
