Blue Heron Jewelry and woodwork studios is a marriage of my two loves - sticks and stones (i.e. figured domestic and exotic hardwoods and fine gemstones). I began my jewelry career creating unique wood jewelry boxes, jeweled hair sticks, combs and barrettes. Soon, customers began asking for matching and coordinating jewelry designs and the jewelry end of the business was born. I have over 20 years experience in the fields of woodworking and jewelry design. My work has been featured in local and national print, movie and Television media and is private collections world wide.
