I thought that some of you may appreciate this woman's particular design style as well as her handcrafted jewelry. They're pretty pricey but if you live by Valley Fair Mall in San Jose (across from Santana Row), you should stop by her boutique...there's so many fascinating pieces that you may just lose track of time.
I purchased two of her necklaces as Christmas gifts for some very dear friends and let me tell you that the web pictures don't even compare to how lovely the jewelry is in person. She uses the softest lace backing and these pieces have some weight to them.
I have scans of her catalog if anyone is interested in seeing them."
