Sadly I lost my wonderful friend, Brenda, to cancer. Every time I see an inuksuk, a crystal store, a beautiful bird and many other things too long to list I think of her. She loved crystals and knew so much about them. On one of our visits she told me I needed some aventurine. I…Read More

Estate jewelry comes with a history. It’s often a mystery, although sometimes the former owner shares things with the seller who can pass it along to the new owner.
