"Hands of Help and Hope" starts with the idea that we present ourselves with the opportunity to hold hope. Yet we want and need the help of others to achieve our goals/dreams. The gold hands are our own and the hands of those in our lives with different abilities to help us on our journey. The three Oregon sunstones, the Oregon state gem, each held by different sets of hands, reminds us of the light and the hope of brighter days. The blue-green tourmaline is the drop of water we all need.

Artist Statement: "Jewelry is my love and my passion. I have been making jewelry for more than 45 years and i am still excited. It is my pleasure to be working with my son Sam at this time. We work together from different studios and enjoy showing our work at shows around the state. We focus our efforts on making fine pieces of wearable art that features beautiful precious and semi-precious gems set in sterling silver and karat gold. We are very good at making custom designed pieces. We hope we will see you at one of our shows."
