I have always liked both jewelry and rocks…both getting them and
giving them. My husband and I got into the bead jewelry business
about 2 years ago in response to a request from friends in Sweden
that we bring them some rocks when we came back…things that are
associated with crystal healing. That led us to Quartzsite, Arizona
during the winter rock fest and our business was born. we saw all
the beautiful stone beads and realized stone bead jewelry would
complement ou Native American jewelry.
We have jewelry making studios in both California and Sweden but our
primary market has been in Sweden. There are few bead shops in
Sweden and there is actually no noun in Swedish for bead. Our
designs have been well received.
