With restrictions and staffing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, my rural Post Office is struggling to maintain service. They are working hard, with small town postmasters sharing and keeping open three different offices 40 to 60 miles apart. Still, there have been and are anticipated service disruptions in local mail deliveries and pick-up.

My shop is open and all items listed here are available to purchase online but now I am shipping items only once per week when I make my essential trip (to a larger town with fewer disruptions). This might mean your item will ship right away, or in up to 7 days. I'll keep you posted when I receive your order. Wishing you good health and hoping you stay safe in these unprecedented circumstances.

When thinking about pink stones, certain fancy gemstones come to mind such as pink sapphire, ruby, and certain types of garnet. There's also tourmaline, pink topaz, zircon, diamond, and spinel.

In the Pink - with Rhodochrosite

I’ve been thinking a lot about pink these days. Wondering if the color psychology is true that pink can help you feel better. What do you think?

For my creative part, I’ve been drawn to pink stones lately, adding several new earrings to my shops that feature different pink gemstones. In this post, I’d like to introduce you to rhodochrosite.

Beautiful North American Turquoise

There are few things that make my heart sing like turquoise. Just looking at my stash of turquoise beads makes me happy. And yet, I don’t make a lot of straight out turquoise jewelry. I just might be a turquoise bead hoarder.

Turquoise! My very own turquoise treasure box.

Re-Introducing Pebbles At My Feet

Since my blog has languished for a while, I thought I should reintroduce myself and my studio to folks who happen to find me on the internet. If you’re a customer who has stayed with me from the start; thanks for hanging in there. It’s fun to have you along as I grow as an artist and jewelry business.

This October marks 8 years that Pebbles At My Feet has been offering handcrafted natural stone jewelry online.  I’m so very grateful to everyone who has purchased from me over the years. Please know I really do a happy dance with each and every order.

What's New

OK, so it's been a couple of years - yes, years - since my last blog post. I've been trundling along with my online shop, showing and selling at craft shows in my local Colorado area, creating new natural stone jewelry, and concentrating on getting better with my photography. I love hearing from folks who've stumbled across my shop or a photo in a Google search so I figured I'd better get the best photos I can out there. That's occupied the better part of the past year.
