It started in El Paso, TX when I crossed the border into Juarez, Mexico and bought a wire wrapped amethyst crystal from a man selling jewelry on the sidewalk. I fell in love with the intricate wire details covering the crystal. I went back several times to buy more but never found the man again. He inspired me to create my own since I couldn't find anything like it online. Now, it's such a pleasure hunting for gems and creating fashionate beauties out of them.
