About the Artist

Gretchen2Gretchen has been designing and making jewelry in her Big Sky studio for 10 years. Some of her designs have evolved over the years to reflect current trends, and some remain timeless.

She travels each February to the Tucson International Gem Show, where she hand-selects the gemstones, pearls and precious metals with which she will work for the coming year. It is important that she be able to “touch and feel” each component to ensure its quality and intrinsic beauty. She has developed business relationships with suppliers in the US, as well as around the world, and cultivates those relationships throughout the year.

She has been honored to have one of her designs published in the beautiful Bead Trends Magazine, a reproduction of which is shown on this page.
