I'm Judy. I'm StoneWyre.

Taking a straight length of fiber and turning it into something beautiful has fascinated me since I was a child. Whether it was a crocheted afghan, a counted cross-stitch sampler, or a petit point tapestry, watching the pattern take shape beneath my fingers and seeing the colors grow into a piece of art gave me great satisfaction. When I discovered wire, my imagination took off. Now, I usually have a sketchbook with me wherever I go, so I can jot down ideas for settings. 

Some people count sheep; I see a stone and design a setting for it as I drift off to sleep.

Along the way, I developed a great love and admiration for natural stones and crystals. Mother Nature is an amazing artists in geology--from amazing crystalline structures to unexpected patterns and color combinations. They inspired me to create settings unique to each stone. Bold, feminine, angular, or delicate, the stone's shape, color and feel make each pendant one-of-a-kind. Even my earrings are typically one-of-a-kind or limited editions.

My background in the tech field dictated the necessity for well-engineered settings. Beauty is nothing if it's not well made!

Learning the characteristics of metal wire progressed naturally to metalsmithing. I love to forge shapes and texture into metal and to combine it with colorful patinas and Mother Nature's remarkable stones and crystals.

In my eyes, however, the jewelry is not done until it has found a home. I love to have someone see a piece of my jewelry and feel drawn immediately to it. StoneWyre creations are original artisan designs, handcrafted with care and love, and when you put them on, that is when the piece is truly complete.
