We are Bill and Mary Byrley, from Columbus, Ohio. We have been making jewelry since 2005.
Our inspiration comes from the breathtaking beauty of the earth, its stunning colors and forms, and specifically how we find that beauty, color, and form in gems and minerals. What often begins as a piece encrusted with layers of dirt reveals itself to be a true gem. As with people and books, often the true beauty is found within.
Whenever possible we search for our stones at their source in mountains, deserts, and streams. Other times we purchase the raw material directly from mine owners, miners, and other mineral vendors. We take this raw material through a process of cleaning, cutting, shaping, polishing, and mounting. The result is the jewelry we are proud to present to our customers.
