Welcome to Heliotrope Studio!  An art studio needs a name, so I chose heliotrope because it is one of my favorite minerals.  Heliotrope is a semi precious gemstone (also known as bloodstone), composed of  quartz and jasper.   Though there are color variations, the classic heliotrope is deep green with red spots or inclusions.

In addition to making jewelry, I enjoy paper, fabric, metal crafts, altered, and assemblage art.  I have been a Humane Society volunteer for many years and donate art and jewelry to local rescue groups for fund-raising events.

If you love art and animals, we are truly soul mates.


PS  The word heliotrope is Greek and means something that  moves in response to the direction of the sun.  In that sense, I know many humans who are heliotropes as well!
