Forest Floor Moon and Stars Spring Mermaid

Welcome! All of my pieces are crafted from only natural-colored gemstones and either sterling silver or 14k gold-filled or gold vermeil findings. I do not use any stones that have been dyed; neither do I use man-made materials. Also, please don’t hesitate to contact me for a custom order. We can work together to create something that will be perfect for you!

“PoĆ©sie” in French means “poetry”.

Back when I first decided to call my business Poesies, oh, probably back around 1991, I was looking at “posy rings” and I loved the romantic idea. Posy or “posie” rings are plain rings with inscriptions inside them that are exchanged by lovers. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posie_ring, this practice began to be popular in the 15th century. “They were used as a lover's token, a wedding ring, or simply as a means of showing regard or giving a gift.”

In addition to the Poesies project, I am currently planning a line of fine jewelry incorporating sterling silver, palladium, and colored precious stones.
