Shelly Birch has designed and created jewelry since she was a young child. Her first jewelry gallery show was at the age of 18. She is an honors graduate of Laguna College of Art and Design. When Shelly’s not traveling around the world, she spends her time in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
In 2001, Shelly quit her job as Creative Services Manager to go on a year-long trip around the world. The jewelry in the Stone collection was inspired by that trip. The sterling silver and copper jewelry incorporates stones she hand selected, or in some cases had custom carved for her, on her journey. Today Shelly buys many of her stones directly from the miners in Colorado and enjoys cutting, polishing and doing the lapidary work herself.
