Melanie Hecht, Derby, KS
In 2009, I went on my first rock hounding trip and that changed my life. I had found my passion in life.
My products include wire-wrapped stone pendants, adjustable sterling silver or copper rings, beaded wire rings, and stretchy chain mail bracelets.
Many of my pendants are made from rocks I found myself. I am an avid rock hound and lapidary artist. I do all the shaping and polishing of the rocks by hand, not with a tumbler, and then create the wire-wrapped framework to hold them with sterling silver and/or gold filled wire.
