It brings her too much joy to never stop. Having been blessed with two amazing children, they help her remember that the simple things in life are what make her most happy. She is thankful for them letting her join in the discovery of the world through their eyes.
Ever since her first metalsmithing class in college, Renee has been making jewelry. She feels very fortunate to be still making jewelry after 20 years. She loves what she does & tries to express that in what she makes. She continually explores new techniques, styles & methods of creating.
Renee enjoys the process of creating the jewelry as much as the end result. Gemstones of all kinds draw her eye. She often designs around a stone versus designing a piece then choosing the stone. Nature is an extraordinary artist so she chooses to use the natural gemstones it has given us.
Many of her one of a kind designs focus on semi translucent & opaque gemstones like agates & jaspers. Her love for gemstones has become a bit of a addiction, so her collection is large & varied. Renee can custom design a piece just for you from one of the hundreds of loose gemstones she has collected. She has owned a bricks & mortar retail store, Blue Moon Jewelry Designs, for over 15 years. Blue Moon Jewelry Designs carries herself, plus 40 other designers that are local & from across the globe. They can create jewelry from the thousands of loose gemstones, specialize in creative wedding jewelry, fine quality diamonds & gemstones, with a focus on unique original designs.
