Hello and Welcome to SilverSpiral Creations! Our Mission is to create wearable art jewelry for you, using nature’s most beautiful stones. The stones we hand-select are carefully chosen from talented lapidary artisans, and we enhance each natural stone by creating a wearable setting out of sterling silver, copper, brass, or gold.
Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted in our studio. We use techniques such as sawing forming, soldering, pressing, grinding, hammering, and texturing. We consider the shape, texture, color, and personality of each stone and from there, create a one-of-a-kind setting for them.
Our studio is located in Torrington, Connecticut, USA. We sell our work on-line in our Etsy store. We also sell at local artisan marketplaces or shows. You can see our work in person at the Soulbury Gift Shop in Woodbury, Connecticut.
SilverSpiral Creations will also create custom jewelry for you! Maybe you have a special stone you would like to make wearable. We may be able to create the perfect setting for you. Or perhaps you always dreamt of having a certain stone set in to a ring, bracelet, or pendant. We love to collect stones and have many in our studio that are just waiting to find a home in a piece of custom jewelry. If we don’t have exactly what you are looking for on-hand, chances are excellent that we can find just what you want.

How do I write my story? Over the years I have been involved in many careers: teacher, executive director, professor, music therapist. I have a Doctorate Degree in Education. With all of this, and my beautiful family of 4 daughters, a husband and numerous pets, something was always missing.
I was in a big box store one day, and I saw some gorgeous stone beads. They were agate, and I loved them, so despite never having made jewelry, I bought them. I grabbed some bead stringing materials, crimps, a clasp and three pairs of pliers. I thought it would be easy–right? Well, I found out it was more involved than I thought, so I did a little research (I just LOVE the internet!) and began building my skills. From that day on, I worked hard and tried to learn the skill, with very little money. Then one day, I got a phone call from a friend I had met (she was a jewelry vendor at a conference I helped organize). Then one day, I got a phone call from her– she was going out of the jewelry business! She remembered that I had a passion for jewelry making and she offered to give me all of her supplies!) It was then that my business was launched!
