Clidastes Stones cover
Description As a geologist, I of course love stones. I often look for stones with unique shape to them and have long wondered what to do with them. A few months ago I (re)discovered suiseki and started making some for family gifts. Then, I just kept making them. I was also given a gift of a wire wrapped stone from one of our field trips by one of my students. At Christmas, we were trying to find gifts for people we didn't know very well and I realized - wire wrapped pendants are a lovely gift. I made the ones for the gifts, and then became obsessed with those as well. I love the opportunity to make and share my stones with others.

I decided to start selling my artwork as a way to raise awareness and money to help pay for my dog's treatments for degenerative myelopathy, a progressive debilitating condition that is very much like ALS in humans. I rescued Reddie almost two years ago as an older "unadoptable" dog. About a month later I learned he had degenerative myelopathy. For now I am working to support my dog, but the time will come when he will succumb to this terrible disease (average life span after diagnosis is 1-3 years). However, a portion of my proceeds also goes to the local SPCA to help other dogs find a home. When the time comes that Reddie is no longer with me I plan to team up with a foundation who is doing research to cure this disease through gene therapy. Did you know that this same research can some day also help people with ALS (Lou Gerig's disease)? I hope to be a part of helping to make that happen.
