Becky Thatcher Designs combine the natural textures of stone, the colorful depths of faceted gems and the luster of pearls with silver, high karat gold and platinum. Appreciating each stone for its inherent beauty, Becky personally selects exceptional gemstones, such as tourmaline, boulder opal, fancy sapphire, tanzanite, rutilated quartz and beryl from Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Bangkok. Globally, she collects outstanding stones from artists’ lapidaries and gemstone beads, both ancient and modern, to convey stories of the different cultures and locales. Inspired by the earth, water, skies and wildlife of her lakeside home, Becky has always been drawn to shapes and colors of local beach stones. To visually capture the essence of northern Michigan, she paints “picture” necklaces, bracelets and earrings incorporating these distinctive stones.
