If you think that Josette’s jewelry designs
are dramatic and edgy,you can thank her
years as a costume designer, jewelry designer
and prop master for some of the biggest
bands in the history of rock ‘n’ roll.
That’s where she acquired her flare for
big pieces that make a statement about
who you are as the wearer.
A big tomboy at heart, she never shied away
from getting her hands dirty, sharing her love
of semi-precious and precious stones with her
son. Rock hounding was an activity that the
two of them could do together as a form of
physical and occupational therapy.
Her son had a great love for collecting rocks
and it allowed him to gain strength while the two
enjoyed time together and in nature. From their
weekend adventures into the rock mines came
an appreciation for some of Mother Nature’s most
beautiful and spectacular creations – amethyst,
crystals, rubies, emeralds, quartz and turquoise
– brilliant colors and combinations that would
become the signatures of her growing jewelry
