What started out as merely a fun side class to supplement Roetzel's anthropology major soon spiraled into a deep passion. (In a good way!) While still in college, she eventually made the decision to make jewelry-making into more than just a hobby and, well, she's never looked back. While hard at work for someone else, a small group of pebbles and their characterizing patterns unexpectedly inspired Roetzel to go her own way. Now her creations emulate the natural beauty found in nature, while protecting it by using only recycled materials. Oh, and they're rather striking, too.
