My name is Amber Smuin. Central Oregon has been considered my home for most of my life. I am a Special Education Teacher but I have always loved working with silver and semi-precious gemstones. My business name is near-and-dear to me as it is a combination of my maiden name (Taylor) and my mothers maiden name (McCormack). My parents have are a huge inspiration and support for me in my life. I also have two sons in their early twenties that have always been my proudest accomplishment.
Most of the stones in the jewelry I sell are tumbled or created into cabs. I will, on occasion, by raw slabs or cabochons if its material I don't have on site or if I just can't help myself.
Those that know me well would tell you that I LOVE the ocean/beach and my dog, Ruger.
