Pebbles at my Feet

Author Archive: Pebbles at my Feet

I am Pamela Hollis, from South Park in Colorado. I am a biologist by degree, an engineering business manager and technical writer by career, a ski instructor, creative cook, musician, and jewelry artisan.

I love stones - picking them up and putting them in my pocket, polishing them, collecting them, displaying them on windowsills, and creating jewelry with them. I also love working with metal wire and sheet.

Pebbles at my Feet designs are influenced by Nature, fueled by my childhood memories of my father's lapidary hobby, and colored by the places I've lived. Every piece has a stone it it somewhere! I am inspired by them: their color, polish, and light play. My work is also influenced by the earth, snow, rivers, and skies of South Park and the mountains of central Colorado. I strive for immediacy in my jewelry - as if I was making a daisy chain in the field, only using wire and stones. I want Pebbles at my Feet to evoke that childhood joy of found treasure. My simply designed jewelry lets the stone - from humble backyard pebble to luminous gemstone - speak to the wearer.
