About UsCandace is a stone whisperer who has made her living since 1976 designing and making one-of-a-kind fine jewelry in Newport, RI. Today her art expands outward into paintings, pillows, painted furniture, fascinator hats and books about the healing properties of stones.
I began making jewelry and painting when I was a child. In the fifties, making jewelry was a man's job, so college years were geared towards making jewelry and painting for a career in teaching. A professor saw my potential and sent me on a job interview. After working for two goldsmiths for two years, I opened my own business and became known as a Stone Whisper due to my ability to often look at stones and see how they would like to be mounted.
Jewelry making lead me into the concept of stone energies that brought me into writing about them. "Crystal Caves" is a fun adventure for all ages if interested in how the energy of stones can work for you. When ready to take the next step in curiosity in healing energies of stones, then the A-Z listings found in "Stone Magic" is for you!

“Her pieces have a mystical allure.”

Being an artist who is 69 years young, I've been creating a long time. Not many people can say they've made their living as an artist. I"m proud to say I have! Though most friends are retiring around me, I keep enlightening them with how I feel about that . . . "Artists don't retire, we reinvent ourselves." I can't wait for the next inspiring thought to manifest into something I can offer you all.
