Meet the Artist: Laury Monk
Laury was introduced to the beauty of rocks and minerals in 2001 by her mentor -- who started the first rock and mineral store in Colorado. His great love and knowledge of the stones inspired Laury to start beading. She remains fascinated and inspired by Native American culture, by the stark beauty of the desert and by the amazing diversity of natural stones. Each piece is one of a kind, and incorporates the finest materials, including antique and new stones.Learn More
