Our Story Starts with a Journey

Becky Thatcher has been designing exquisite, handmade jewelry for over three decades. These fine pieces feature locally acquired stones, set against rarer gemstones, recalling distant places. Boulder opal, sapphire, quartz and beryl from across the seas are set beside the Petoskey, beachstones and fossils of northern Lake Michigan’s pristine shoreline.

Collecting Stories

The beauty of a stone and the care with which it is mined are the foundation of Becky’s inspiration and are paramount to the story of the finished piece. Materials are sourced from some of the finest cutters and most reputable collectors in the United States and beyond, including notable artists Ben Kho, Dieter Lorenz, and Steve Walters, and gem dealers including James Alger, Gary Bowersox, and Mayer & Watt. For over 35 years, Becky Thatcher has forged relationships with these stewards of the earth and seen their cutting studios and craftsmanship firsthand.

The stone compositions bring near and far, past and present into each piece. We invite you to experience the sense of a journey’s return that every piece evokes. Our flagship store in Glen Arbor, Michigan or our stores in Leland or Traverse City may be just where you find your own story.
