Owner and Artist
Colleen works as a jewelry artist in Seattle, WA. She loves found objects and minimally shiny things. The delicate jewelry of Thistle | Stone is crafted out of her love of organic things and the natural world. She loves Annie Dillard, Mary Oliver, Thoreau and all things whimsical and tree-like. She began making jewelry for friends and for herself over 13 years ago. As her passion grew to offer meaningful, hand crafted gifts to those she loves, so did her desire to share this love on a larger scale. She deeply hopes the delight she finds in the simplest of things will be translated through the jewelry she makes and that the wearer will also find delight in the simple, lovely things littered all around us every day. Colleen and her husband, Jeff Baergen, work together these days to craft these lovely jewels :) As you can see, they are quite happy about it.
