I taught elementary school for more than thirty years and upon retirement, my granddaughter and I decided to take up beading and wirework. I noticed immediately that Becca had an eye for color and thoroughly enjoyed creating beautiful pieces of jewelry. It was only natural that we combine our talents. With Becca developing her beading skills, I could concentrate on my passion of sterling silver wrapping and Merribec Sterling and Stone opened for business.

At Merribec Sterling and Stone we take unique natural stones and wrap them in sterling silver or string them to create wearable works of art. Whether our stones are used in beading or wrapped in wire, our goal is to let the stones speak, making every piece a one-of-a-kind treasure.
