Charity Wanechek

Charity mainly sets stones from the three states she considers home—Nevada, Washington and Montana. Stones such as turquoise, white buffalo, agate, and opal are set in silver or gold, then oxidized to create a rugged look. Charity often says she wants her jewelry to look like a treasure that one might uncover in a ghost town – tying in with her business name (Ghost Town Metal Works). Large statement pieces include collar necklaces, cuff bracelets, and two-finger rings.
