Yvonne & RJ Hurley

RJ and Yvonne Hurley, both retired from their respective occupations devote much of their time now to the arts of Lapidary, Silversmithing and Wire Framing.

Yvonne’s interest in these fine arts has been a result of growing up on the shores of Lake Erie where she spent many hours from an early age combing the beach for rocks, shells and fossils.

RJ’s interest in Lapidary developed over 40 years ago during time spent in the Dakotas hunting fossils and agates and spread to include a deep interest in mineralogy and gemology.

Although both are trained in Silversmithing and Lapidary, Yvonne focuses primarily on Wire Framing and Beadwork while RJ does the Lapidary and Silversmithing. They both share a passion for turning Nature’s creations into pieces of wearable art.

When not creating new pieces they are avid golfers and snow skiers. In addition, they both enjoy playing with their 3 Balinese Kittens and visiting with friends and family.
