Jocelyn Stoody Funeral Home Attendant/Local Artist

I am an artist working from my home in Bozeman, Montana.  Before moving to Bozeman I was a jewelry maker for many years in Sedona, Arizona.  However, it was not until I moved to Bozeman and began working in a Funeral Home that I was inspired to make keepsake jewelry for those who have lost a loved one.

The silver material I work with lends itself beautifully to this task.  All of my pieces are made of Fine Silver, which means it is .999% pure silver.  The cremated remains of your loved one are not put into a chamber.  They are combined with the silver itself, so that they become an integral part of the piece. The pieces are hung on Italian Sterling Silver chains, unless otherwise requested.

Each piece is made to order and I thrive on customizing each work of art to fit the desires of the wearer.
