Hello, I'm Sheila Johnston
I love the joy and excitement of travel. There's little better for me than the rush to your senses you feel when you step off the airplane to explore some place exotic and new. My most vivid memory of this kind of experience was the first time I landed in Mexico. Many years ago I went there for an emmersion stay to learn Spanish. At the time I had never experienced anything quite like it. I knew that at some point in my life I wanted to create a business that not only quenched my thirst for travel, but that made a connection between the country where I live and the other countries where I love to travel. The photo below is from Panama.
I love using an extensive variety of opals for my jewelry. Most I bet you've never seen before!

No opal jewelry collection would be complete without opals from Australia. Janice Evert crafts stunning pieces with Queensland Boulder Opals in sterling silver.
