Lita with some of her favorite things.

We were recently saddened to learn that our dear and faithful member, Lita Petrovic, was diagnosed with cancer and has had a very difficult time in recent days.  We were equally pleased to hear that she has been released from the hospital and has returned to her home. 


Lita is a woman of extraordinary talent.  She maintains two shops on Etsy. 

While her stores are currently on vacation….here is a little of what she has to say about her work.


“I am a silversmith/lapidary artist and I love making beautiful adornments for the body! The beauty in Nature lends me inspiration and I am driven by the natural beauty of what Mother Earth provides. I knew when I was a child that one day I would be a silversmith. My parents always told me to follow my dream and I did. It took a while before I could finally reach my goal in life, but happy to say I finally did.

Many of my creations feature my hand stamped artistry. I love to create designs with my wonderful collection of steel stamps. Some stones speak for themselves and I like to set these to stand alone. Each piece speaks to me and I visualize it first then I make it come to life. I am very proud of my beautiful stone and rock collection and work each one when they are ready to come alive. Usually, they dance and sing and at that point I know they are ready.

My silver shines like no other due to my high polish technique. A piece of polished silver that is worn will take on its own patina over time. Working silver is my love and my full-time profession and I never met a rock I did not like! I also love to work with the old Railroad Dining Car china. I just love the history behind it all.
