Welcome to

da  ROCKMAN

    Hello,  I have been amazed by stones as far as I can remember. I collected rocks throughout my childhood and teen years but did not know a lot about what I was doing.   Many years go by and its October of 1990. I stopped in at the Portland Regional Rock show held at the Expo Center here in Portland, and I was just really blown away at what I saw. All the different types of Rocks, Crystals, Fossils, etc. all in one place, some on display, others for sale. I had to find out more about how and where to find some for myself. I soon joined a couple local Rock Clubs and that was just the beginning. I was soon out in the field, collecting some nice material. As the months passed, my collection grew and was soon selling some at our Club Show and other events as well. I did that part-time until 1996, and it was then I started selling full-time, and have never looked back.  Rocks are my passion, and just love field collecting and then working/preparing them at home.      I started my “Stone Pendant” line around 1998 and now they are a big part of my business.    Here are several examples of my Pendants and some very COOL stones for Your viewing pleasure.  Most of them are for sale,  please contact me if You have any questions.      

     Lastly, some photos of collecting adventures I have been on,  what a blast !!!

  

       * (next 5 page's) I love kayaking as well, so I put several photos of      

       kayaking adventures I have been on in the last few years.  Enjoy!!!
