Echo of the Dreamer was started in 1993 by Margaret Thurman and her daughter Myoshin.
Although Margaret has been making jewelry for over 30 years, she considers this incarnation as a very
special one. According to Margaret, the two make quite a pair, physically and in most other ways they are
very different, which gives them the variety that they are known for. Delicate
and refined is Myoshin's forte, bold and dramatic is Margaret's. The middle
crossover areas are an intriguing blend of the two.
"Using natural materials we
create sculptural art to wear-subtle colorations, textures and harmonious forms.
We use gorgeous, exotic, and often very rare stones. One of my great joys is
discovering new stones, sometimes the deposit is very small and there will be a
limited number of useable stones. The piece we create using those rarities is
truly a collectors dream."
Margaret studied fine art with an
eccentric Bulgarian artist, Nicholai Abracheff, and Myoshin was a musician and
an actress. They take great joy in their craft, and hope you will enjoy it too.
