haliagrace is a jewelry design and construction firm located in the western Catskills region of upstate New York. We make beautiful necklaces, earrings, and bracelets from precious and semi precious stones, sterling silver, and rose gold. We also play with resin and old maps, vintage dictionary pages, and tarot cards. Items for sale can be found on the Facebook page or instagram account. And yes, we do custom work too!
Heather Rolland is the royal "we" behind haliagrace. After a 16 year career in the mental health and addiction fields, Heather left the world of diagnosis and treatment. At first a refugee from all that, Heather immersed herself in stones and silver wire, beading her way back to her own mental health.
Hiking and photography are key components of Heather's creative process. She hikes 4 or so miles daily with her canine companions, photographing rocks, fungus, wildlife, trees and bark, and anything else that crosses her path or catches her glance. It is this daily walking meditation of sorts (interspersed with much yelling -- "get out of there! stop rolling in that! leave the porcupine alone!") that informs her work.
No, it isn’t “flashy.” It isn’t “bling.” But it is deeply, reverently, and passionately Catskills.
