Our Story Starts with a Marriage
Waystone is a family founded and operated company. We opened up shop in 2019 at the edge of the western prairie Denver, Colorado.
But, our story really starts with a marriage.
When Leslie married Sean at Chief Hosa Lodge, she wanted to give her bridesmaids a personal gift to thank them for being a part of her wedding. While visiting the lodge before the wedding, she picked up a few stones that caught her eye. The small, speckled stones were ordinary rocks, rough and in irregular shapes. But she knew her mom, Beverly, a geologist with her own jewelry studio, could turn them into something special.
Beverly polished the stones and corded them onto necklaces, encapsulating a special moment into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The bridesmaids adored them, and the family knew they were onto something special.
Peter, Leslie’s father and a seasoned engineer, began to develop tools that could take any stone and turn it into beautiful, custom jewelry. The rest of the family began building other aspects of the business. Little by little, Waystone was built.
Today, you can send us your rough, coarse, and jagged, or your smooth, sparkly, and rounded. Waystone can turn it into something you, or someone you care for, can wear on special occasions, or every day.
We live in a materialistic world, where we can easily end up surrounded by things that don't mean much to us.
We know this doesn't have to be the case. We want everyone to be able to create and give custom jewelry from their sentimental stones to hold onto the important moments in life.
Our people save stones from their kids' adventures, family property, big life moments, walks on any given night, or vacations.
There's no reason these moments shouldn't be heirlooms.
Thank you for trusting us with your stones. We know how special they are, and we can't wait to see how they'll look polished up and set in your design. What we do is special and meaningful because you're special and meaningful.
Thanks for letting us be a part of your life.
