The diversity of stone shapes, sizes and color provides limitless designs. Carefully selecting specific material and designing jewelry based on the qualities of that piece is part of the creative experience. The mounting and accent highlight the special features of each piece. Like sea glass, the asymmetry of the material leads to the creation of unique, attractive and interesting designs.
In addition to mineral gemstones, I’ve also included some man-made pieces in the gallery. These include cultured pearls, ancient roman glass and distinct or peculiar pieces that work well in a jewelry creation. Gem & Mineral Shows along with the internet makes shopping for gemstones a design inspiring experience.
