In this gallery of previous work, I encourage you dear reader, to consider the work on this page as a source of inspiration for your own custom piece. Do you have a stone you’d like to have wrapped but need some help with the wrap style? Perhaps you’d like a stone that’s a little more down to earth and without the sparkle and glitz. Could I interest you in a natural creation by our earth mother that’s still incredible (see above photo)?
A recent visit to the west coast rewarded me with a lovely collection of polished beach stones in a wide assortment of colors and patterns. These almost-cabochons are getting a final polish in my tumbler as of 9/23/21 and all of them will be suitable and available for wrapping by the end of November, 2021. A cabochon, in case you don’t already know, is just a gemstone that is polished but not faceted. It’s possible that if some time has passed since this writing, that some of these lovely stones have already been sold or wrapped.
Now a gemstone by definition, is any crystalline mineral which is highly prized for its beauty, durability, and rarity, but a few non-crystalline materials of organic origin like pearl, red coral, and amber are also classified as gemstones.
It is my opinion that gemstones as defined above are so commonly used in jewelry that it would be uncommon to see beach stones used in pendant jewelry and therefore more unique than store bought jewelry. They are of course more affordable than true gemstones, and I am delighted to make public this huge assortment of polished beach stones. I have a large selection of true gemstones as well, including but not limited to emeralds, turquoise, aquamarine, amethyst, and rutilated quartz. Additionally, many of these gemstones are certified as genuine earth-mined crystals, so you can feel great about the authenticity of your gem. Feel free to ask about availability.
