Doug and Colleen's Profile
Welcome to Gems of the Northwest!
We are gem seekers! Our craft is transforming gemstones from the Pacific Northwest and beyond into FOCAL BEADS and CARVED STONES made primarily from Oregon Opals, Northwest Plume Agate and Northwest Jasper.
We were established in 2000 as, Cascade Gems, based on years of mining, collecting and cutting stones. In 2011, we opened our Etsy store, Gems of the Northwest. This was based on our decision to share some of our premier collection in the form of unique, meticulously cut or faceted polished focal stones. We have also begun to include jewelry options to assist in showcasing these natural untreated focal stones.
Part of our mission statement is based on creating stones that will unleash the creative talents of our customers…
