Thanks for visiting Kathy's Kreation

......Gary & Kathy started collecting rocks from around the Eastern US over 30 yrs ago. We would spend our 2 week vacation going to "mines" in New England, searching for diamonds in Arizona, amethyst in Thunder Bay, Michigan, and many other places.

......We found lots of "leave-r-rights" (means leave it right there!) which might be pretty, but not worth doing anything with except leave it for the next collector. The kids loved digging for rocks and sometimes found better specimens than we did!

......Our living room is proof of these trips. There are twelve, yes, 12 shelves with rocks on them - tourmaline, quartz, garnets, apetite, amethyst and more - with pictures of the 3 granddaughters between them.

......Kathy's Kreation is a team effort. My husband Gary and I are both retired, and enjoy working together to create unique pieces. Gary is a skilled, highly-acclaimed faceter, who has faceted hundreds of gemstones. I design unique presentations for our stones and gems.
......Gary and I have both been involved with lapidary for over 30 years. We both belong to and teach at the Tuscarora Lapidary Society (TLS) located in Brookhaven, PA. Their site is www.Lapidary.org classes are taught 4 times a year - expert teachers are volunteers interested in spreading the art of lapidary.

......Gary has been faceting for 30 years and has been teaching at TLS for over 20 years. He is a Master Gemcutter. His contributions to Kathy's Kreation are his many exquisitely faceted gemstones. Now that Gary has a Fantasy Machine from UltraTec, you'll be amazed at the new designs he is making.

.......If you have a cabochon or faceted stone that you would like wirewrapped either in Sterling Silver, Silver filled, Gold filled or Argentium, I'll be glad to do it for you. You can either design the setting yourself or send me a picture of what you'd like or pick a design from something on Kathy's Kreation.
