Yes, you can have quality gemstone jewelry and other genuine handcrafted items - and still save money! I use components that are of the same or higher quality than most artisan jewelers and crafters. When I say it's turquoise, it's not that great turquoise imitator, dyed magnesite or howlite. When I say I made a piece with pearls, they are genuine B or A grade pearls, not artificial ones. If I do decide to make an item with any artificial parts, I state that plainly up front.

Since 2004, I've developed my business on the idea of making classic coordinated gemstone ensembles that are durable, comfortable to wear, and beautiful. I often search estate sales for components. I buy U S military veterans' beads, cabochons and components, then bring new…

Since 2004, I've developed my business on the idea of making classic coordinated gemstone ensembles that are durable, comfortable to wear, and beautiful. I often search estate sales for components. I buy U S military veterans' beads, cabochons and components, then bring new designs into being.

U S Military Veteran customers receive a 50% discount on any item. Part of qualifying as a veteran in this sense, is that you have an honorable discharge. I may ask for a redacted copy of your DD214 in order to qualify you for the discount.

If you see an item that attracts your eye, but is not quite what you're looking for, let me know. I usually have components left over from major projects. I may be able to make what you want, however, it is on a totally "as possible" basis.

Personally, I have a baccalaureate in geology from the University of Oregon, and I love the study and history of mineralogy, crystallography, statigraphy and petrography. I love science and hope you enjoy my site.
