About

Stonecraft Jewelry is the creative effort of me, Shelly Sauder of Toronto, Canada. This means I am 'Chief-in-Charge' of creative direction, selection of the most beautiful and best quality materials, excellent craftsmanship, and ... CUSTOMER BLISS.

The pieces I list on Etsy are slightly more fanciful, with a lavish use of precious materials, but at much lower prices than the jewelry I sell in boutiques around Toronto - the fashion capital of Canada.

My favourite thing about Stonecraft Jewelry is the wonderful and ongoing relationships I enjoy with my customers, and I enjoy a great reputation for my commitment to customer satisfaction.

My pieces are inspired by materials I love. My designs are trend-setting rather than trend-following, and each piece is original, one-of-a-kind, and built to last.

** A word about my favourite stuff - gemstones!! ... each specimen has its own properties and geological history. Each natural stone whether it is high-cut, basic or rough, has its own character, vibration, and a way in which it is transformed by the light. It is said that natural gemstones have an effect on the way we channel energy and therefore .. on the way we 'feel'.

And furthermore ... what's the big deal about natural gemstones anyway?? Well, as opposed to manufactured goods (not that there's anything wrong with them) each gemstone is a piece of 'antiquity', a piece of something 'real'. Gemstones are ultimately in 'limited supply', and therefore your gemstones are as individual as you!

My preference is translucent gemstone, and the focus in my designs is to balance chunky with delicate. I enjoy using the 'slightly out of the usual' stones, and I have an extensive collection including some very mystical mysterious and primitively-cut, from very hard-to-get-to places around the world.

Keep an eye on my listings to see how I am encorporating these treasures into my designs and ... making them available to you!
