About

Minerals are our friends!

Jimmy and I have always loved anything and everything to do with Minerals, Fossils, Gems, Cabochons and Jewelry. When we were talking to a very good friend, Janet Myers, (Ladygemologist on Etsy), she said, "Let me help you get started on Etsy, people will love the cabs that you cut." That day was the start of our Etsy experience and what a ride it has been. We love Etsy and all the artists within who have become our friends. It gives us joy to see others create jewelry from the raw materials that we mine and cut here in sunny Arizona. We enjoy our life and are thankful to Etsy for allowing us to continue to do the things we love.

    I married a "Rock Man". Jimmy showed me the joy of collecting and cabbing and now I love to create stones and put them on Etsy for artists to make into fantastic jewelry. Nature is so amazing!!!

    I am fortunate to be living in a mineralogist's dream. I have loved rocks since playing in a sandbox in Pennsylvania as a kid and now the whole Southwest is my sandbox. Discovering and Creating Gems with my cabbing machine really "Rocks".
