DVHdesignsLAPIDARY's Shop Announcement

In addition to everything here, look for my bargain auctions on eBay and special items in Squareup! Find links to all three platforms on my DVHdesigns website. I can combine shipping from multiple platforms!

Welcome to DVHdesigns BEADS on etsy! I'm David V. Horste and I've loved rocks, sparkly things, and ornament forever. I starting cutting stones when I was 10 (back in 1976!) and started silversmithing when I was 12. I have been a full time lapidary since late 1992, but quit the silversmithing by the mid '90's. My work went from freeform cabochons to mostly focal beads. I'm known as a "rogue lapidary" because while my work is mostly in "semi-precious" gemstones, I also work in non-traditional materials like bowlerite, fordite, boat-paintite, organic gemstones like jet and fossil ivory, and other odd treasures I can get my hands on! I pride myself on not just cutting original, top quality, focal beads, but also on providing my customers with as much accurate information as possible about the materials I use.

Occasionally I will do custom orders. If you have questions about my work or materials just contact me. Please feel free to like my DVHdesigns page on Facebook!
