I am a rock nerd, a gem addict, a voracious reader of the Wonderful written word in all formats and genres, a writer of stories and poems, a lifelong champion for the underdog, and eternally drawn to the magic and allure of all things strange and unusual.

I love this beautiful necklace. It is exactly like the photo. The workmanship is very well done and the stone is a perfect shape for a pendant. Thank you!!

About

Rock Nerd

I never knew, growing up, that I was a rock nerd....I just knew that the rocks and stones that I collected and kept in my treasure box, filled me with wonder,and an ethereal happiness that I still can't explain....
Just as I am mesmerized by a piece of quartz, turning it around and around, holding it up to the light, for hours on end, wanting to see every last magical inclusion and familiarize myself with every nuance of shape and texture, my exploration becomes a kind of meditation that calms my mind, allowing me to focus everything on the stone itself.
I can proudly say I am a rock nerd because I now know that is what I have always been. I am usually found in my little studio, drooling over fossils, swooning over crystals, doing handstands over gemstones ( I really can't do handstands, but if I could, I would!)

Welcome to my shop, Gem and Metal Designs.
