This necklace is beautiful and exactly as described/pictured. I love doing business with this vendor because I can always be sure the quality is exceptional and the price is fair. I will purchase from Hot Rocks again.

Absolutely the most gorgeous item I have ever received from Etsy. Beautifully constructed---even prettier than the image. Wrapped, packaged and arrived promptly. I did overwhelm the seller with messages. She was kind and courteous, never showing disdain for my constant messages. I admire her for that.

Exactly as pictured and fine quality. This beautiful, well crafted piece exceeded my expectations. I will follow and buy more pieces.

Stunning. The setting accentuates the stones but isn't boring, like it has its own personality-- a living thing, even. I searched a long time for a piece of Mojave turquoise that suited me. It's mined in the desert where I was born.

This is art!!! Truly, beautiful! Both pieces are set perfectly in “picture frames”. The stones look like paintings and they are highlighted by the handmade settings. The ring has an amazing and substantial band so it feel ice in your finger. The bracelet fits perfectly! I had several questions and Christin went above and beyond to help me!! I look forward to shopping here again and again!! Beautiful hand crafted jewelry from a lovely shop! Bravo!

This pendant is the most extraordinary piece of art I’ve ever worn. Christin has such an eye for design that I’ve not seen anywhere else--even on Etsy! Her metalworking is also unparalleled. As soon as I saw this pendant, I fell in love. It is so unusual and captivating! The labradorite that Christin picked out is stunning with such a strong green and gold hue. It was exactly what I was looking for. This pendant has become basically an “everyday” pendant and I always get compliments on it! Thank you Christin for creating a wearable work of art! Buy from this seller, you will not regret it! :D
The Art of Jewelry and Self Discovery.
As a young girl I was fascinated with gemstones. Later on my son and I would collect different stones and use a rock tumbler to smooth and polish them.
As time went on I started beading and using wire to create jewelry. It is a continuing process of learning and experimenting that leads me to the jewelry I make today. The gemstones that I use in my designs are hand picked. After reviewing the potential positions of the stone for the best display in color I determine the design of the piece. Whether it be abstract, contemporary, traditional, Victorian or Boho.
One of my greatest joys is that handcrafting jewelry helped me find my birth family. It's a wonderful story that took me on a journey to Bergen Norway and lead me to my birth family after a 27 year search. And most welcome since I lost most of my adoptive family by the time I was 34.
I am truly blessed and grateful.
