This is a really beautiful pair of earrings with natural stones of lavender aqua and sea green. It's made well and the stones look stunning in the order they are arranged, and the sizes of the stones look great together. Not everyone has an eye for that, so the creator of these earrings really is an artist. I love these earrings!

Crazy lace agate is lovely to work wth, as it's such a versatile gemstone. For this eclectic, casually elegant necklace we combined it with Swarovski crystals and copper.
For either woman or man who likes boho tribal style, earthy gemstone jewelry and just a touch of the primitive, our desert jasper stone bracelet brings them all together! African copper trade beads add their rustic charm to the rich brown palette.

About

Yankee Ingenuity, the "Make Do" Philosophy ...

... and the Spirit of Rough Magic

When my husband Joe and I named our fledgling jewelry design venture "Rough Magic Creations," we were thinking of the materials we use in our designs. The "rough" would be Maine's natural treasures - shells, pine cones, birch bark. The "magic" would be gemstones, pearls, sterling silver.

Soon our concept, based on a line from Shakespeare's play "The Tempest," began to apply equally to the tools and equipment we use to bless something rough with a touch of magic.
With limited resources, we decided to "make do" and apply some of the famous "Yankee ingenuity" that Joe, a native Mainer, mastered at his father's knee.

So, to practice some basic skills before investing in costly sterling silver, I bought a roll of hardware store copper. Ruined the entire roll. Bought more rolls. Ruined them. Bought more, and more, and kept buying and trying, until I learned to control that wily stuff. Then the unexpected happened. I fell in love. With copper. Now nothing feels quite so at home in my hands as that humble, warm and forgiving hardware store metal.

We also "made do" when choosing tools.
A geriatric ball peen hammer, long declared useless, found it's way into our kit. A 19th century flat iron became our anvil. For crafting cuffs and bangles, we upcycled an egg shaped rock from our garden. The business end of a turkey baster served for making rings. For buffing and filing, I raided my manicure set. A few miscellaneous nails served to punch holes.

As Rough Magic has grown, we've added some dedicated jewelry maker's inplements to our workshop. But you know, we still find ourselves reaching for those early "make do" tools. Again, nothing else feels quite so at home in our hands.
