Seeing the pictures, I was afraid it would be too big but the size is actually perfect and there is not a single default on the horn or the golden part that shines beautifully without looking cheap. I am very happy with this necklace, makes me feel fierce, thank you ! Also it was well packed and arrived quickly.

About

Carrying on a Family Passion

I owe my passion to rocks and jewelry to my grandparents, for whom my shop is named (Lavern+Geraldine=Lavine). They had a passion for art of any kind, but had a special love of stones and jewelry. They travelled the country collecting stones...actually digging and pulling rocks from the earth, and bringing them back home to cut. In 2003, my grandmother passed away, and I was desperate to make sure I spent as much time with my then 87 year old grandfather as possible. I asked him to teach me to cut stones. The process was not only exciting and memorable for me, but I think it was also therapeutic to him as well. I was a natural at cutting a cabochon, and that's how I got hooked.
Now, fourteen years later, I have immersed myself in jewelry and metal-working classes, and turned a hobby into a side business.
My jewelry studio is in my garage, so whenever I feel inspired, I can go to work. Cutting stones and shaping metal are therapeutic to me. I love seeing something that starts out plain and uninteresting take shape into something beautiful.

    I have been cutting stones for 14 years, a trade that my grandfather taught me. I picked up jewelry making 6 years ago as a way to enjoy the beautiful stones. I live on the beautiful central coast of California with my husband and two little boys.
