Perfect little labradorite ring with amazing green flash .... These rings are ideal for everyday wear because of the flat cut of the stone. If you wear gloves for work, this stone will not rip them +1skin-tone-3+1skin-tone-3+1skin-tone-3

About

My name is Kristina, and I am the owner and metalsmith of Apostrophie Jewelry. Using sterling silver, karat gold and vibrant, exotic natural stones I design and fabricate fine artisan pieces. Since 2008 I have practiced metalsmithing, having first picked up a torch and silver in Santa Barbara, California while working towards a Ph.D. in molecular biology. My studio is located in Butte (NOT pronounced "butt"!), Montana where I make jewelry part time, and work a "normal job".

There are many reasons why I make jewelry, a rich and functional art form. The first is my innate desire to explore the world of the tiny, whether by looking through the microscope or by making small jewelry objects. Second, I want to show you the stunning things Earth can do with dirt, water and time, which is why I seek out the most unique, rare semi-precious and precious natural gemstones. But perhaps most importantly, I love the idea that jewelry has been used as a form of symbology and empowerment for millennia. Customers tell me that my jewelry has empowered them in business meetings, Ph.D. defenses and marathons, and their pieces symbolize important life events. Jewelry is exquisite and luxurious, but I also believe that jewelry is powerful and profound. I hope that you find that strength and beauty in my work.
