Announcement    Happy Spring Earth Enthusiasts & guess what's NEW at Raw Opal on Etsy?
FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING ya'll!
___><___
NEWLY LAUNCH | Raw AA Grade Emerald Chokers from Socoto, Bahia Brazil and hand split & set by yours truly ;-)
__><__
A little bit about my mission ::
I specifically source raw stones only from non-conflict areas around the world. I prefer to hand cut my stones and crystals to ensure every pair of earrings is complimentary, bobbies are bold and can be worn either together or individually and that all of my rings are visually stunning while remaining emboldened by their setting. I believe in keeping my negative footprint to an absolute minimum and go the extra lengths to use all recycled packaging materials and gift wrapping papers.
___><___
CUSTOM orders are my specialty, so if you have a favorite stone please contact me and I will happily research the corners of the earth for your preference in ethically mined minerals & crystals. I also support other local & small business and gladly do so in the acquisition of all my other materials. --> guilt free & bold statement pieces here <--

About

east coast creator, aka earth-conscious enthusiast making ethically sound raw stone accessories

r a w _ o p a l ><>< my geo jewelry & accessories are an ode to the earth and all of it's uncovered treasures. intensity, chaos and bold changes have occurred for millions and in some cases billions of years to form the minerals we mine from our earths' crust. each stone is intrinsically unique and i have the honor to split open and hand cut every piece. i take on great lengths of research to source my stone specimens from no-conflict mines around the world, ensuring that every stone came from a source where the miner is paid a fair and proper wage. my metalsmiths and other collaborative small business friends are all single origin suppliers with artisanal skills. i find it so important to support small business and individual talent, whilst keeping my business a low waste, high ethics operation. my raw stone pieces are both one of a kind and also made to order, using genuine and rare raw stones and true dedication. i want you to feel just as good for wearing my raw stone pieces as i do making them.

Raw Opal is my true passion and every single piece is given undivided attention to visual appeal and quality. I wrap every pair like a gift, however with minimal waste. My hope is to leave a lesser footprint on our beautiful planet.

As a single mom with my own chaotic backdrop, I get to not just stay at home and enjoy those precious moments where my little begs me for muffins, or wants to jar a lightning bug, but I also get to show him how to use his imagination and craft something using your hands.

Live life unpolished.
