This is a beautiful necklace and just what I was looking for. It is not big and clunky but just as described, delicate and simple. I love it!

These are beautiful! Not too big and not sparkly, which is what I was looking for. They are just fancy enough for the dress I am wearing to my brother's outdoor wedding. Love them!

Wearing colorful gems is like having your own little fraction of the rainbow.
Hi, I'm Mary.
There's an old saying that each Opal contains a fraction of the rainbow. I like that idea, and I would add, wearing beautiful gemstones, in all their rich hues, is having your own fraction of the rainbow.
For years I've had a passion for gems and jewelry. I wanted great quality, at a price that fit into my real life. And that's what I work every day to bring to you.
If you don't have time to seek out the best natural stones at accessible prices, or know the difference between .925 Sterling silver and silver filled, I do.
If you don't know that even many mainstream jewelry companies are selling you lab created gems with only teeny tiny fine print that discloses they aren't mined from the ground stones, I do.
That's why I'm here. I work to make elevated jewelry that fits into your budget and your life. You deserve pieces that make you feel beautiful every day, not just on special occasions. I want you to have the kind of quality that sometimes seems out of reach, so I'm constantly gathering natural gemstones, art glass lampwork beads, and high quality elements to turn into jewelry that will enhance your style for years to come. Helping you find the right pieces for your collection is what drives me.
When you look at an item in my shop, please know that the item in the first few photos is the exact item you are buying. (sometimes I use a group shot or model shot of a sample as photos further down the row) That's different from the typical online experience. Commercial retail vendors, even high end sellers, make a sample then have it produced in batches or in bulk. Even a lot of Etsy sellers make their sample, photograph it, then create your actual piece AFTER you buy. That's completely within their right, it's just not how I want my shop to work. I'm a visual person. I like to see the actual item I'm buying. And because natural gems are unique I want you to see your actual stones. It's worth it to me to invest more time taking photos, if that helps you make an informed choice. I've made your jewelry with care, photographed it, and then listed it, for you to discover - not just made it to fulfill an order. It's ready to be packaged and sent off to you right away.
My shop may never be huge, but my vision isn't about being the biggest Etsy seller. It's about being Your Favorite Etsy seller.

Long time lover of colorful gems, shimmering crystals & rich metals. A bit of a magpie if I’m honest. At times I must remind myself that gems aren’t just for me, they’re meant to be made into lovely things sent out into the world, for you to enjoy!
A Scrappy fellow from the mean streets of Texas who acclimated quickly to a life surrounded by sparkly gems & strands of chain. Perry enjoys luxury & you should too!
