High quality handmade jewelry

Material of the day: rutilated quartz. The pieces here were all mined in Brazil in the 50’s. I purchased someone’s collection (about 50 lbs!) over a year ago. All of the different rutilated plugs you’ve seen here were made from this collection. So much variation between each piece. Most of it with some degree of smoky in it. When people ask for a quote, there’s normally a range of low to high grade.  You can’t really buy this stuff anymore, so I’m admittedly hoarding it like a true rock collector. Look at that softball sized hexagon in the middle!  Available for plugs and cabs.  So many great cutoffs suitable for whatever jewelry project.

Question with 1 note

purrrrevil said: Is it possible to buy those blue lace agate 1" plugs? They're so beautiful.

Sorry to say no, those were custom commissioned as most of the other stuff post on here.  It’s also the end of that material on hand.

Eternity Snakes

Shown here in sterling silver and oxidized sterling silver.  The gems are lab ruby, peridot, iolite, garnet, topaz color transition, and london blue topaz in brass (prototype from a few months ago).

The shape of the snake is inspired by Celtic manuscript illumination, going back to the Book of Kells. Letters or other shapes were transformed zoomorphically (into animals or with animal heads), giving new life to that letter or shape. In this case we are bringing a standard oval shape to the life of a snake or sea monster. The idea is to combine that concept with a high end hanging style/ear weight.

Conceptual body jewelry in it’s finest form.

With the exception of the topaz color transition, these are all available.  Please contact me direct with any questions.

Here’s a very nice set of two-toned ocean jasper in a 1” teardrop. The top half is hard jasper, while the green bottom is softer quartz. I didn’t realize it until shining a light through that the green is actually translucent with banding. Pretty rad stuff that I don’t think I’ll set my hands on again. Ocean jasper is one of those materials that’s been mined out, so whatever’s left is it! People eventually carve or sell their collections while it gets more and more scarce. We need to really appreciate how natural materials can actually run out and that all resources can be limited.
