The highly acclaimed color company Pantone forecasted Rose Quartz at the IT color for 2016. We not only think it's a fabulous color for fashion and interior design, but also for jewelry! We have a huge selection of different cuts and shades of rose quartz. Whether you need rose quartz pairs and pendants for a matching set of earrings and necklace, or a strand of rose quartz faceted rondelles, or maybe a strand of smooth rounds, we have you covered!
Upcoming Findings Show
Many of our beautiful findings are handmade by skilled jewelers and artisans in Inida. Unfortunately due to the current Jeweler's Strike in India we were unable to have our Findings Show in April. However, the wait will soon be over and we will make it up to you with a massive Findings Show in May! In the world of jewelry-making, the right clasp can really turn a necklace into a masterpiece. Finding the perfect pair of earwires is as crucial as picking the right gemstones to create a beautiful pair of earrings.
Check out our new and improved Class Schedule!
Every week, we offer beginner jewelry making classes to those who have never made jewelry before, or for beaders who would just like to perfect their skills in bead stringing or wire wrapping. For students who have already mastered these skills, we also offer advanced jewelry making classes every week, such as Macrame on Sundays or Traditional Knotting on Tuesdays. Check out our new and improved class calendar to see new times, prices, as well as what each class entails.
Gemstone of the week: Pearls
A pearl is produced within the soft tissue of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate which has been deposited in concentric layers. The most valuable pearls occur spontaneously in the wild, but are extremely rare. Cultured or farmed pearls from pearl oysters and freshwater mussels make up the majority of those currently sold.
Brand New Mini Clinic!
If you are interested in learning specific jewelry techniques, but don't have time to sit in for a 90-minute class, then consider our new 20-minute lessons for $15. These quick lessons are more technique-oriented and less project-detailed. Check our schedule online to learn more and register for classes!
