In the Jewelry World, Natural Stones Rock!

Posted by on Oct 10, 2012 in Jewelry Making | Comments


In so many ways, we’re all going green and getting back to nature. We get all-natural and organic foods, we buy coffee in cups made from recycled material, and even our crafting reflects our love and appreciation for the earth. Knitters are using yarns from local sheep, dyed with vegetables, chefs are seeking out local in-season fare, and jewelry artists are using natural stones. It’s this latter example that we wanted to highlight in this post. As you can see on Pinterest, natural stones in jewelry are becoming quite the trend. And the same can be said for right here on Craftsy. To wit, check out some of these wonderful Craftsy members’ projects:

Natural Stone Jewelry

The contrast of turquoise and lava rock is striking in this impressive necklace by Craftsy member MelAbrahamson. The matching earrings make the combination a real stunner.

Precious stones may be, well, precious, but this proves that pebbles have serious character! Featuring wire-wrapped copper, this project by Craftsy member Susan Bowerman is equal parts fun and style.

Simple, bold, and sophisticated: that’s what the agate and quartz bring to this elegant necklace from Craftsy member iaia.

    Yes, these stones are precious and they makes us look beautiful. But it is hard to find a location where we can get the jewellery having stones. I came to know about a fair where you can easily find them. To know more about the fair and jewellery click on it http://www.thegoldsmiths.co.uk/exhibitions-promotions/
