Polished stones are always nice to look at. Wearing a polished stone is one of the oldest and most meaningful ways to ornate ourselves. Always unique, semi precious stones are a great way to accent an ensemble or make a truly individual fashion statement.
Metal smithing has become a side hobby to my primary hobby of cutting stone. Creating jewelry is a natural progression to finishing a cabochon. I use several types of metals in my jewelry including; silver, brass, copper, and nickel. Note that about 10% of the population is allergic to nickel silver so I have included a warning on every piece that contains the sensitive metal.
