So many of the projects and artists that are featured here on Beading Arts use gemstones and/or pearls, but I don't think that we've ever actually devoted an entire month to just celebrating them in all their variety and splendor. Because of the costs involved, most of us probably stick with semi-precious gemstones, but I will be featuring artists this month who use everything from humble river stones to finely cut diamonds. The common denominator is that the work is artist designed and handmade, not mass-produced.
Do you work with gemstones or pearls? Then I want to hear from you and have you share your work! It doesn't matter if you do stringing, wire wrapping, embroidery, weaving, or something else entirely...we want to see what you've made. Just email me at cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces) and let me know what you'd like to share...there's always room for more!
