I discovered these amazing topaz organic raw stones in Tucson last February at the international gem show and couldn't wait to use them in a unique jewelry design. this necklace is the result and I really love the result. I have been looking at raw hammered stones ever since completely this piece and of course had to purchase some additional strands. Be on the lookout here and on my website and my etsy

I am pleased to announce my new website. I finally "bit the bullet" and decided it was time to get my very own website. I have been unhappy with all the new changes and restrictions on etsy that I decided it was time to invest in my own website. Even though I did not build this site on my own , I had no idea I would be spending 8 hours a day uploading tweeking and trying to promote this site. It has been quite a learning experience and I realize that this is an ongoing process.
I have put off this announcement beacuse I keep making changes to the site but I realized that this will be going on indefinately and I couldn't put this off forever. Also, it would be great to get feedback from all of you . Perhaps you have struggled with this yourself and will have some great suggestions.
