Hello and Welcome to my Gemflower™ Garden! Here you will find the entirely new and exclusive Gemflower™ Earrings, created with a multitude of wonderful hand-faceted gemstones, carefully made into blooming flowers earrings. They have completely Gold-filled earring studs with a generous stem. I’ve completed these floral earrings with the largest Gold-filled earring nuts (3/8″) available today. My experience in wearing them has been truly interesting. Everyone admires them, the colors, gems and the way they sparkle.
About the maker: I am a gardener, Gemologist and Jeweler. I use all my experience in the jewelry trades, combining my love of stones and flowers, to produce them. To my knowledge, the extremely complicated method I use to invisibly put together as many as 15 beads on each earring is completely original and new. Most of the Gemflowers™ earrings are one-of-a- kind pairs. The Gemflowers™ range in diameter from the size of a dime to a bit over the size of a quarter.
Enjoy browsing through the the Gemflower™ Garden, picking your favorite flowers and/or gemstones! I have collected every type of hand-cut specialty gemstone available. I even had some gem shapes especially cut for the Gemflowers. New pairs are added often, so please return often.
Do you need a Gemflower™ pair to match a particular outfit? If so, please call me or email, and we’ll create one together. I can also meet with you and your garden club, or floral business associates to show the current collection of Gemflowers™ in your home or office in either Sonoma or Marin counties in California. In person, the Gemflowers are even more awesome.
In the Hoops Court you’ll find beautiful gemstone beads and pearls, in all different combinations, that I carefully select and hand-wire onto the gold-filled hoops with gold-filled wire. You can choose your favorites by stone, color, and/or size of hoop. I can also custom-make any gemstone hoops for you. My current custom-made waiting list is 6 days.
In the Bead Meadow, you can wander among several gemstone necklaces and bracelets that I have designed and made. Most jewelry in Bead Meadow is one-of-a-kind. The multiple strand bracelets are on magnetic column closures, and also entirely of gemstones.
At Pearl Pond is Pearl jewelry, including some spectacular, multi-strand pearl necklaces with larger sterling silver clasps. They’d be perfect to wear out to dinner, or to anywhere special. They light up the face like theatre footlights.
In the HANGING GARDENS you will find all my original flower and nature inspired dangle earrings, using gold-filled, or sterling silver, and inspired by current and future fashion. I’m always experimenting with new designs and adding to this Section, including designs made with my own special-ordered gemstone beads.
Relax and enjoy wandering around my ARTLOOK GEM GARDEN.
