I retired after 35 wonderful years in sales positions with various companies. Retirement has been an opportunity to explore and learn new things. Jewelry making is something I have always been interested in and transitioning this fun into a small business venture came naturally.
Earrings have always been my favorite piece of jewelry and I love adding color to fashion through them. I find beautiful and unique earrings in boutiques but they are often made of only metal and don’t bring out the color sensations I desire.
Many "semiprecious" stones are more rare than precious stones and are found in fewer number of locations and produced in smaller quantities than any of the "precious" stones. Semiprecious stones include gemstones fashioned from: agate, amazonite, amethyst, aquamarine, aventurine, chalcedony, chrysocolla, chrysoprase, citrine, garnet, hematite, jade, jasper, jet, kunzite, labradorite, lapis lazuli, malachite, moonstone, obsidian, onyx, peridot, rhodonite, sunstone, tiger's eye, tanzanite, topaz, turquoise, tourmaline and many other materials.

Gemstones are divided into "precious" and "semiprecious" and give some the idea that "precious stones" are more valuable, rarer, and more beautiful than "semiprecious stones." Value and beauty are both properties that are based upon the opinion of the observer.
A person who is purchasing an item of jewelry should not be influenced by the names "precious" and "semiprecious." Instead they should focus on what gemstone appeals to them, suits their intended use, and has a price that they are willing to pay. RockTumbler.com
