Rustic Gemstone Jewelry

Available at ChrysalisToo on Etsy!

Your first impression might be that "rustic gemstone" is sort of an oxymoron, that the terms are a bit contradictory? My gemstone jewelry uses cut stones in a rustic style of design, combining them with artisan copper or Sterling silver. The pieces are range from dressy to casual; there is something for every occasion. And by the way, any of the gemstone selections would make a great holiday gift for that someone special on your list this year!!!

Earlier this year, I began a collection of rustic gemstone jewelry, all using copper and gemstones entitled The Apostle Islands Collection. This piece features cube cut fluorite stones with apatite. I am in love with this concept and continue to add to this popular collection with new varieties of gems. Soon to come, chrysocolla and more sunstone pieces.

A simple earring design of hammered and heat patinated copper with cube cut fluorite gemstones.

This style lends itself well to customization. These pieces work well with copper, and also with Sterling silver. So if you have an idea for a personally customized piece with your choice of metals, I would love to hear from you. I have a good selection of chalcedony, labradorite and garnet, citrine, green amethyst and more.

This beauty is a combination of sunstone with labradorite with wonderful artisan copper focal piece. I just received a shipment of small faceted sunstone beads and briolettes, so if this is one of your favorites. contact me for a custom piece.
