⛈It’s difficult to articulate what it feels like if you’ve never been caught in a monsoon, but the power, smell of rain, and relief they bring to the heat of the day is absolutely incredible⛈They’re a force to be reckoned with. ⚡️Sz 10 with raindrop morenci turquoise, message for details until it’s listed in the shop later today⚡️
Face Polished Chrysocolla Specimen from Morenci, Arizona
If you know anything about Chrysocolla, you know that it's an extremely soft mineral. And while most of the pieces of Chrysocolla that I've seen come out of the Morenci, Arizona location have some of the best color around, it often breaks apart and crumbles into smaller pieces. But this piece held together through the polishing process and is one of the biggest specimens from this famous location that I've ever seen! The color is completely natural with amazing patterns and swirls throughout.
Totally one of a kind!
Polished in house here in Madison, WI

***'Artist' Rant*** I finished this ring two nights ago and immediately wanted to go show my friends at the bar they work at. As soon as I walk in and show a small group of people, their friend sitting at the table with them asks; "okay, let me see that." after several of the people at the table took notice and appreciation. This jack ass proceeds to insult my work immediately upon holding it. Telling me it isn't worth a THIRD of what I told them the price was and that my ""welds" were bull shit". Also, that "any old lady could see that". Given this gentlemen was simply another ignorant, bitter, native that I'm sure deep down was more upset that I'm not full Navajo making better Navajo style jewelry than himself or anyone he knows personally.
I know I shouldn't let these types of peoples opinions bother me but, FUCK, that shit hurt. Badly. That's the type of shit that can make an artist hate their work. Even hate themselves. If someone shows you art they made, even if it sucks, be respectful and don't shit on them and their passion.

Holy cats, you guys!!! There is only ONE piece left from last nights update and it’s this beauty of a necklace. I named her Effervescence because it’s the most bubbly, electric piece of malachite/azurite I’ve seen. This stone was mined years ago in Morenci, Arizona by my boss over at @bluestonegems. It has stayed in his collection only until recently when we got our mitts on it and gave it a good polish, leaving half of it in its rawest, purest form. That means, it’s only been in possession of 3 hands. The earths, his, and mine. Pictures cannot do this piece justice, but take a gander at the photos on the website for closeups. I’ll be accepting payment plans on it in just a few hours, so if you are interested, let’s get you on that list! Thank you SO much for your support! I am beyond happy that so many of you can connect with my work in a way that speaks to you.

Well these are new... I have to tell you I’m a little in love with a few of these. The depth in the red Agate is just astounding and the pair of native copper & Morenci Jasper is surprising. I have no idea what that lovely purple stone with a green stream is, but it’s cool! Should have another handful done tomorrow- and some neat pieces for sure. The next stone sale will be on July 4th! I’ll be starting this one early- at 11am PST (2pm EST). That way no ones trying to buy stones when they ought to be watching fireworks 💥 I’ll also be selling some slabs in this sale- Washington State material such as cardinal jasper, garnierite, and jade. Who knows what else will come off the saw before then!! #freshoffthesaw#washingtonstatefinds#cabsforsale#morenci#nativecopper#agate#jasper#turquoise
Yesterday myself and @erika_sanders made a quick to Queen Creek for one awesome training session from the one and only @jack.attacks.life
Definitely feeling grateful for this opportunity. I really can’t wait to see what is next!
