DesertRose:::Handcrafted Jewelry by Polly Wale: Lost wax casting techniques are paired with fine gem stones. Polly uses sapphires & rubies directly cast into gold, creating pieces that resemble natural gem encrusted forms, like sparkling geodes split open. This unorthodox process is unique to her & has become her signature style, gaining her international recognition.
cabochon of rhodochrosite, from Argentina, with PLUMES! At one side, this outstanding stone features wavy bands of glowing pink coloration. And the other side has honey-colored gel (calcite), very gemmy & translucent, which contains several beautifully ornate plumes with ghostly fortifications. Separating the two zones is a scalloped band of cream, with fancy little figures that resemble buds.
