Hi! How is your holiday season going? I have been going to rock shops in CA and UT, Gem and Mineral Shows, and Bead Shows. I like to hand pick the gem stones I work with. My favorite type of gem stones are raw gem stones. I enjoy picking up a raw gem stone and deciding where the stone could be wrapped, either with sterling silver or copper wire. I also use square wire. It is fun to twist it and use it in the design. Free form wrapping is my favorite. Each wrapping turns out differently, depending on the stone. Here are several examples:

Pink, green and white Tourmaline stone
