authentic Roman coins: Sunday, Jan 24, 2021!

When I say we...
Most of you know I'm a one woman show. There's so much to do and a limited amount of time and energy to devote. I've started doing stone sales for my students and this has expanded into the general public, but it's really time consuming. So...I'm very pleased to announce that my son, Jaron, has joined me. This is our second family business as Jaron is also a CIA (Culinary Institute of America) trained chef and owner of specialty wood fired oven, Stoked. In his slow season, he'll be managing stone sales for me. While I'm still getting to do the part that's the most fun...choosing and buying...he's in charge of most everything else. This is a great addition to my little biz and will allow me more time to create, but still give you all the opportunity to grab some lovely stones. If you hear me talking about Jaron on my facebook page, or elsewhere, please give him a little handclap and a welcome!

Sold out! Thank you so much!

 

Our next sale: right here, in the shop, Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021...at 2:00 pm, mountain time.

This next sale is something very special...not stones at all, but ancient Roman coins! I purchased a large lot of these coins from a reputable dealer and they're quite spectacular. The patina is amazing. There will be a variety of coins in various conditions and prices. These are all from approximately the 300's AD...around the time of Christ. I'm no coin expert but I've described them as best I could, based on my research. I believe them to be reasonable priced, as well. Enjoy!

Please do take a look at my policies page before attending the sale. I've got some tips there for successful shopping. Coins will be listed in the shop, under "sublime stones."

Just had to let you know that I received the earrings today (that I purchased from your etsy shop )and  I was totally, completely blown away by the beauty of these pieces!. Such exquisite craftsmanship and perfect choice of stones and metal in each piece. They are both unique and lovely in their own delicate way. I was so pleased by these pieces that I went back to your shop and purchased 2 more! Can't wait to see the next pairs of earrings I ordered..I'm sure I won't be disappointed!

These pieces have souls.  I'm not Christian, but in your jewelry I'm able to see the beauty, joy, connection, comfort and grounding your faith brings to you, and it's a beautiful thing to behold.

Just wanted to let you know that I received my beautiful earrings, and am happier than ever now that I see them in real life. They are truly beautiful! Thank you for taking the time, a long time ago, to talk to me about your creative process using religious items. You made me think and open my mind in a way that helped me to allow myself to be comfortable with my religion and who I am.  Your kind words and your blog are always inspiring.
