South Pacific Carved Gems

I have a wonderful friend who lives with his family in Bali and brings beautiful gems to the Tucson show every other year. He has just a small bag of gorgeous stones that he taught the artisans in his shop how to cut. Each one is unique, and many contain pretty sparkling druzy crystals. He told me a story of how he went from island to island in Indonesia, visiting the villages and asking to see unusual stones they might have discovered nearby. When one villager brought him a sample of beautiful purple, gem-quality chalcedony, he mined it out, replaced the forest, and then had his artists carve the stone into beautiful shapes. Any one of these unique, lyrically beautiful pieces would make your jewelry designs sing!
