Rock On

I love organic jewels. The beauty is in the imperfection and rawness. Rough cut diamonds. Geodes. Hammered gold and silver. I have a feeling Melissa Joy Manning and I have this in common. Her jewelry looks like it's been unearthed from millions of years of soft baked clay with grandma's fine sterling spoons. A chunk of stone + a splash of metal = an exquisite ring or pendant sparkling to drool over. OK, I'll take it!
