A few weekends ago, I tagged along with Ashley Vick to the gem show in Marlboro. We waded through crowds of middle aged, bead frenzied women, and Ash was able to find these raw gems that were cut into cabichons. A week later, she came up with this beautiful jewelry. Since she wanted pictures of the jewelry before her craft show at Worcester Center for Crafts, and didn't have the time and money to blow on a professional photographer, I told her I'd give her a hand. We were pretty pleased with the outcome- It's amazing what you can do with rice paper, lots of tape, black plexiglass, a blue light, and a Canon Powershot point and shoot (and beautiful jewelry, of course!!!!!). You can visit her website and purchase her jewelry online at: www.filomenademarcojewelry.com, or you can see her in person at the Sowa Open Market on June 20. Check her website for upcoming shows, stores, and news.
