When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work. For me, making Wendy Gems is a fun way to express my creativity. I also find that it is a relaxing and satisfying craft. Years ago, my little boys were fascinated with the many beautiful, diverse rocks they found during our daily hikes. As they explored our Tahoe woods, they would stuff their pockets full of quartz and feldspar treasures. Routinely the dryer clanked like a rock tumbler, which also proved as an effective polishing method. Designing gemstone jewelry is an outgrowth of that passion. In 2011, I began creating unique, personal and handmade gifts for my family and friends. Their positive feedback encouraged me to start my home-based business as I continued another loving endeavor, homeschooling my boys. As they studied, I would sit with them and create jewel pieces using a variety of authentic and colorful elements. I have selected beautiful treasure from as far away as Brazil and most recently China, where I had the opportunity to hand select many strands of AAA ocean and freshwater pearls, which are exceptionally lustrous, uniform and delicately hued. These opulent pearls and glossy gems come together to make distinctive pieces. The metal components I prefer are Sterling Silver, 14k rose and yellow gold-filled locking leverbacks as these make my designs lovely, hypoallergenic, secure and affordable. It is my hope that you will find the quality of my workmanship as well as the beauty of these natural elements truly excellent. I enjoy making custom jewelry, so if you have an idea for a design that fits your unique flair, I would love to hear your ideas or help you repurpose your treasures to better fit your now-style. Let’s talk…  Sincerely, Wendy
