WELL, I'VE GOT TIME….SO TELL ME EVERYTHING.
With a busy career in technology, I was craving the creative. My outlet was my desire to learn about gemstones, which originated with my Grandmother, Dorothy. I never had plans to make a career change, I just loved and enjoyed learning about gemstones.
For years, I spent my vacation time, spare time, weekends, and any spaces in between studying and completing lab courses at the Gemological Institute of America. I earned a Graduate Degree in Diamonds, Colored Stones, and Pearls. I became an accredited jewelry professional, attended gem shows and started repurposing my own hand-me-down jewelry from Dorothy and having them created into new designs I envisioned.
When my daughter was born, I knew she needed to be surrounded by the energy of gemstones. I was still deep in my gem studies at the time and we began living with gems and crystals in our home decor and incorporating them into our everyday life. She inspired me and Sparkle Style was created and lifestyle ideas began to percolate.
My first Sparkle Style ideas beyond apparel, jewelry and decor, were centered around beauty products. I researched metaphysical properties and the energies they evoked. My fascination with creative gemstone combinations took over and I began to pursue different product ideas.
Next... a big life event occurred…
We moved our family to the Island of Kaua’i, the most beautiful and energetically charged place I have ever been! Not long after the move, we purchased a professional level camera. Of course I was excited to capture our life adventures, but more thrilled to capture intricate images of gemstones.
I had always enjoyed taking pictures of gemstones and my iPhone could never really see inside them as well as the GIA microscope :) but the facets and reflections would give me beautiful colors in my pictures.
What would the gemstones look like with this camera and a macro lens that can get super close-up? Would it be like looking through my gem loupe? What would the gems look like if I put them into rainbow spectrum? I was determined to find out!
Like a snowflake or fingerprint, all stones have identifying markers which make them unique. These inclusions and blemishes are the original gemstone signatures which intrigue me the most. It is is their GEMetic code! I began photographing them...
Photographing the gemstones in this fashion I could see more clearly and deep into the specimens than ever before. The images they created not only showed their inclusions, but their genetic/lab make-up and raw patterning.
This was their Sparkle Style!
I am thrilled to share my gemstone/crystal/glitter artwork imagery with you and hope you enjoy incorporating gemstones into your everyday life in a new way. Wear your favorite gems, glitter and GEMetic Code patterns for work or play. Décor and Jewels are on the way!
