Artist Spotlight: Part Ninety-Seven

This week, I'm bringing back an old favorite of mine, John Rasmussen, of Rasmussen Gems.  If you've been following along, you've met this Rensslaer graduate geologist here several times before, together with his wife, Deborah, the beader in the family.  They've been busy with new pieces, and they're just as breathtaking as ever.

This rock crystal pendant is certainly on my wishlist.  Just look at it!

On the other hand, in my world you can't go wrong with rubies, my birthstone.  These pretty little ones are the perfect frame for this morganite ring.

I still have a thing for more natural-cut stones, though, like this amazing fire opal.

Gorgeous, am I right?  On the other hand... this citrine is calling to me too.

I'm obviously like a kid in a candy shop here.  Know where I could really go crazy, though?  With Deborah's beaded pieces.  The woman is running a liquidation sale!  Seriously unreal prices for beautiful handmade jewelry.  Seriously.

Like this necklace in my favorite color, blue, and white.

You're not as much of a fan of blue as I am?  OK, then.  I give you earth tones in agate.

Or for a different look, this pretty pendant necklace.

No?  Then how about my other favorite, this turquoise and howlite necklace?

The shop is just full of wonderful things, and I'll leave you on a colorful note with this all seasons necklace.

Just don't forget to stop by the blog to see what's new... like their two new grandchildren or the craft shows they're headed for!
