Carmen Trueheart works in metal clay and sterling silver. She uses gemstones, and vintage and lampwork beads. See her jewelry in her Etsy shop. Carmen also loves animals, and donates 20% of all proceeds from her jewelry to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.
Here's a wonderful pendant, and just guess what it's made from. (Hint: not a natural material) Would you believe that's not any type of stone at all, but automotive overspray that's been baked repeatedly (I'm thinking sort of fossilized). It winds up being hard enough to cut and polish like a gemstone. Carmen's setting is just perfect for this piece.
