Fossilized Sand Dollars November 11 2013, 0 Comments
I fell in love with fossilized sand dollars when I first discovered them over a decade ago in Mexico. A beautiful Mayan friend collected, carved and polished the little fossils into jewelry quality cabochons. They are around 30 million years old and found in riverbeds near the amber mines in Mexico. These rare and precious stones have been one of my favorites to design with over the years. If you are lucky enough to own one, cherish it, they are hard to find and one of a kind.

Come find Jenstones, right off the beaten path of the Boardwalk Art Show June 11 2013, 0 Comments
People always ask us “Why don’t you do the boardwalk art show?” Honestly, we are not fond of “popping up” that big white tent in the wind, or potential rain. On a whim this year we decided to do two “pop up” trunk shows instead! We will be showing our entire collection this Friday, June 14th at the exquisite jewelry store, Either Ore Jewelers in Strawbridge shopping center. Come join us for stunning new designs, refreshments and in store discounts from 10-5.
The second “pop up” show will be this Sunday, June 16, from 1-5 at the Richard Stravitz Art Gallery. Located on 30th Street and Pacific Ave. in Va. Beach, this show is one block away from Neptune Park and the Boardwalk Art Show. The Stravitz Gallery has an amazing selection of fine jewelry, art, and sculptures. Come enjoy a gallery experience (off the crowded beaten path) and get some new Jenstones Jewelry for the summertime! Thanks!
The Mystery of Mermaids August 13 2012, 0 Comments
Mermaids enchant us and symbolize love, beauty, sensuality, and mystery. These sea goddesses represent wild freedom, rebellious sprits and ferocious independence. Myths depict mermaids with luscious alluring voices; all those in contact with mermaids are subject to their charms.
Mermaids are elusive because they know the hearts of men and are legendary for only appearing to the true of heart. They only appear during magical moments, in the light of moon (which they hold sacred) or durring the hours of dawn or dusk. Mermaids help our hearts and passion overrule the analytical mind so we can find ourselves in a sea of dreams.
Adorn yourself with Jenstones Mermaid rings, pendants and earrings and bring the mystery close to your heart. Coming soon to the online store...
