JEWELRY ART: Stones that are placed in my jewelry and the Valentina designs, I create are the key elements to my success. The beauty of precious stones is secondary to the spiritual meaning and significance to each piece I create. My foundation for jewelry making started with the telephone man who would often give me copper wiring that was flexible enough to mold into various designs. Another element of my creativity was the art of finding interesting stones that I could equate to significant backstories that would match their beauty and colorful brilliance. When I combine my stones with my creative and colorful wires, each creation is it’s own masterpiece and one of a kind.
I have found that the stones that have been the most popular with my customers have varied. However, I find that people often select my pieces based on the looks and beauty, Every piece is uniquely handmade by myself, I enjoy using natural gemstones, some of my most popular requested stones are to name a few: (Agates, Amethyst, Jasper, Obsidian, Turquoise)
