MetalsmithedByOlga - Handmade Artisan Gemstone Jewelry

Olga Sitnik is hand-making jewelry in Los Olivos, California.  It was hard to decide whether to add her shop to the Metal page or the Stone page, but since it is hard to find artists for the Stone page, that is where you will be able to find her shop here on the blog.  I love the incredible variety of colors and patterns that natural stone show us when they are cut and polished.  And Olga brings out their beauty when she then incorporates them into her designs.
I hope you use this link to her Etsy shop to see more:  MetalsmithedByOlga
