Jewels - unset

The following jewels are ready to be set into any type of piece; use like any stone cabochon. If you don't see one in the colors or theme you want, just email me to discuss a custom piece. Most of these jewels are enameled, but some are various types of metal work; a variety of enameling techniques are employed.

I also have Doll Faces for use by any doll maker.

I'm happy to sell to other artists to use in their own work. This is like buying a cabochon or glass jewel from another artist. Custom work accepted.
