Please Welcome Our Newest Member, ZeBunster Designs!

Creating semiprecious stone bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and rings, from apatite to picture jasper to topaz. Specializing in custom designs and repurposing Grandma's treasures into wearable art.

Hobbies have a habit of expanding the boundaries of hobby-dom. They bring joy, peace, a thirst to know more, and a desire to share. For owner and designer Dana Degenhardt, hobbies are the pleasure and passion of creation. | Follow on Instagram |
