Wikipedia definition (bear with me non-jeweler artisans, this was the best description of us as artisans I could find. For non-artisans, this artistic bent to our craft applies to us as a group):
An artisan, also called a craftsman, is a skilled manual worker who uses tools and machinery in a particular craft. In Europe during the Middle Ages artisans usually organized into guilds. Guilds were associations of master artisans that were granted charters by the local sovereign authority. To become an artisan in the guilds, a person worked under a master artisan as an unpaid apprentice at a young age. If the apprentice completed the training, the apprentice became a paid journeyman. For a journeyman to become a master artisan, he would have to produce a masterpiece that met the standards of the guild. Artisan jewelry dates back as far as 7000 BC when gold and copper began to be sculpted to adorn the human form and the practice continues today. Although ra

Hi guys,

First of all, super-belated thanks for the DD! It tells you how little we've been around that we didn't know until over a month later! Our website www.soulstonedesigns.com is currently defunct because we just don't have time to maintain it. I also haven't checked our gmail account in many moons - sorry if anyone tried to contact us and we didn't respond! Disappearing wasn't intentional - we've both just thrown ourselves into our jobs in the jewelry industry with little time left over for creative endeavors. We can't take commissions right now because we don't have any workspace, but if you want to inquire about purchasing something already pictured here (so long as the description doesn't say "sold") just drop me a line. It's probably better to contact us at c.l.armstrong@gmail.com rather than the accounts I continually forget to check. :/ I've only made one piece other than the ring Henry designed for me since Feb. '08. Eventually we want to buy a place out here with workspace and get back to making things, but it's going to be awhile. I'm still amazed at the outpouring of kind words and support for our work. We miss you!

Hi Cynthia

I love your jewelery designs! Wonderful work, particularly the opal side of things. -I mine black opal here in Lightning Ridge, N.S.W. Australia.

Keep up the great work!
Take care :wave:

I goofed! I accidentally deleted my main account (UniquelyYours) while trying to delete Aartsee1. Now, I am starting all over again... brand new account. Very sad, but I'm glad to be finding my old friends.
