JIM'S JEWELRY
Studying the book Rock Medicine by Sela Randazzo Jim designs jewelry to appeal to the eye and also support well being. With an emphasis in using “shield stones” in his designs, Jim wants everyone to be aware that rock energy is effective. His jewelry is not intended as a shortcut to Sela’s healing art. Jim’ work is meant to be used with the principles Sela teaches in her book.

Natural fibers are used—sinew, hemp, silk etc. Untreated stones* retain their vibrational frequencies and are preferred for his designs. Generally, metal is not used—gold silver and brass are employed where appropriate. Clasps are simple, usually self “loop and button” style.

Custom orders are encouraged. He designs in his live/work space at Backwater Arts Gallery. The desired length, the right stones for the desired health results and other design elements will be considered to assure the best outcome. Visitors are welcome. Please call for an appointment.

*Untreated stones are natural and have not been dyed, heated, irradiated, bleached, coated, in filled, resin infused or stabilized (partial list.) California law and the Federal Trade Commission requires sellers of gemstones to disclose any treatments.
PLEASE EXPLORE the links. Come back often. I will be adding pages to show my paintings, sculptures Raw-and-Living Food Recipes, Graphic Design and more. I live and work at Backwater Arts, San Jose, California.
