500 Gemstone Jewels

September 8, 2010

500 Gemstone Jewels is an international book published by “Lark Books” and available at Barnes and Noble worldwide. As the title implies, this publication features 500 works of the top jewelry designers in the world. Our Art Professors from the University of Wisconsin Stout, encouraged us to submit examples of our custom jewelry designs for publication. Each artist can submit up to three designs to be juried.

Sam and Greg selected six of their newest designs of which three pieces were published.

“We are very proud to be a part of this exclusive book and to be included with such other fine and talented designers. This is one of the biggest accomplishments and highlights of our career.” - Greg Christian
