Handmade Artist: Rasmussen Gems
Rasmussen Gems also provides services that I do not often find in the handmade community. He can provide jewelry repair services. He is well trained from attending the International Gem Society, Gemological Institute of America, and Penn Foster Career School to learn jewelry design and repair.
Rasmussen Gems also provides gem identification and appraisal services. Gems can be hard to determine - at least for me. Especially the real from the fake or because gems are naturally occurring, the color variants can maybe lead to a different stone in particular. I've run into that a couple of times. I'll think a stone is one gem, but in fact, it's something else.
I've never heard of picture granite. I must live under a rock!

I just love this Faceted Topaz ring. The colors, the feminine qualities.
