class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> I am so happy to introduce Lori Coats who is one of the people I have met through my crafting and who is very talented!
She designs some incredible jewelry with incredible gemstones and beautiful metal work.
From Lori herself:
I am originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I have been a rock hound since childhood, and have always been fascinated by Mother Natures little gifts. I moved south as a young adult, and have been living in Central Florida for over 30 years.
I began making my own jewelry due to my love of gemstones, my inability to wear base metals, and in large part due to my shallow pockets. It occurred to me that I could make good quality jewelry on a budget. Many friends and family suggested I sell my creations but with holding down a full time job it wasn't high on my priority list. So I began to planning this little endeavor for a retirement activity.
I became unemployed after more than 26 years with the same company early 2012, and found myself forced into life changes I wasn't prepared to make. So, Pretty Rock Shop was born!
I wish to share my love of beautiful gemstones at affordable prices.
