New Ethiopian Opal Rings by Nancy Trosky

New Ethiopian Opal Rings by Nancy Trosky

I love Nancy's new Ethiopian Opal Rings! http://bit.ly/2jejVZJ

Just recently a new discovery of gem crystal and hydrophane Opal was discovered in Ethiopia. Ethiopian Opal was found in Gondar which was at first called desert Opal but it is from a plateau in the highlands. The main field which is creating a lot of excitement now is from a field called Welo. This is found in a plateau 2500 to 3299 meters. Only the locals are allowed to mine this field and the government has even supplied basic tools. This field produces a variety of crystals, brown base and even black material. Opals from this field are known as Ethiopian Opal from Welo.

New Pod Bangles from Shana Kroiz

New Pod Bangles from Shana Kroiz

The stacked bangle has been a fashion statement since ancient times.  Shana Kroiz does a new twist on an old favorite giving the bangle a curvilinear design.  She also introduces the ancient art of keum-bo into her work.  Keum-bo is an ancient Korean jewelry-making technique where 24K gold is heat-fused to silver. Also spelled keum-boo.

Imitation Is Not Flattery But Theft!

In the art jewelry business we work hard to design work that is a reflection of ourselves and when seen can be easily identified as our work.  I was watching Criminal Minds on Netflix when I noticed the character Garcia was wearing a bracelet and pendant that looked exactly like my work. Unfortunately she did not buy it from me. If you have Netflix it's season 11 episode 19 Tribute 37:48 minute marker. The episode came out in 2015 and I have been making this piece for over 10 years. Then last week I found an article I published in Art Jewelry Magazine show up in the magazine FACET. Can somebody tell me how this stuff happens and how do I get paid? (rhetorical but please feel free to vent your anger along with me.)

Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those who we cannot resemble. Samuel Johnson
