Alan also does just the silversmith work as well, no stone and it is pretty awesome.
We still have this, our "triple" petrified wood pendant
This was a full slice of Oregon Carnelian that Alan made into a pendant in
LOVE the color of this Carnelian Agate!
This was a banded agate that Alan put some "art" into.
This was a custom request from New York - it is a Smokey Agate from Oregon
A petrified wood that Alan made a custom silver band on. Amazing!
I know, I know....one of my favorites. There are just so many special stones!
One of my very favorites
My favorite Moroccan Agate stone
Carnelian agate ring for a friend in Arkansas
This was a special request ring - a gal wanted us to make an "Alice Cullen" ring from Twilight. It was for her sister for a surprise - It was hard but we did it!
A Labradorite ring and matching pendant
A beautiful Brecciated Jasper, love this stone
We had a special request for this piece and the person had amazing sketches she sent to us. It turned out perfect.
This was a stone that was sent to us from Texas and we turned it into this great ring.
This custom order was a petrified wood that they mailed us the stone, and we worked it into this trio of amazing pieces.
Custom order - this was a stone someone had found at the Oregon Coast and hung onto it for years. She brought it to one of our farmers markets and we made it into a ring for her.

This is the rock bench. As you can see it is quite sturdy!
More stone slices
Another view of the trimsaw
Once that stone is trimmed down, then next is onto a dop stick and to the cab machine
The trim saw is the very messy part....oil that keeps the blade cool goes everywhere including
The rock that we have taken slices off of then heads to the "Butt box" to be used again late
We end up with a slice of stone that we will take to the trim saw
The raw stone then goes into the rock saw
A few of the buckets of rocks
