SARU (monkey in Japanese) + STAR (my grandma Stella)= SARUSTAR, a personal amalgamation of what my business/ life/ the act of making things is to me. It is the playful and sometimes haphazard way things come together to make life beautiful.
Handmade jewelry showcasing the unsung gems of the world.
I have quite a collection of reject jewelry that I've set aside over the years to deal with later. (Settings gone wrong, cracked stones, etc.) Today, I pulled out an old pyrite ring to turn into a pendant.
I have a few more rings like this now sitting on my bench. It's a really nice feeling to move things from the "in-progress" pile to the "finished" pile, so I think it's safe to expect some similar pendants in the days to come.
