Meet Your Maker: Mike Veon of Alchemy Earrings

 
[Herkimer diamond pendant]

 Mike Veon has always been fascinated by minerals and gemstones, but has never been a fan of traditional faceted gemstone jewelry.  He was inspired to make his own line out of rough stones and other precious materials and is conscientious enough to make sure each of his pieces are conflict free. The majority of his raw materials is sourced by searching the beaches along the great lakes for found glass and uncovered gemstones.  He cuts, tumbles, polishes and assembles every piece by hand.
