Megan Austin is from Canton, GA, and says, "I love symbolism and try to create pieces that possess meaning and that will have significance and meaning to their owners. Hopefully the jewelry you purchase will be a piece that you cherish for years to come. I am known in the jewelry world for my expertise in polishing Opal, Ammolite, Larimar, and Turquoise. I typically get orders from other retail jewelers for these stones and I am one of roughly 10 polishers in the USA that possesses the skill to polish Ammolite. I get all of my stones in the rough direct from the mine. When setting my stones, I try and pull the design in the silver from the stone which makes the piece stronger visually as a whole. I have entered my jewelry in many exhibits and I now go to Arts and Craft shows all around the US to sell my pieces. My mission is to provide the highest quality items for the best price possible. I believe that everyone deserves to own something beautiful and meaningful."
