lapidary






When I discovered Gary Wilson's work a few years ago I was in love. I immediately began to hoard his work and only recently begun in earnest to incorporate it into my jewelry pieces. His work is very sensuous, tactile and just outrageously gorgeous to look at. The man is a genius. If you find yourself mysteriously in front of his booth at a gem show with your mouth agape with a little bit of drool, you know you have arrived.

I have never found any other lapidary's work that compares to his, I love his rocks.

What a beautiful piece of art...it's more than jewelry, it truly is art.

I totally agree with you! I met Gary Wilson in a Miami Bead Expo about 5 years ago and fell in love with his work! Having seen some of it earlier in Virgo Moon's designs, it was a thrill to be able to purchase his work. I have tried to design with his lovely carvings as centerpieces but have not been able to allow them to be sold, I don't want to part with them! Your designs are beautiful, they do him justice!
