instagram favorites

Over the past few weeks I’ve grown to really enjoy Instagram. I found a lot of new interesting people to follow, and a good lot of them post pictures of jewelry making, gemstones and workshops! Here’s a selection of some of my ‘hearted’ images over the past few weeks. If you have the app on your phone and you’d like to follow the owners of these photos, here they are:

@777bryan777 (great photos of gemstones, rough and some cut stones) // @amerrymishap (lifestyle blogger and polymer clay jewelry maker)

@topnotchfaceting (stone cutting process photos = drool) // @lisacongdon (art, painting and dogs)

@jaquelinelitchi // @topnotchfaceting [again, yes] // @cali_d (snow and adventures) // @ronaboat

@michellelattner (ceramic art process photos) // @joyeroamarillo (jeweler and stone cutting student)

@aina_joies (barcelona based jeweler) // @crystalgentilello (rue magazine editor in chief)

Hope you enjoy their photos as much as I do.
