“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."

Poor - not as shown, disappointing

By 

from Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Comments about UncommonGoods Raw Gemstone Necklace:

The product looked attractive on the website. In reality it was poor, very little opal showing and looked like it had had little attention to the end result in it's creation. Unlike the picture shown it was not at all apparent it was a raw opal and the bulk of it had the appearance of a piece of concrete! Especially upsetting for something shipped to England.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Raw Gemstone Necklace:

      I gave this as a gift to someone and sent it to them directly. The ruby pictured has nice color and glow. The necklace that was received was terrible. It looked like a rough little rock. The person who received it was honest enough to tell me it was unattractive and she had compared it to the picture online. I was embarrassed to have chosen it. I order from you all of the time and have never been disappointed.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Raw Gemstone Necklace:

          I love this pendant. I chose the citrine because I thought it would look the best of the three choices but also because by coincidence it's my husband's birthstone (and I still like him, etc.). I changed the chain to something a little sturdier to match the stone. Now, it's just right. I was concerned upon making the purchase especially because of the uncut, unpolished nature of the stone and the fact that I wouldn't be able to return it if I didn't like it after all. That was a little risky. I'm glad I took the risk because what I have now is even better than I imagined. There are many ways it could have sucked, and none of them manifested. If you are wondering whether this pendant is worth the risk, at least now you have my case to take into consideration.
