Jessica Kramer

Jessica Kramer of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, enhances the beauty of natural gemstones in a rock-solid collection of raw mineral jewelry. Kramer relies on the electroforming process in which the stone, covered in a conducive paint, is immersed in a copper-rich electrochemical solution. Copper molecules are drawn to the paint, growing a copper bezel around each stone for a unique look.

"Raw minerals are really difficult to set with traditional jewelry techniques, making it expensive and uncommon," Kramer explained. "I'm so excited to have carved a niche of accessible jewelry that embraces the incredibleness of our natural world."
