Clidastes Stones, based in Loveland, Ohio, produces hand made stone craft jewelry and home decor. I also sell minerals and stones for display and for jewelry making (raw material, tumbled and slabs)
- I recently bought equipment to make cabs. I will start offering cabs of a variety of material soon. If you are looking for something in particular, please contact me. I have a large inventory of raw stone that I can use to make cabs.
- I recently purchased the remains of an old rock shop. This includes several pieces of equipment as well as a lot of rocks. I will be sorting and posting specimens as quickly as I can.
Please note: This page is not set up for e-commerce right now. You may email me at email@example.com to place orders (paypal invoices). New material is being added all the time.
As a geologist, I of course love stones. I often look for stones with unique shape to them and have long wondered what to do with them. A few months ago I (re)discovered suiseki and started making some for family gifts. Then, I just kept making them. I was also given a gift of a wire wrapped stone from one of our field trips by one of my students. At Christmas, we were trying to find gifts for people we didn't know very well and I realized - wire wrapped pendants are a lovely gift. I made the ones for the gifts, and then became obsessed with those as well. I love the opportunity to make and share my stones with others.
I like to include a descriptions of the stones used and the significance of the item being purchased. But, I thought it would be nice if people could see this information prior to making the purchase. So, I have started a blog at clidastesstones.com. I will periodically be posting information about the stones and items in my shop.
My shop is run through Etsy. This page will provide information about my work, updates on my products, and links to my products on Etsy at www.etsy.com/ClidastesStones. Follow me on instagram at www.instagram.com/clidastes_stones and Facebook at www.facebook.com/ClidastesStones
