Buena Vista Jewelry
There is nothing run of the mill about Greg Brummett's hand-crafted jewelry. Each piece is unique and is crafted from the finest quality metals and semi-precious gemstones, that include turquoise, bolder opals, agates, quartz, hematite, onyx, coral, tiger eye, and others. Many stones are cut, shaped and polished by Greg personally. He also creates "steampunk" jewelry which blends Victorian styles with modern science fiction. Think steam engine versus combustion engine when viewing his designs. All pendants are created using the art of wire-wrapping. Wire-wrapping has been around since the time of the Phoenician Empire, about 1000 years B.C. Today, wire wrapping has become popular because of the uniqueness and the individuality of each piece - no two are ever exactly alike!
