Welcome to Sweet Pea Gemstones

Happy SundaSandra Templeton, Jewerly Designery to you! 

I just want to officially introduce myself to you, but first let me tell you I'm so happy your here and you found me.  My name is Sandra Templeton, and can I say how much I love gemstones.  I have always been drawn to them as long as I can remember.  I remember when I was young, my mom went back to school and she took a Geology course and she loved it.  Her and my Dad even took a couple trips out west to Arizona and other regions.  They loved it there.

I remember looking at all the rocks and being mesmerized.  We would also gold pan on the back porch.  It was so much fun. 

I remember when I was 28, I adored a pair of 18K Gold Citrine earrings, but at the time I was working in retail and making minimum wage.  I thought there is no way I could afford them. In a couple months, I went back and bought them because I saved for them.  In today economy they would have costed $750.  Say what?  I know, that's how much I loved them.  You might ask, why would she buy 18K, well I had a skin allergy so I could not wear 10K, 12K or even 14K, my ears would bleed.  That is how much I loved the earrings, and I still own them to this day and wear them often. 

Good gemstone jewelry lasts a lifetime and I can even hand them down to my nieces, they might have to fight over them! 

Over the years, I have had a few businesses, but they were just not my thing.  So I was taking a break (a year or so) and decided that I always wanted to learn how to make jewelry so I decided to take a class on it.  At first, it was really hard, but I fell in love with it, so much that I decided to make a business out of it.  I decided to focus on gemstones since I loved them so much, and they last a lifetime.

My focus is on creating one-of-a-kind pieces and custom designed pieces for my clients. The one-of-a-kind pieces are on the website and custom designed pieces are where I work individually with each client on what they are looking for whether its a graduation piece, birthday present.  It may just be a piece that matches there personality or for a special event.  I will listen to your wants and desires, sketch out a design, and provide an estimate for you.  Feel free to check out my one-of-a-kind pieces on the website and if your interested, fill in the custom design form to get started.
