AMAZING!  
Artists with a Special Touch
John Rasmussen 
 
I've had the pleasure to write about John before, and am delighted to do so again.  John has one of the largest shops on Handmade Artists, with nearly 400 items to drool over!  A trained gemologist and retired professor, John's love of natural stones is so evident in every piece he designs and executes.  This is a shop full of BLING!
 
This is the main reason I am just hitting you with pictures.  I'm at a loss to describe John's amazing work and attention to details.  His gorgeous photography does a much better job than I could ever do!

John is a regular visitor to the Thursday evening HAF Chats on the Handmade Artists Forum and often has wonderful advice or counsel to share with the group.  He is also caregiver to his disabled wife, who shares his passion for creating; all of the beaded pieces in his shop are her designs and creations!

You don't need to be rich and famous to own one (or more!) of John's beautiful pieces...  the price range in his shop is $3.75 to $2,500.00!  Whether you're looking for a beaded key chain or a high-end engagement ring, you will find it in this wonderful shop.  You'll easily spend hours drooling over his beautiful jewels, just as I did!
