I grew up in the Southwestern part of the United States. At an early age I fell in love with the great outdoors and all it had to offer. I became fascinated with rocks and minerals. This probably comes in part from my mother’s side of the family. Who were all hard rock gold and silver miners. I started collecting specimens at an early age and am still adding to my collection to this day.
In the early seventies I started making and selling jewelry as a way of paying my way thru school. My part time job soon turned into a fulltime passion and career. So much for school; that was over thirty years ago, and I’ve never looked back. I feel like I’ve gotten a vast education over the years, but in a different field than I originally started out in.
I’ve been fortunate in the fact that everything I really love to do has come together to form what it is that I do. I love to travel and see different cultures, and make new friends. I love to fly and anything that goes up in the air. I became a private pilot at a very early age and it has allowed me to pilot small aircraft in many locations all over the world. This has allowed me to seek out and explore many remote areas that otherwise might take a very long time to get to, in a shorter amount of time. I’ve landed in a lot of places that know one to my knowledge had ever been before. I love rocks and minerals and all the things Mother Nature has provided us with. I truly enjoy creating pieces of wearable art from the different materials I find.
What sets us apart from most of the people I know in my industry is we do it all. We go directly to the mines, or deal directly with an agent for the miners. There are as few middle men in the process as possible. This allows us to control the quality of our rough materials and obtain the absolute best price. We design all of our jewelry in-house. Everything is manufactured by us all by hand. Everything for the most part is done from scratch. We use only the finest of raw materials and sheet silver. This is almost a lost art today but over the years we’ve stayed true to our course and make the majority of our designs using only simple hand tools and lapidary equipment. This allows us to provide an extremely high quality product and keep our prices reasonable. We don’t mass produce anything but focus more on quality and design. This allows us to provide things that can’t be found anywhere else.
I still work in many of the better known gemstones like opal, turquoise, lapis, amber, and coral. What we are known for is also brining materials to the market that have never been seen in jewelry designs or in most cases been seen at all. I love to share the stories of the how we found them and the route they had to travel to end up as a finished product.

I was really looking forward to receiving this necklace. I love the look and feel of natural stones, but I don't know if it was just the particular necklace that I was sent, but there was no colour. Most of the stones were black and/or dark. It was very boring. Unfortunately, I returned it the day after receiving it. I was expecting more colour.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Beautiful Necklace/Great Value
This is my first purchase from Jay King and Iam very impressed with it. I love looking at thedifferent colours and patterns on the stones. This necklace will go with anything. I also enjoy the smoothness and shapes of the various stones. I wear it as a single strand or double it up. At this price the value can't be beat.
The nicest necklace on the TSC
This is the nicest necklace on the TSC and it gives you a lot of pleasure to look at and also to wear it.I agree with all the comments so far, this necklace is amazing, the colours, the shapes of the stones, you just can't NOT wear it!I orderd the second one because I know that it is a perfect gift and anyome will be as pleased as I am.It is specatcular!
WOW.Great Necklace & Great Price.
I have looked at this necklace many times & missed it when it was a Showstopper. I too was lucky enough to get the great sale price as well as the extra 20% discount on Easter Weekend. This is a fabulous piece. It truly exceeded my wildest expectations. I've only wore it once as I just received it, but, compliments abounded. Too bad I couldn't get a matching bracelet or earrings, but, I'm not complaining.
This necklace is truly beautiful. I've received many compliments on it. A word of caution that it can be a bit heavy to wear but I still love it. I was so lucky to get it on sale and take an extra advantage of the 20% discount offered by the Shopping Channel during the Easter Weekend.

I loved this so much, when it went on sale, I bought one for my Mother's birthday! Very beautiful necklace!
This necklace is stunning. It is full of colour and interesting to look at because of the different shapes of the stones.
I just love this necklace
I missed out when this was a showstopper and I kept checking back. I am so glad the price did drop. This necklace is just jaw dropping beautiful. Especially for me who just loves and collects all rocks. These rocks are just so lovely. Reminds me of the beach all day. My only concern is the stones are not knotted in between but time will tell if it will break or not.
