Featured Artist: A Pretty Rock
"Oh Shiny!" should definitely be Yazmin Wickham's mantra and says a lot about her.
Yazmin of A Pretty Rock creates one of a kind or limited edition pieces of jewelry. Brought to life with carefully selected gemstones, mineral stones and freshwater pearls, the collection is meant to lend affordable, quality elegance to all.
Yazmin, a jewelry designer, has always been an artsy-crafty person, but it seems like she just moved into jewelry unintentionally. In 2004, she went to the Yellow Daisy Festival for the umpteenth time and found a pair of beautiful hair chopsticks with beaded ends. She wore them for about a month straight! They were a true obsession.
She spent a lot of time thinking about the chopsticks and how to make her own. This led her to local stores like Michael's and Joann's, but it also led her to several boutique bead shops... Many gemstones and wire later and here she is!
There is no reason why every woman shouldn't have A Pretty Rock in their life!
