The Gem Diva is creating Treasures For You To Wear

Hello friends!


I am Johnna (also known as The Gem Diva) and I love hoarding sparkly minerals and gemstones. I also love making art with them--the wearable kind that has your friends oohing and ahhing. 

There is just something magical about the feel of wire running between my fingers as I shape it around a gem or mineral. 

And then there is the sense of satisfaction mixed in with giddy happiness as it shines in the sun as I snap pictures. 

         


I sell my wearable treasures online through my website and also make custom orders (you tell me the stone, style, and metal and we go from there).

I also sell my treasures locally here in Baton Rouge at Owen's Deli off of I-10 and am able to keep my prices for the community here under $5 to the neighborhood. 


Where The Money Goes

First I want to explain, in case you didn't know, Patreon is a site where you can subscribe to an artist/creator and support them on a monthly basis for as low as $1 a month (or any amount you choose). 

This is a recurring payment that you can cancel any time. 

A quick breakdown of where my current pledge money is going;

  • Website and Maintenance
  • Investment in Supplies (copper, minerals, etc)
  • Display Items for the deli where some of my jewelry is for sale (packaging, stands, etc)
  • Giveaways (covers shipping to winners and cost of supplies to make the item)

My other major goal is education. I have been wanting to take a course with GIA as a Graduate Gemologist which is available for Distance Education. Meaning I can keep my job and take online classes. 

This is one of the most prestigious credentials in the jewelry industry and I feel it will take my wire wrapping to a whole new level. And it will enable me to work in a field related to something I love: jewelry, gems, and minerals. 




By pledging, you directly support my jewelry, my goals, and my dreams. In fact, you even support other Patreon creators because I also support a few on here--people I know and believe in.

If you've gotten this far, I wish to thank you for your presence here. It means a lot to me--so thank you!

So if you choose this pledge, thank you!
