I opened "Crystal Gem Shop" on Etsy in November 2015 during my final semester at Florida Atlantic University. One day, I'd become curious about jewelry-making and went to the craft store to buy wire. I came home, read my first tutorial about wire wrapping, and the first thing I wrapped was a genuine rose quartz crystal that I owned. I've always been interested in the metaphysical associations of crystals and I enjoy having them in my space. From that point on it was constant practice, and coming up with designs and techniques in the process.
Now, "Crystal Gem Shop" is a subsidiary company of "Morgan Cerese Art" and has been integrated on this standalone website. The original Etsy store still exists but it was time for my crystal jewelry and my artwork to be available on the same website.
