Introducing our stunning new selection of Zebra Jasper, Sugilite, Sonora Dendritic Jasper, and Petrified Wood featuring all new colors, patterns, shapes and cuts!
Sugilite is a rare stone only found in Japan and South Africa. Sugilite is considered one of the most important love stones. Many believe that Sugilite represents spiritual love and wisdom, opening and aligning all the chakras to love with its beautiful purple rays. Petrified Wood was once an ancient, living, breathing tree. It was buried and fossilized, over a long period of time, and the organic parts of its structure were replaced by minerals. The markings and patterns on the stone are the original tree’s growth rings and knots. Sonoran Dendritic Rhyolite Jasper comes from Mexico and is a relatively new stone that is mainly composed of feldspar, mica and quartz that was created by lava flowing over rock. Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite Jasper is often connected to change, progress and creativity. Zebra Jasper is a variety of Jasper in the quartz family (chalcedony) identifiable by its zebra-like stripes. Metaphysically, Zebra Jasper is used for those needing to escape the perils of over-thinking and promotes the enjoyment of experiencing life as it comes. It also helps to stimulate the transition from the material plane to the astral plane during meditation and assists in centering of the soul. On the physically plane, Zebra Jasper is said to be helpful with stamina, endurance, bone disorders, osteoporosis, teeth, gums, muscle spasms, and heart palpitations.

BRONZclay, COPPRclay, and FASTfire BRONZclay are so affordable, they can be used to for any small project or even to sculpt large and intricate pieces. These clays can even be thrown on a potter’s wheel to shape bronze and copper hollowware. Base metal clay allows the artist to experiment with how far (and big!) designs can go. These bronze and copper clays can be pinched, rolled, sculpted and manipulated. In its dried state, it’s still highly flexible and easy to carve—an ideal canvas for applying details and finishing touches prior to firing.

The Cool Tools Clay Hydrator is a clay storage container specifically designed for adding moisture back into your clay. The innovative design allows metal clay to absorb the proper amount of moisture so clay remains hydrated and workable long after you have opened the package. Every metal clay artist has gone back into an old opened package and found their leftover clay too dry to work with. The Cool Tools Clay Hydrator eliminates this issue and can save you hundreds of dollars in lost clay.
The Cool Tools Clay Hydrator allows you to keep metal clay moist and workable for months-on-end. Keep your clay in a Cool Tools Clay Hydrator during the design process to make sure it doesn’t dry out. This can save you hundreds of dollars, and help make sure you never lose clay to dryness again. If you’ve been working with some clay and your hands have dried it out, place it in the hydrator, and in less than 30 minutes, you will begin to notice a difference in the workability. Never be limited again by dried out clay.
Only use distilled water in the Clay Hydrator because it does not have impurities, which prevents molding. When adding clay to the Hydrator, loosely wrap it in a small piece of plastic wrap. Do not wrap it too tightly, because this allows the moisture in the air to get into the clay. Never place clay directly on the sponge, or the water and the clay will make a mess and form slip.
Each sponge is sized perfectly for the Clay Hydrator, so everything fits together nicely. This bottom sponge should be soaked a little more thoroughly, allowing a small amount of water to rest in the bottom of the base. This water is slowly absorbed through the bottom sponge, and continuously pulled up into the air by the top sponge. During this process, your clay absorbs this much needed moisture and re-hydrates any metal clay. This innovative design creates the perfect environment to keep metal clay hydrated for several months.
Introducing our stunning new selection of Bamboo Agate, Chrysocolla, Crazy Horse Jasper, Natural Druzy, and Kyanite featuring all new colors, patterns, shapes and cuts!
Bamboo Agate features brilliantly banded patterns of white, clear, black, greyand orange. Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate, often forming with copper salts, iron and manganese oxides. Chrysocolla is known to form in oxidation zones of copper ore bodies and is actually considered a minor ore for the mineral copper. Although Chrysocolla may be a ‘lesser known’ gemstone, it is still a very fascinating stone that is highly sought-after by many avid gem and mineral enthusiasts. Chrysocolla belongs to a very small group of copper-bearing gems which gives it the green coloring and patterns. This Chrysocolla comes from Arizona, a well know copper mining area. Crazy Horse Jaspers add a bit of whimsy and wonder to the mix, encouraging us to enjoy life, to seek beauty and humor, and to not take ourselves too seriously. Druzy, also often spelled drusy, druse or drusies, refers to tiny quartz crystals that form within or on the surface of other stones. A Druzy stone features this unique crystal-like finish that has the look and feel like no other stone. It occurs within geodes, which are hollow, spherical rocks, and lines the interior walls and cavities that occur. This dense form of quartz called chalcedony forms the exterior rind, and what is left is a beautiful druzy finish. Our Druzy gemstones range from bright white and pinks to brilliant reds, browns and greys.
