Helen Hilton Gemcraft
About HelenWelcome to my page. This is where I get to showcase my passion for shaping stone and moving metal.
Here at Manchester Minerals I get to handle the most beautiful gemstones and rough rock every day. I get a huge amount of satisfaction from receiving orders and selecting products that I know will be treasured and transformed by our many talented customers.
My absolute pleasure though, is to head off into my own workshop with an idea or a dream and a pile of pretty pebbles. I cut and polish all my own cabochons, although, sometimes I embellish pieces with diamond or other faceted precious gems that I don't have time to cut myself.
If you would like to know more about my Jewellery and how it's made, please visit me on my facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you.
All of the cabochon gemstones in Helens collection (scroll down this page) have been sawn, ground and polished by her on small lapidary machines such as the American manufactured 'Ameritool Universal' machine shown in this image. Click here for more information. These machines are available for sale through this site and anyone wishing to try their hand at lapidary is invited to attend the low cost beginners courses run by Howard Johnson in Stockport, Cheshire (Phone for details).
