We are a husband and wife team, Mike and Laurie Chatterton, and personally select the stones and hand cut and polish them ourselves in our Southern California home studio. We named our business Dry Creek because we have a dry creek in the rear of our property. Laurie is a jewelry designer herself (www.lajeannedesign.com), so she knows what designers need in a cabochon. We wanted to make designer cabochons for our jewelry and saw such beauty in the stones we wanted to share these with others.
We have many types of stones to choose from and are always seeking out new and unusual stones, along with the favorites. We get rough stone slabs and Laurie spends considerable time laying out the patterns on the stone that gives the best design. Mike and Laurie both do the grinding and polishing of the cabochons, so either one of us has made the stones that you will receive. This is really a labor of love for us. In this way, it gives a very personal touch to the size and shape of the cab.
We have a large supply uncut material, so we are frequently adding new ones to our inventory. We also have a large inventory of new cabs that still need to be put on this website. Laurie also designs and creates this website, so we are here for you.
Please come back often to see what we've added to our line.
