Meet jeweler Nick Pietsch

 

Minerals drive the passions behind Nick Pietschs’ (NpDesigns) jewelry and mineral sculptures.  He has been collecting quartz crystals in the Cascade mountains for over 30 years and has been in Index since 2010.  His family loves to play in the Skykomish River, hike around the wonderful area forest trails, and ski in the winter.

Nick’s favorite materials are sterling silver, 18k gold, elevator bolts, tourmaline, turquoise, mawsitsit, sugulite, chrysoprase, ruby, lapis, star sapphire and hematite.

Besides Ellie & Clarence, you can find Nick’s work on Facebook , Etsy and Instagram!
