After receiving his education in Geology at Renesselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY John taught geology for about 10 years. At that time he decided to move into a different direction in his life as we all do from time to time. John decided to work in medicine and retired from emergency services and returned to his first love, ROCKS! He has also studied at the International Gem Society as well as Gemological Institute of America.
John and his wife Debra make amazing jewelry. John is the lapidary and jewelry for his shop and his wife Debra who is a designer by trade having a career in designing decorative swags and more for home decor, now spends her time designing all the beaded jewelry for the shop.
Here are a few of my very favorite pieces. Do make sure that you stop by Rasmussen Gems & Jewelry, LLC and have a look for yourself at all the beautiful work of these amazing artists.
