I wanted to buy a suncatcher for a wedding gift--a small package to unwrap to accompany a check--and ran across Earth's Natural Art & Jewelry at Montgomery County's Green Fest at Brookside Gardens on April 28 and told Jena Basiliko I wanted one in shades of blue. In only two days, she emailed a photo of two suncatchers and told me to choose the one I liked best. I thought they were both great and bought the two. Then I ordered two more suncatchers as gifts for friends, and Jena made them quickly and emailed photos. I loved them, and she had four suncatchers in the mail to me, complete with good quality boxes and a business card to go with each gift. Jena's website is overflowing with photos of a huge variety of beautiful products.
I purchased a shell flower at a craft fair I went to in Decemer. I liked it so much that I just bought another one to give to a friend. They are both very well-made, beautiful and unique. I can’t wait for the next craft show Jena participates in to see what else she had made. I am so glad I have found an artist that creates such lovely art from items found at the beach.
I'm amazed at the quality of the labradorite on my beautiful necklace, oops, I mean my daughter's beautiful necklace. And the wire work shows off the stone and has it's own beautiful design. The shell wall piece makes me smile when I see it. The earrings are perfect gifts, one of a kind. Thanks!

I met Jena at a Festival in Maryland during a trip with my husband. It was raining extremely hard and vendors started packing up and heading home. I walked by Jena's tent, she stepped outside of her tent and said, "Hi, come on in! I'm soooo glad she did! I am an avid lover of natural gemstone jewelry. I showed her pics of what I like and she pulled a few pieces for me. I purchased two wire-wrapped gemstone necklaces; she customized and resized the length of the chain to my liking... well, to my loving! I've received tons of comments on my new pieces;
and shared screenshots of her business cards with total strangers in North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. She's so sweet and personable. I probably asked her about 50 questions; she answered each with a detailed explanation while smiling. I'm so glad I decided to ignore the rain and visit the vendor tents. THANKS, JENA!! I've bookmarked this website, as I will be using it often - to place orders. I'm currently waiting for her to finish a few new pieces so I can place another order!
Not only did Jena measure my neck for a perfect custom job, but she let me try on so many different pendents before I found mine. I am a Pirate magician and needed a cool necklace to go with my outfit. Jena had the most awesome selection. I settled on a black polished stoned set in a beautiful silver overlay. With the custom necklace length, it looks perfect. Thanks Jena
Jena was beyond helpful and sweet after a pendant I purchased from her at a craft fair was lost in the mail on the way to my mom - when I contacted her asking if she had anything similar, she even showed me stones she had yet to work on and helped me decide on a new one for my mom! Her work is classic and beautiful, and her customer service just goes above and beyond. Thank you Jena!!
I received my Patuxent River Stone today....on time and as promised. I
am sending the official rocks, gemstones and/ or minerals of each of the
50 states to my 10 year old granddaughter. I thought I was stumped when
I came to the state of Maryland until I found your store. I am very
pleased with the design, size, and beauty of the stone. My granddaughter
has already received more than half of the official stones of the
states.(I'm sending them in alphabetical order). I bet the Patuxent
River stone will be her favorite. Thanks for your great customer
service. Best Wishes...Jim
The cross is really pretty. It’s a little smaller than I had in mind but the size was stated. It still worked and looks great on the walk of my guest room. I saved the crafters card. Will probably buy some more.
This is a wonderful seller and artist. I was also asking for a different picture that I had in mind and the seller made it without any obligations. The picture also came faster than originally promised. I highly recommend Jena
Item was exactly as described and shipped quicker than I had hoped and
also with great care. It arrived completely in tact and ready to
showcase in my home. Guests immediately notice the artwork and comment
on its originality and unique design. Highly recommend seller.
