Happy Anniversary

I cannot believe I have been bringing you “Mine Finds” on HSN for 14 years!  I have to thank each and every one of you for making my job so much fun!
This month is extra special for lots and lots of reason.  We will be presenting the infamous Jay King Sculptured Bowl this month.  I am so excited for you to receive your bowl.  Please make sure to tune in and watch the show, so that you can see the footage of the artisans making the bowls – these are a “true” labor of love.
We have several new “Mine Finds” that we are presenting in our October Show.  I have had a lot of requests for extra information on where the stones come from and I am going to share that information with you here – so you will have it for your reference.
Mined in the USA:

    Idaho Marble – This material is Black and white marble, which is a high quality dense form of limestone.  Limestone under extreme pressure and metamorphic changes creates marble.  This material comes from a location above the Salmon River in Idaho.

    Strawberry Onyx
    – This was brought to us from one of our favorite “rock hounds” who searches the southwest for unique and different minerals.  He has been trekking for over 40 years and knew that he had found something special – when he stumbled upon this onyx.  This stone is from one large boulder weighing over 500 pounds.

    One of our favorite Rock Hounds

    Gecko– This material was found in the area of Lake Havasu, Arizona – the miner pulled over on the side of the road for a quick “pit stop” and discovered the stone sticking up out of the ground.  He quickly ran back to his truck for a shovel and a pick and the rest is history.

    White Snake Skin Jasper
    – This stone was discovered in an area in North Western Arizona that is known for its wild burro’s. The burro’s where very curious and helpful when the miner was mining this material.  This material is named for its beautiful white and tan appearance.

Mined in South Africa:

    Saturn – is mined in the Southern tip of Africa.  South Africa is rich in mineral resources.  Saturn is a kind of natural jasper.  Jasper is opaque, fine grained or dense variety of silica mineral chert.  It has a dull luster, but takes a fine polish.  I have always felt like jaspers are “mother nature’s” paint brush, because we get so many color and pattern variations.  Jasper is a wonderful stone to work with and I always welcome a new color palette or pattern when a miner brings it to us to design with.

Mined in Brazil:

    Blooming Agate: This material is mined in the east and south western part of Brazil in the state of Minas Gerais.  Miners discovered the Blooming Agate when they are mining iron ore.

Mined in China:

    Rainbow Stone: This material is mined in Liaoning which is located in North Eastern China.  Liaoning is known for its many fossils. Rainbow was found when explorers where looking for fossils.  There is no large scale mining of this material – only 3-5 people at a time mine this material and they carry out by hand what they mine daily.Mongolian Copper Mountain:  This material is mined in Inner Mongolia.  This mine is located near a copper mine in a mountainous region, thereby giving this stone its name.

I have just returned from what is becoming an annual trip to Europe.  I will share many new design inspirations I had while on my trip over the upcoming months.  One of my favorite things about visiting Europe is the amount of history – I can never get enough of it.
As you can tell we have pulled out all of the stops for our 14th anniversary show.  You will not even believe the Today’s Special we have planned for you!  Please tune on October 3rd, 4th and 5th.  Take care and safe travels.  J

Thanks for your comments.  First of all I would love to do clip-ons.  Problem is the findings.  I’ve done them in the past, and had lots of problems with them falling off over time.  I’m working on it.  We’re working on a web-site for stones.  More bowls will be coming.  J
Carol, FL

Suzi, TX
We are now making stand alone enhancers.  Please keep watching.  J
Alunite question
You’re correct on Alunite.  We do enhance the color in this case.  I’ve seen it in purple once before though.  I buy carnelian all the time.  When I can get the natural color I want then I get it.  Unfortunately this is not always the case.  So you just have to watch.  Thanks for your support.  J
June, PA
Thanks for your support.  I hope you know our viewers are the most important thing to us.  We will always do our best to make you happy, and keep you shopping with us.  I’ll tell Debra your comment.  J

Margeret,OR We have several new designs in progress that are longer. Be sure and check out my TS for October. J
Vicki, NY I have only done bloodstone one time in the past that I can recall. I’ll look for some rough. J
Carol, IL All I can say is don’t miss my October TS. J
Nancy, TX I am sorry you missed out on your size. This is one reason I don’t do a lot of rings. We are getting a lot of requests for more rings so you will be seeing more in the future. J
Melissa, LA I think you are referring to Rainbow Cal-Silica. Check HSN.com if not I have more styles coming. J
Iraida, MD I try and read and answer everyone. This is new  to me so it takes sitting down and doing it. I do listen and I think your going to love what’s coming up. J
Pat, CA I have worked in gold in the past, but I really can’t with HSN. Probably the only way to do this is find the stone and have it custom made. I would cut you a stone but don’t have any rough at this point in time. J
Marilyn, WI Thank you and great idea. We have been working on stone descriptions for the web-site. It just takes time. J
Doris, LA We will have number 8 in future designs. It is very rare and has a particular look. Keep watching please. I know we are processing our remaining stock. J
Carol, CA Thanks, this was an experiment. Some viewers are requesting  higher end designs that are handcrafted in the USA. We are limited on what we can do, but as always working on it. I will work in the Russian material again. I do have rough. J
Lea, TX The material I think your talking about came from Turkey. I’m looking for more rough now. We have lapis coming. J
Kathi, AZ Yes we have run several designs in #8. The mine has been closed since the 70’s so it is hard to get. J
Love, TX As always I hear you. Finding a quality clip-on finding is the issue. We have been working on it. I have done clips in the past, but after wearing them for a while they tend to get loose and fall off, creating lots of problems. J
AZ We have 100 done in our warehouse, that took us 6 months. October show is suppose to be the release. J
Joanne, CA Thank you so much. J
TRUNK SHOW
Donna, IL You will see longer lengths in the October show. J
Lois, IL Lois thanks for just watching us. I will try to keep things as affordable as possible, without sacrificing quality. The trunk show was made by local artists of the finest material. Thanks for your support. J
Karen, MI Thanks for watching. I appreciate you like what I do. J
Patti, MI Thanks, we don’t have any pink opal rough now. As always I’m on the lookout for it. The trunk show is a test. This is all high end made by local artists. J
Teresa, FL I have in the past been asked to do this. The problem is getting sheet in the different gauges we work in. Also sterling is much softer and you can work it. Steel by nature is much harder, so it requires special tools, thanks. J
Jane, IL Thanks for the suggestion. Lots of people are requesting watches. I have done them for HSN in the past. We will keep it in mind. J
Rose, CA I am always on the lookout for the rough. Thought I found some in Tucson earlier this year. So far we haven’t been able to get a good polish on it. J
Gracie, FL I used to make a critter line. I think we called it cave crawlers. I have been thinking of doing more designs using this theme, thanks for the idea. J
Pam, VA Thanks we try our best. If it wasn’t for folks like you, we couldn’t do what we love. J
Margie, PA HSN.com Jay King High End Gallery designs.
IL Yes I have, great look, but we haven’t found any quantity yet. J
Judith in FL This is why I have my blog. I’m so sorry this happened to you. The same thing happened to me. A friend sent it to me before I knew it was up. This is something brand new HSN is offering. It was a test. I’ll make sure your input is heard. J
Lola, LA I don’t have any salmon coral coming up. I’m at all times looking  for new coral to work with. J
Carol, CA This was a test I’m glad you got it. I hope we will refine this in the future. J
Elizabeth, WY Thanks for your input. J
Tracey, NY Thanks we try to offer sets when possible. Some materials it just doesn’t work. J
Diane, VA Thanks, hopefully I’ll get home for the Balloon Festival this year also. J
Libby, RI We have a 100 of them made all ready to go. The launch was supposed to be the October show. J
Sylvia, FL I am not sure about this one. J

Turquoise Bowls
We want to thank all of you for tuning in and watching our 14th anniversary show.  This was our first release of a new line of decorative designs in stone.  We are working on many new and unique designs at this time and you will see them in the future.  I want to assure all of you that we will have the first Jay King Sculptured bowl available again on HSN.  I want to stress to everyone that this was our first attempt at a decorative item and when we started working on the original release we did not realize what the response would be.  I want to assure you that this bowl will be made available in the future – but at this time the Artists are busy working on the order for the November release.  We have increased the order, so that there will be plenty of bowls to go around.  I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that these are handcrafted one at a time in the USA and each bowl takes 1 – 2 days to make.  I want to wish a sincere apology to each of you that missed out on the first release, but again rest assured that the bowls will be made available again just as soon as we can get them.  Safe Travels, Jay

Beth, VA Thanks, I was not aware that could happen either. The enhancer was so popular and so many missed out. I’ll talk to the buyer about it. J
Bernadette, FL I would have to look at what you have. If it’s real old then it could be quite valuable. Amber is like any gemstone the rarer it is the more its worth. You can research Amber on the internet. I don’t know how to answer you simply. You could write a book on Amber. The Most valuable for collectors has insects, leaves, spiders etc. For jewelry large pieces are more rare and collectable. J

VERY MAD, NV I guess my response would be the same as yours. I hope you know I didn’t get to where we are today by making people mad. If you read my note on the bowls hopefully that would help to explain it. I only had 100 and it took six months. We are trying to step up production, but I cannot and will not sacrifice quality. By law HSN cannot give me your personal information. So if you will do me a favor go to Customer Service search Jay King. Then write to me with a way to contact you. I would love to speak with you personally. J
Michelle, CA Thanks for the interest. We are making bowls as fast as we can.. J
Sue, OR Thanks Sue you made my day, J

June, PA We are working on bringing it back. They ordered ten times what I could produce, give me some time. J
Felicia, NY We cannot sell them directly only on HSN. Please read my note on the bowls. We are making a move. J
Julie, WI No problem. Go to Customer Service search Jay King. That will show you how to contact us and we will take care of you. J
Denise, IL Okay I hear you. If I had a dollar for every time someone made this request I would be rich. It’s not that I don’t want to I have done this in the past. Problem is finding a clip-on finding that will solve the test of time. I thought I had this licked when I came up with a magnetic finding. I even tested it out, one ear only. They were great except when you answered the phone they fell off. Problem is after using them several times they loosen up and fall off. Usually the customer only looses one side. Talk about a problem, so I am working on it. Hopefully I can find something. J
Cathleen, CT I am sorry this happened to you. As far as I can tell they were over sold by mistake, since so many customers ordered at the same time. If you can take the time to go to Customer Service search Jay King. Write me with your personal info and a letter reminding me of what happened. I will get back to you. J
Carol, IL Glad you are happy. That makes me happy. J
Tisha, OH They sold for $399.00. I have seen them in certain places for $1500.00. They are all made by hand one at a time in the USA. Please read my note on the bowls. Thanks for your interest, J
Carol, IL Working on new earring findings. We have many serpentines in the pipeline. J
