Frog and Bear Creations

Just in time for Christmas, we have another local artist to tell you about! Diane is a lapidary who lives in Lake George. Some of you may know her husband, Jerry, from our Florissant Ace Hardware store. Diane is very talented and loves creating. She launched her business in 1998. She uses a variety of stones, gems, beads and metals to create amazing jewelry, belt buckles, beadwork, and more.

From Diane’s Facebook page:

Custom handcrafted wire wrap and beaded jewelry – Scrimshaw pendants – Custom Carved Cabs – Wire wrap on commission – please inquire for custom pieces – Lapidary rough – gemstone slabs & cabs – I have been selling online since 1998 and on Bonanza since 2008 using Paypal as my payment processor.
I was diagnosed with diabetes in 2001. My diabetes is adult onset type 1 insulin dependent along with other health issues and the need for expensive medications the cost each month is over $300.00. My insurance resets each January and the cost for all my medications is around $2000.00 for that month. My jewelry and gemstone sales help me to cover the costs. Each and every purchase made is appreciated greatly!”
