Phillip and Sharon Iaquinto started Stones to Wear in 2006. Phil's Mother left Sharon an Austrian Crystal necklace, beautiful but too long. She converted it to a double strand and was bitten by the jewelry bug! As she designed other pieces of jewelry, she would wear them to work. Almost everyday Sharon would leave for work in the morning, and come home without her jewelry, either having sold or given it away . Thus, a business was born. In the 8 years that Stones to Wear has been in business, the business has blossomed. Sharon always had a flair as an artist working with stained glass, fabric and other medias. Phil didn't start designing jewelry until several years later. Now, Sharon and Phil do arts and craft shows almost every weekend and have a customer base across the nation and with international clients in England, Scotland,Europe and as far way as Australia . Stones to Wear is a family business with their daughter Lauralee assisting with the designing and in manning the booth at their shows. It is the goal of Sharon and Phil to design beautiful, hand crafted jewelry that is affordable for everyone.
