About Lone Star Jewelry and Sandy Talen
Sandy Talen is the artist behind Lone Star Jewelry. Since 2003, she has been creating Texas topaz jewelry using the official gemstone of the state of Texas in the official gemstone cut of Texas.
A fifth generation Texan, Sandy was naturally drawn to using Texas-mined topazes in her jewelry design. Texas-mined gemstones range in color from ice white to sky blue, unlike the deep blue Brazilian topazes which are irradiated to create that color.
Sandy's home and studio are in Austin, Texas.
