    It's exciting to see all her work like that!

    However silver is considered semi-precious. Bronze is not considered precious but it is a more expensive metal than pewter. There's more strength in brass, bronze, copper compared to costume jewelry metals. Actually in the Victorian era even in the 1900s silver was considered a costume jewelry caliber. Precious metals are: gold, platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, palladium. Though rhodium is only used as a plating metal because of its brittle properties.

    Is pearl considered a stone? I figured it comes from a living bein, literally clam spit that hardened over time. Maybe if it has crystal properties it could be considered so. After all humans produce kidney stones lol

    I really enjoyed watching that but wanted to see more. So interesting. The scorpion was a little freaky but still kind of pretty. I hate bugs. I wanted to grab everything and run. Run far and fast. She really is talented. Nice to see an artist be able to support themselves on their art. Doesn't happen often. Let's hope she will be able to do that for years to come.

    Wow, this will be a very interesting episode. I actually haven't seen some of those headpieces, I guess she hasn't shown us the scorpion one and the one with faces, right?..~

    Arg, what a tease! It took me a few days to finally work (kept opening the video on different computers till one finally played the clip) It was great to see - I actually really like the doll she puts the scorpion helmet on, she has intriguing features! I think the scorpion helmet would suit a "desert" themed doll very nicely.

    Sailor Orbit - I think here Marina is just using "precious" to refer to the fact she's not using costume jewellery materials, cheap metal or plastic imitation stone's. If this is going onto TV then most people won't be concerned about their chemical classification, they'll simply be surprised to hear those dolls are wearing incredibly elaborate headpieces made out of bronze/silver/gold.

    You can see at one point she actually says "I think the reason I use real stones and real metals and real, um, precious objects....." The focus is precious - precious stones, metals, clam-spit, fabric... etc...

    When I worked for Victoria Buckley Jewellery we were asked to make a conscious effort to refer to the "stones" as "gems", and differentiate the two types of pearls (freshwater or saltwater) when speaking with customers. Bust most books on gemstones will include Pearl as it's commonly used in Jewellery, some even include Coral, and that's technically a 'skeleton' :-( It's also the "birthstone" for June.
