About Me

GemPunk Jewelry was established by Gem W. in 2007. Gem is a recent graduate of the University of Washington, with double degrees in Biology and Aquatic and Fisheries Science, with a minor in Environmental Science. She's a consistent con-goer, frequenting local conventions around the Pacific Northwest.

Gem has held a long-term interest in post-apocalyptic science and culture, which lead to various experiments in altered "scavenged" art. She quickly found that the Steampunk genre fits perfectly with her tinkering nature.

Gem currently lives on Whidbey Island in Washington State.
