Rough Creations is a specialist in creatively cutting large Tasmanian smoky quartz and citrine stones, often sourced from the Gladstone area of north eastern Tasmania.

Rough Creations is a big fan of Tasmanian gem designer Andrew Brown and often uses Andrew’s facet designs sourced from his three books when cutting quartz stones.

Laurie has a background in geology and gemmology and manufactures a small number of bespoke gold and silver jewellery items using skills gained over many years of experimentation.
