Sagastone is a mom and pop owned and operated small stone carving and polishing business in Vancouver British Columbia. In our home based basement workshop we creating unique original stone carvings, and mostly locally collected natural crystal and mineral hand polished gemstone pendants.
Our first online shop gone viral in 2013, and just recently celebrated our 5000th sale. The obsession with stones began over 35 years ago, back in east Europe by taking an apprentice job to carve tombstones. Working with basic hand tools, such as mallet and chisel, takes awhile to get use to, but as my master always said ” get to know your stone first” and the rest is just routine. Nothing is more important than this observation, every stone, even if it’s from the same boulder behave different, some times it feels like has a mind on its own. Maybe the best precedents would be proper here, that Michelangelo was looking for the perfect stone for years, to carve one of his best known sculpture David.
However carving a sculpture, begins with a determination. By having an inspiration to create a specific piece, requires to find the perfect stone, or to find the stone what gives the inspiration and speaks to us. We’re mostly following the latter option, since being nature lovers, enjoying hikes and camp-out in the Rocky mountains, what we call a rock paradise, collecting our own stones and gems.
We believe every stone specimen is a nature created art itself, with our human touch, just bringing out the thru beauty what’s hidden inside of it. We never dye, modify, or alter its original state, and never use any chemicals, harmful additives to enhance it.
