Ontario – October 8 .  Twizted Creations hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for their grand opening at 2014 Ridge Rd., Ontario, NY, sponsored by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. The gemstone shop features semi-precious stones and gift items made from stones all over the world.  “Some are from Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, and even Madagascar, said Roxanne Brown.”  Roxanne, with her son, Adam Howe, and daughter, Boe Antonson, are the business owners.

The store displays include many unique gift items and jewelry made from a large variety of stones as amethyst, aquamarine, and rose quartz.  Large quantities of loose stones are available that can be used for jewelry making or home decoration.    Roxanne said she does all the buying herself and has traveled to mineral shows as far as Denver, CO.  Some of the tumbling is done at her home in the basement.  A hard material, such as a Herkimer diamond will take 2-3 weeks of tumbling before it is finished.  Twizted Creations is a member of the Wayne County Gem & Mineral Society.

If you’re looking for that special gift, but not sure what to purchase, gift certificates are available.  Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 AM – 4 PM, closed Sunday and Monday.  Major credit cards are accepted. Phone:  (585) 857-1012.
