A retail store of finished, often one-of-a-kind items chosen for their natural rock beauty.
Rock Solid/Artistry Workshop of Riverton, Wyoming is a hive of creativity in Rock. Our retail store is a centrally located facility giving artists and crafters a place to teach and learn.
The lives of those who find joy, creativity and satisfaction with the act of creating arts and crafts is inter-twined with the community we know as Wyoming.
We want this facility to exhibit this dynamic relationship.

The Rough and slabbed rock has been collected through estates. The collection started as a personal rock pile of my husbands' over 40 years ago. It has taken over our yard and we have decided to put some of the items up for sale.
The majority of the Product is from Wyoming and dates to the 50's and 60's when many lapidary rock mining claims existed in Wyoming. Enjoy seeing the specimens and material which is not available due to closure of lands and loss of mining claims.
Additionally, there is rock of which we do not know the origin. We will just state it is agate, jasper or other generic term. Some of the slabs were in the mix of different estates - and often the cutter had some other idea and so we ended up with a collection of different depths, many end-cuts and some varing depths (must have taken it out of the saw, then started again!) A real mish-mash. We will try to give as accurate descriptions as possible.
