Jeff Hapeman

After starting Earth’s Treasury in 2012, Jeff Hapeman began learning the art of gem cutting in 2013, and started focused heavily on Montana Sapphires in 2014. Fast forward 6 years, and Somewhere In The Rainbow submitted “Thing 1 & Thing 2” into the AGTA Spectrum Awards competition on Jeff’s behalf, and won in the brand new category, North American Mined Gemstones!
