Mostly Raw and Natural...

Just a quick update here for you all!  Here are some of my finds from the gem faires we've been to lately.  My newest obsession is raw, natural gems.  I love all the unique shapes that the gems come in before they are highly processed.  There is just something so beautiful about these stones while they are in their natural state.  Of course, I still love my multi-faceted gemstones and glass beads as well, and here are a few of my newest finds... Great colors for spring and summer!

raw amethyst, blue lace agate geode, ruby fuschite, raw turquoise, and a beautiful chunk of garnet 

amazing amethyst geode, super cool pieces of meteorite, druzy, apatite, and more druzy
I can not wait to start creating with these beautiful pieces!  So excited!

Supply Shopping... Gem Faire!

A couple of weekends ago, my husband and I went to a gem faire.  There are a decent amount of gem faires in our area, and we attend them whenever we need to (and sometimes when I want to...).  My husband is such a trooper going to these shows with me, and helping me find amazing gems and beads!

I did find some great gemstones as well as nice colorful glass beads.  These shows are quite large, and can become overwhelming very quickly.  Over time we have learned how to move quickly and efficiently through the show while getting exactly what we wanted.  Oh, the fun!

Beautiful spring and summer colors!  I can not wait until it is warm and sunny... But for now I shall rely on my creativity to start designing my summer line of jewelry!

Check back later for a more in depth look at all my new findings, including my most favorite new obsession (natural, raw gems!)

Dainty Flower Posts

Spring is quickly approaching, and I have quite the selection of dainty flower cabochons ready to be made into fun little post earrings!  I only have a limited selection of these, and many of these posts will only have 1 pair available for purchase... so make sure you get the ones you want when I list them.  When they are gone, they won't be coming back!

I also have a great deal in my shop where you can choose any 3 pairs of post earrings for a discounted price, so be sure to check out all the posts I have available!  Ooh, these are so much fun!  I love these dainty, romantic post earrings!

Chrysanthemums are back...

That's right folks, my chrysanthemum rings are back for a limited time.  I have a limited supply of these rings, so make sure you get them while they are available.  When they are gone, they will be gone for good.

I have a nice selection of colors and styles.  Some of them are filigree rings, and some are regular silver rings...   This is just a taste of the rings that will be available in my shop, so check it out while they last!
