February Birthstone

February’s birthstone is Amethyst.  It’s rich purple color exudes a mysterious energy that evokes calmness.  Most people say that amethyst is spiritually protective of the wearer and can provide contentment.

Amethyst is closely related to Bacchus (godl of wine), Dionysus (god of libation) and Diana (moon goddess and goddess of nature).  Known by psychics to cure sleep disorders and nightmares, this month’s birthstone is believed to also help overcome alcohol addiction.

For those born on this month, here are a few amethyst jewelry available now at my store:

Amethyst is not my birthstone color but its my favorite 🙂

Custom Work

One thing that always gets me excited with this little business endeavor of mine is when a client requests for something I have not done before, meaning: custom work. 

This always presents as a challenge to me because I get to be creative as much as I can without sacrificing the idea or theme that the client wants.  Most of the time, the request will just be a vague as asking for a specific stone, like garnet to represent her birth month, which is January.  With all the exchange of conversations we’ve had over the internet, emails, mostly, I had to make a necklace and earring set using garnet gemstones.

When I make custom work, I always put into consideration what the personality of the client is.  Expect me to always ask:

1.  What is it for or where will it be used?

2.  When do you want it done?

3. Any other special consideration?

After taking all these into consideration, of course, I will have to end up with a design that will also include my signature nest setting.  I will check my inventory to see if I have all the materials.  If not, I will visit my supplier the following weekend.  Otherwise, the creativity begins. 

During the process, my original idea will evolve.  Most of the time I will not stick to my original design but instead, I will make it better!  I think that’s where creativity is best measured.  It is the ability to innovate and create something while in the middle of trying to meet all the specifics.  In the end, I will be happy with the result, and the client happier than I.

So, anyway, here is one of my custom work

Garnet.  Nest setting. Necklace and earring set. Perfect!
