A Very Productive Weekend

My sister needed a gift for her boyfriend’s sister.  She requested me to make something for her.  I was not satisfied with just one, instead, I made these new earring pieces now available at my store:

Cinderella Sparkle earrings

Midnight Tears

Fire Tree

As you all are aware of by now, gold prices have gone up.  The price for these items are based on the old gold prices (read: very affordable).  When my stock runs up, I have no choice but to increase the price of my new items as well. 

So what are you waiting for? 🙂

All About Diamonds

But not The diamonds.  I’m referring to my current obsession with Herkimer diamonds.

Herkimer diamonds is the generic term for double terminated crystal quartz that were first discovered among the exposed outcrops of clolostone located in Herkimer, New York.  The stone’s diamond-shaped appearance are natural faces.  This means that the facets appear to have been cut but in reality, the facets were made by nature itself.  This becomes possible with a high percentage of the stone’s unimpeded growth.

In the next post, I will show you photos of what these diamonds look like and how I have interpreted them and incorporated them in my designs.

Stay tuned!
