my pretties

i went into l.a. this weekend for a few things, and left with quite a few unexpected finds that i just have to share–they’re just that beautiful.

iolite, peridot, carnelian, oh my!

pictures don’t do them justice, but i hope you can see the sun-drenched colors and micro facets, which throw off a ton of light and sparkle. i’m picturing earrings galore! and then there are these…

the many shades of aquamarine

…gorgeous aquamarine in luscious colors and my favorite cut: imperfectly perfect. this is a necklace that will show up soon in the shop!

paisley power!

oooh, i love paisley!  i just learned that it’s supposed to be an artistic rendering of buddha’s hand, so that made it perfect that it had 7 spots–one for each of the major chakras.  so i added 7 gemstones, representative of each chakra: garnet, carnelian, citrine, peridot, apatite, iolite, moonstone.   each one is attached to the pendant with gunmetal wire.  the pendant dangles 2 inches from a gunmetal chain, measuring 19 inches in length.  finished with a gunmetal lobster clasp.

it’s available at my etsy store for $24 USD.  part of the new jalopy collection.

like a moth to a flame…

i love orange!  so i love carnelian, and these faceted beads are eye-catching and just flat out fabulous.  i’ve paired them with 3 tiny micro-faceted beads of hessonite, an orange garnet, for maximum orange.  the facets throw off the light as these individually wire-wrapped beads dangle from your ears.

they’re available at my etsy store for $38 USD.  personally, i’d pair them with the pure warmth necklace.

i’m still donating $5 for each item purchased through my etsy store to the aid organization of your choice to help the victims of the haiti earthquakes.

pure warmth necklace

fragile but fiery: faceted carnelian rondelles in deepening shades of orange culminate in a faceted carnelian center stone. each stone has its own sparkle that dazzles in the light. the sterling silver lobster clasp secures it on your neck.

necklace is 19 inches long.

it’s available at my etsy store for $108 USD plus shipping and handling.
