Sneak Peek - Clover Iolite Drops

Happy Monday, everyone! As promised last week, I'm bringing you another update on a new design crafted from my finds at the Tucson Gem Show. I came across these stunning clover-shaped mother of pearl beads, and decided to mix them with some amazing vermeil drops that I hand wrapped with faceted iolite beads. I just love the results. They should be up on the site in the next week or so. Until next time, have a lovely week, and a happy holiday to those of you that have the day off ;)

Sneak Peek - Lotus Love

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fab weekend - I know I did! I had the pleasure of attending the Tucson Gem Show, and came back with some serious booty. Along with today's sneak peek, expect a mini-series of the next couple weeks or so. I've been feverishly making jewelry out of my spoils for the last day (instead of doing homework, of course), and I just had such a hard time picking favorites that I'm going to share a bunch!

Above is something I think I am keeping in my own stash - it's a necklace on heavy silver chain that features a super sweet carved pink chancedony lotus pendant. The colors on the strand that I got vary in size a tiny bit, but they're about 3/4" long and 1" wide or so, give or take. Each pendant will also vary in color slightly. Some are a little more pink, some more purple - but all are perfectly lovely!

6 Legged Chic

Sorry for the crazy late post this week - this semester school is getting a little nuts and I am finding that I barely have time for my usual routines! Hopefully things will be getting better. I'm getting used to my professors, and am adjusting what I do to try and work it out. Now that that's been said, on with my lustworthy find for the week.

While I should totally have been spending time doing homework, I unexpectedly found myself persuing Barney's and found this perfectly delectable necklace from designer Anna Ruth Henriques. It featurs a lovely pendant crafted from crystal, mother pearl, and 18K gold, with a surprisingly chic offset insect detailing. Pure loveliness.
