GEMSTONES 101

   




I thought today I would share some recent jewelry I have been working on. It seems my love of gemstones
will never change, I am always in awe of their natural , simple, and organic beauty. Their perfect imperfections always shine through, very similar to people I think, and that is the best part!
Lately I have really enjoyed trying to learn more about stones, their qualities and properties. In the necklace I made I fell in love with the stone that dangles at the bottom called selenite. It was named after Selene, Greek goddess of the moon, and is known to bring mental clarity.  It appears to have a moonlike glow. I have attached a small shard of kyanite on top of it, which promotes peaceful energy.
The earrings are made using some gorgeous labradorite briolettes.  Labradorite is a protection stone, giving you clarity of mind and protection from negative energy.

I hope you enjoyed the brief gemstone 101 lesson! There is so much to learn about stones, and it is fascinating!  
Thank you for visiting and always your thoughtful and kind words!

Faye and Earle had come to a halt with their arms around each other. When the dwarf lowered his head like a goat and tried to push between them, she reached down and tweaked his nose.
Tod went back to the living room. The phonograph record had been changed to a fox-trot and Earle was now dancing with Faye. He had both his arms around her in a bear hug and they were stumbling all over the room, bumping into the walls and furniture. Faye, her head thrown back, was laughing wildly. Earle had both eyes shut tight.
Miguel and Claude were also laughing, but not the dwarf. He stood with his fists clenched and his chin stuck out. When he couldn鈥檛 stand any more of it, he ran after the dancers to cut in. He caught Earle by the seat of his trousers.
