Re: Some goodies

Minousbijoux - thank you! :) I love your take on that, that it's like Christmas when I post a bunch of stuff. =) The Opal is amazing, going from a bright cyan blue (like swiss topaz) to flashes of green, clear, pink. I could stare at it all day. Pregcurious - thank you. :) I was told the diamonds to...

Re: Some goodies

Hey everyone :wavey: Thank you Chrono and JewelFreak :)) Warms my heart to be back! Ilovegemstones, Thanks! :)) I spent many happy ours on centurygems Ebay store and found at least three opals that reminded me a lot of the one I have in my ring. I ordered two opals and they came promptly and are the...

Re: Some goodies

MTG - Thanks! This was a new vendor for me http://www.etsy.com/shop/danaevansstudio , although her style looks a lot like Janishes in some pieces. I have one opal that I'm going to have set in a pendant as soon as I can and Janish is definitely the one I'm going to contact. Ah, these opals! :bigsmile:

This is my magic ring, the one that I pick whenever I feel I need a boost of color for my day.

Re: Some goodies

A close up. I was a little tentative about the idea at first, setting the diamonds like this wasn't something that I had seen before my inner eye. But when I saw the end result I liked the crazy chaos creativity that surrounds the stone. It's just the right degree of oddly beautiful, for me. :))

Re: Some goodies

Here's my darling. A three carat, literally bubbly, spinel that I stalked for months (over a year maybe) in one of Tan's stores. It looked horrible in the video, but I took a chance and when set, it looks very respectable.

Re: Some goodies

Then the earring(s). Sally came up with this design and I love it. Not too festive alone, it's possible to use them at work, but when worn as a set, a nice combo.

Some goodies

I wanted to show some long overdue pictures of a project that brightened up my autumn. Grayish blue spinels, bought from Tan and accent diamonds from mlopros' Ebays store, shipped off to Sally at Heart of Water. I've been more into sets lately. The metal is silver all around. The first necklace has ...

Minous - Yes, I agree, Liz has totally influenced me!

Thanks Freke, you just inspired me to post a preview of these that are somewhere in the mail right now on their way. I'm impatient! :evil: These are all gray-blue spinels from Tan, including one bubbly 3ct one that I had been stalking forever and won in an auction, jewelry work by HOWJ and then a We...

Chrono! Oooooh, high heeled boots are so great! :loopy: But walking can be, mmm, what it is. I'm grateful that there are designers these days that recognize the importance of comfort in high heels as well. I draw the line on heels that require the presence of my "man-crutch". :wink2: It's ...
