I don''t know if moonstone counts as a "colored stone"...
I just wanted to share a pendant I just ordered because I think it''s so adorable. It''s like a fat froggie greedily hoarding a big ol water droplet. I think my mother in law will love it!

I used to really love moonstones when I was in highschool. It was so pretty, and so affordable! I don''t know where all my moonstone jewelery has gone to now though :/ Ah well.

I also love that the froggies are hand made. I think hand made jewelery is so romantic :) It might not be as perfectly exact as casting, but the imperfections are part of the charm I think. Maybe when I retire I''ll try to learn to metal smith, lol.

Sally from Heart of Waters. I ordered my lotus ring setting from her, and then found these on her website and thought it would make such a great gift for my mother in law since she loves cute animal jewelry. :)

Lovely moonstone!

A bit off topic, but Sally is really fun to work with.

Oh yes, Sally is great to work with! I can''t wait to get my lotus setting and froggie! I suspect I''ll be going back to her for some more garnet projects in the future :)

Of course moonstones count. If anyone has a problem with that, I'll put my boxing gloves on.


What would the froggy earrings look like? Froggy hanging off the moonstone or Froggy on the ear with the moonstone dangling?

I adore moonstones. I love the froggy necklace. The earrings from what I can see look fabulous.

A wonderful piece! I''ve always had a thing for these fairly accurate representations of nature in jewellery. Love it!

If your MIL doesn''t like Froggie, he has a good home with me. It''s a little whimsical but still pretty.

Why wouldn't it? Someone (Mochi?) even has a Leon moonstone ring. Nice frog! I like frogs.
