I was doing an errand yesterday and there was a sign outside a local florist that said "Jules Gems". Naturally, I was intrigued so I had to check it out. She (Jules) has some beautiful handmade sterling silver jewelry on display with an assortment of differnt semi-precious gemstones. I have seen Drusy online before, but (1) much of it is fake and (2) not seeing it in person, you don''t realize how beautiful it is. These are titanium coated druzy. Titanium is a metal that turns color when certain chemicals are applied. I believe they rotate them in a drum. Jules had an array of colors that were out of this world beautiful. After talking with her for awhile and telling her a little about my jewelry knowledge, she asked if I would be interested in helping her at various shows! ABSOLUTELY! She also has a little shop that is about 4 miles from my house. I drove past it and I may have to make a visit in the next week or so as I have my eye on several pieces. I just loved the color of these dangles and how the drusy crytal formations in these stones look like diamonds. Not usually a big sterling silver fan......but I just had to have these!
