    Wow I love lapis!! That pear is lovely! & Im with Bluegemz, the way you display these gems is so visually simulating. They truly look appetizing to me haha!
    Its the whole plate subliminal!

    Also I found out about leland blue some years ago and thought itd be a wonderful material for sterling silver statement pieces! What a neat history!

    Just finished my little DIY necklace!
    I used leather cord to create an adjustable necklace with a larger peachy-pastel Edison pearl, a 18k rose Gold cup & peg, and a sturdy 14k yellow gold jump ring I had laying around. It can be at minimum 16" or at most 30" long around the neck.

    Ive found that it can also be wrapped 3 times around the wrist as a bracelet.
    Just a little thing but the joy in creating it was the best! 20190805_151956.jpg 20190805_191817~2.jpg

    Ive also thought about making another little Edison pearl pendant and putting each one on one of my dainty 1/2" 14k yellow gold hoop earrings as its such a look! Although theyre a tad bit heavy!

    I have had good experiences and received nice stones from these Instagram vendors:

    Chimerastones
    rockhoundgaryb
    coloradogemworks
    r2rockz
    cabochonsforsale
    cabochons4sale
    cabsentminded_

    These two I haven't purchased from yet but I follow & they seem to have nice gems. I will probably make a purchase someday:
