...has anyone here ever used gemstones for anything other than jewelry?? Can't imagine what...super expensive and fairly useless gem-encrusted bowl anyone?? I was laughing at the comment that Freke was going to encrust her ceiling with all her new gems, and it's been floating around in my head. Porridge has gone mad
indulge me with some wild ideas!

I wouldn''t mind a gemstone bookmark to keep me happy while I study :)
My mother has a silver bookmark with a tourmaline. Some day, I´ll make its twin for me.

A local jeweller makes the most beautiful plique a jour enamel bookmarks. I really covet one, as his piecework is very delicate and he has a great eye for mixing colours.

Porridge,
I'm starting a collection of rare gems that cannot be used as jewellery. So far, I only have 1.

If I had enough blue and white gems instead of Swarovski''s to put on my wedding shoes I would have used them instead....



Now you''re giving me ideas....

Well, us NorCal PSers will soon be going to a Tiffany/Faberge/Lalique exhibit - I went once with my DH already, and its amazing the things that used to be commonly jeweled - every imaginable type of hair ornament and comb and toiletry and all sorts of smaller things - doorbells, cigarette cases, etc...

Its amazing what people used to be able to afford, and the artistry that went into making such exquisite pieces.

Does he have a website? I love plique a jour.
Not as far as I know. I will ask him for some photos when I see him on Saturday.

This is starting to sound R rated in a PG forum.

I saw a diamond encrusted iPod at a gemstone show.

They had a contest years ago on jewelry telesvision and the winner was someone who put cads all over a fireplace.

Brooch but a paperweight would do in the meantime.

Curious - what is it? Sorry if it was mentioned in another post.

It could totally work in a pediatric setting, it would serve to distract the kiddies from crying and biting, lol.
