It's Holiday Time?! Happy Thanksgiving!

What?! It's mid November? Holidays are upon us! So I am madly working away in the shop to bump up my inventory and bust out custom orders. It's always a busy time for me but I know that I get a rest in January. I recently pulled out some gorgeous chalcedony beads that I recently purchased from a gem dealer and began a small grouping of holiday party drop earrings (see below).

My husband and I have been cutting and polishing some wonderful and colorful green Wyoming jade in all sorts of shapes (pictured below in one of our first dustings of snow).

I've made a couple of one-of-a-kind groupings of Australian magnesite (below) and Peruvian pink opal pendants (pictured at top of this post).

Both the magnesite and pink opal were bought during the Tucson gem shows a couple of years ago and it's been fun to finally use them. Each stone has it's own little personality: the pink opals are a classic pure pink, girly and serene, and each piece of cream colored magnesite is totally unique with brown veins making an interesting and natural matrix.

Also, I recently made some hammered rings with different faceted gemstones. Mixing and matching colors.

As we head toward Thanksgiving, I hope your holiday season shapes up to be the best ever. Peace!
