The colors for this project were inspired by an outfit I wore not too long ago- a purple sweater with a peacock blue tank top... I had been hoarding this beautiful amethyst briolette (10.97 cts, 17.1mm Length. 10.8mm Width.). The large teardrop briolette pictured is one of 2 beads in my stash. I already have a project-and someone in mind for the other one. The blue briolettes are blue zircon and the blue color on these is just AMAZING!! I love them. The picture shows the pendant I am working on and the earrings. I promise, of course, to post pictures of the finished pieces!! =o)

My her job as a food tester/taster...

Yeah... well she is actually a receptionist at an Accessories company... but you wouldn't guess that from these pictures right? haha

By the way she also works for me as a model for my jewelry ;o) here is one of the pictures from my past photo shoot:

I LOVE my boyfriend!

He has been away for almost 2 weeks and I can't stop thinking about him! Thank God I've managed to keep myself very busy and time seems to be going faster than I thought. It is still not fast enough! He always surprises me but this surprise was so special since this year we are not spending Valentine's day together... I cried when I got these flowers at my job. I really did not expect it! I always think oh how cool would it be to get flowers at work one day for Valentine's day (or for any reason really) and this time I didn't really think about it and I got flowers!!!!! = oD

They are so pretty...

I like to see what other jewelry artists create with the gemstones purchased from my shop. I've seen so many beautiful jewelry pieces created with some of my gemstones!

My favorites are Holly's Rouen and Paloma earrings (, you can see the beautiful Lemon Topaz teardrops, the Rhodolite Garnet diamond shaped briolettes (Rouen earrings), and the huge Green Amethyst heart briolettes (Paloma earrings):
