Good Things...


...Come in threes!
Oh, of course if you're persnickety you could say good things come in fives with this set, as there are technically five pieces...

But let's say threes for fun :)

The middle earrings are little droplets of gorgeous turquoise with colors ranging from the classic eggshell blue to a rich amber brown....

OOoh!! These do something lovely to the heart, don't they?

The second pair are a special stone I've held close for several years now: they are surrounded by a humorous and asymmetrical scalloping otherwise they may look a bit too serious...

They make a Mona Lisa smile start to form with their sweetheart red and reflective grey hematite...
Love!

Last but most certainly not least, a perfect little world of turquoise surrounded by benevolent beams of protective thought: Earth Day Everyday.

These three pieces will be in the Metal Shop in a little while: the big square of Sonora Sunrise chipped an edge and hence, cannot be set.

A small harumph to pay: every metalsmith I know has sad days where lovely stones show their fragility.
Fear not - I have a lapidary setup I'll be putting together in a few days: that stone will find its setting some day :)

Sending you all huge hugs and peaceful teaside chats,
xoxoxo,
Allison

I am just tickled that you are starting lapidary... I couldn't imagine a person more in tune with Mother Earth's special riches. You are so marvelously nifty. Can't wait to see the work you do!!
