The second part of the shop update happening tomorrow features plant rolled earrings and a turquoise ring that makes me melt, right in the heart area.
People say that things are "to die for", but this ring is so vibrant, so earthy that I think it's to live for, indeed!
A vein of turquoise, right there in smooth, polished matrix: this is my kind of stone.
Until I am strong enough to do more lapidary, it warms my cockles to use rocks that I would have thought to cab, had I the rough to use.
To make a stone like this, a person has to have ingenuity, trust in the rough material, and a fantastic eye.
It is exquisitely tall, and on the band and backside of the ring itself, I have subtly roll-printed a leaf.
Right around a size 7, this beauty is!
Next up, a pair of wheat grass earrings, rolled from a stalk I found while Anthony and I roamed a small meadow on our way home from Monterey a few weeks ago.
Rosy, vibrant and bursting with vitality!
Turquoise and fern frond earrings.
I don't even know where to begin to express my love for the plant rolled into these beauties, or for the woman who blessed me with the plant.
These are born of friendship, made with love and prayer. They measure 2.5 inches long, dramatic and strong.
The back of the earrings are roll-printed sterling: a leaf placed upon the roller cracked open at the sides, and the effect was so deliriously powerful and magical, like a thunderstorm. I had to put it in something, but it was too small for a necklace - voila, earring backs!
The turquoise is from Crow Springs mine, almost more aqua than turquoise, beautiful speckles of matrix throughout.
This is for the rockingest cowgirl, urban or otherwise!
Be still my heart.
Luminous, luxe and light on their toes, these beautiful earrings measure 2.5 inches long as well, a matched pair of ferns, a lovely satin glow.
As with the rings before them, these pieces can be reserved.
Please send a convo to inquire about their availability.
I will mark them as reserved here on the blog as they go.
Tomorrow as I update the shop, I will be adding three new necklaces that will be surprises: they are beautiful, rare and special, and cannot be reserved.
I cannot wait to show them to you!!!
