Spring is in the air

I don't know about you, but I've had a little spring fever as of late.

I'm thrilled it's staying lighter longer so that when I get off of work I can go play in the backyard.

Seriously on the scale of 1 to 5 in the gardening world I might clear a solid 2.. but that doesn't stop me.

So I thought I would share some garden photos. I know it's a little off topic from my normal Jewelry thoughts.

But if you think about it,
it's all connected, stones come from nature and are a lasting reminder of the colors of spring.

Colorful spring time blooms are a short lived but wonderful gift that
get our creative juices flowing.

Just look at our latest arrivals.

Dendritic quartz, they have these, manganese oxide fissures in the

stones that look like
wonderful plant life, or coral growth. We couldn't resist and we have wonderful plans to make these beauties into wonderful pendants Can't you see them taking center stage with some great accenting stones?

We also have pictured a Tahitian chocolate, color enhanced pearl. The color is so rich and it's luster really speaks to you.

Check out the Peruvian Opal to our left, it looks like a small landscape piece of art. And last but not least our pear shaped Chrysacolor (a combo stone) Azurite and Malachite together to make this incredible beauty.

Nature with it's organic and inorganic processes can bear art in many forms and it's the right time of year to enjoy it all.

So stop by and see them in person.
