This high gem quality Tanzanite is usually set in gold. I plan to combine it with glowing Rainbow Moonstone to make ethereal sterling silver necklaces and bracelets. The blue shimmer from the moonstone will compliment the mystical, purplish blue sparkle from the Tanzanite. This unique combination is a sure winner!
I found this Raw Labradorite in the rough bursting with fire and decided that it is a perfect match for a dragon motif. I am accenting it with Pyrite Druzi that matches with a gold and blue fire of its own. Kyanite and free form Citrine perfectly balance this mythical look.
Here is a CAD picture of our new Phoenix Fire Bird rising upwards.
As the sun sets only to rise again, so the Crimson Fire Bird, known as the Phoenix, rises from the ashes of its past infused with renewed energy and strength. Her fiery feathers and a crimson Garnet gemstone enhance her magnificence.
I collect this sea glass myself, from an island in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Massachusetts.
I call it Vanishing Sea Glass because since the 1800’s it was a regular practice to throw discarded glass into the sea. In the past 50 years it has been banned. To find rounded enough pieces of sea glass in a bright color is becoming a rare find. Glass from the 1800’s can range from a light purple to deep blue. The most common sea glass found now is frosted white and different shades of green. Much of the lighter, softer green is from old coke bottles from the early 1900s. A lot of the brown sea glass comes from beer bottles. Dark blue would most likely be from medicine bottles.
Every summer my brother and I ride out in his boat to a special island where large barges used to burn refuse after throwing all the glass overboard. The sea would break up and churn the glass shards, rubbing them against the rough rocks and sand with its waves.
After 50 to over 100 years of this natural tumbling process, we bring you beautiful vanishing sea glass set in sterling silver and adorned with silver starfish, swordfish, seahorse and shells. Stay tuned for our newest designs that should be ready in about 4 to 6 weeks.
I am not drinking from that bottle! It is connected to the polishing wheel to keep it moist while polishing the stones.
I assure that each stone has a high shiny polish.
I have just returned from my trip and would love to hear from you. Please e-mail or call me with any questions or suggestions.
Peace and Abundance,
