I’ve had my eyes on this collection for a while and I finally nabbed these stones during Susan Lenart Kazmer’s recent gemstone sale! I love Chrysoprase and the size of this stone will be perfect in a pendant. I have plans for the long teardrop-shaped Amethyst to be used in an earring. I find that I’m doing more asymmetrical earrings these days…I love to mix thing up! The small Rainbow Tourmaline can be used along with other stones and bronze domed components in a ring or on a bangle or perhaps another earring (I think one can never have too many earrings!). I’m finding spending time in my metals studio is very rewarding. Like getting back on a bicycle after a long hiatus, I’m regaining my “balance” and learning to “pedal” faster as my jewelry-making skills resurface. I’m making lots of bezels this week using both fine silver bezel wire and sterling silver gallery wire.  I’ll have several finished pieces to show you soon!
