Rolling In Gemstones!

Today I had a meeting with a lady from a gemstone suppliers - a lovely lady - who fell in love with my cat! She had so many gemstones I was in heaven. I even held in my hands a strand of th most beautiful diamonds which cost nearly as much as my lampwork collection :) Keishi pearls with an incredible luster, rubies - oh I could go on but I would get all you gem lovers drooling over your keyboards!!! Sadly I'm too busy pooling all my money into silver at the moment for my party on Friday!

I've also being doing some mor wire wrapping - I love this one with the ethereal blue of the Chalcedonywith ros quartz, pearls , crystal quartz and more Chalcedony all oxidised. It was a lot of work but well worth it - well I think :)

You must have been in heaven playing with the pretty gemstones. I bet you'll be smiling for at least a week. (I know I would.)

I would've been crying about getting to touch and look but not buy!

I love how your creation "Horizons" matches your new logo - just gorgeous.

Can't imagine having the opportunity to sit in front of all those luscious jewels - what a treat!

"Like Gods I'll Fly" is just beautiful. You can see the work invested in it and your choice of materials is so soothing - really beautiful piece.
