Currently Coveting - Amethyst



I am not the biggest fan of purple. I mean it is okay, but it is nothing spectacular until I see an Amethyst stone. I really do love this stone. There is something about it that can make a piece seem edgy depending on the cut and delicate depending on the size. I enjoy working with it so much that there are a few pieces available in my store (including the one below).  I am always on the lookout for more Amethyst and different ways to use it. I currently have a strand of Amethyst beads that I am trying to put to good use. I live in Southern California so the piece below is heavily inspired by the ocean.  Staring at the cool blues and greens in this necklace makes me yearn for a nice beach day.

Take a look, have fun and get lost!

Choosing Bezels - Topaz


I enjoy perusing through a selection of bezels because of the vibrant colors. One of the few colors that I have always found myself leaning towards are blues. Picture clear skies and waters - that's the kind of blue I rock with.  Bezels look so simple yet elegant. Throw on your favorite white blouse and you're good! I like to keep two things in mind when deciding on the right bezel necklace.

Color - there is really no compromise for this one. Stick with your ride or die citrus yellow or step outside your comfort zone. This is your opportunity to set the mood for your entire outfit.
Size- this really determines how well the necklace sits. You can't go wrong with ovals (pictured below) and other circular pieces.
