In Three's

Here's a piece with faceted blue and purple sapphires and pink sapphire cabochons. It's a pretty piece; wearable everyday. But definitely not lacking in character.

All that glitters!

Gold. Warm. Rich and luxurious. Understandable why countries have been built and ruined by this noble metal. More so these days as prices are as high as they have ever been historically. But of course we do wear jewelry for a different purpose. And to associate it with just material value is totally not the point. We talk about beauty and craftsmanship and all that. At the end of the day if you're happy with a purchase then that's all that matters.

Above is a handmade brooch of multi textured gold sheets with a baroque pearl and diamonds. Will try posting a few more pieces in gold these coming weeks in time for summer.

More and more people want variety with their jewelry these days, especially with earrings. While some people are comfortable wearing dangling earrings everyday, some only choose to wear them for special occasions. (I, on the other hand, don't believe in waiting for an occasion to wear whatever you like. But that's for another blog.)

Here's somewhat of a solution I propose: detachables. These are earrings of pink and blue sapphires with diamonds set in yellow gold. The baroque south sea pearls can be worn as drops or can be taken out. Dangling earrings and studs in one piece. To take it even further you can substitute other gems for the pearl as drops. I would think some kunzites, tanzanites and amethysts (to name a few) would go well with the base. Or a big ball of twined gold.
