Mother’s Day is Over!

May 11, 2009 | Filed under: Uncategorized

Well, back to reality! Mother’s Day is over. We gathered here for Thai food, a family get-together and catch up time. Now it is time to get serious, especially with a number of events coming up.
I now have in my inventory even more unusual gemstones. Caribbean emerald green amber is exquisite and I have paired it with copper. This is a relatively new amber to the market that comes from Guatamala, Puerto Rico and Mexico. It is not as old as Baltic Amber but still millions of years in age. Just beautiful!
I have had green amethyst in my collection for the past year. For the studio tour I will have pink amethyst in faceted tear drops. Earrings are a definite and I will see what will follow.
I have large square and round purple swirled agates which look wonderful as pendants. As well new pieces in terms of shape, colour and size in turquoise. Labradorite which is an opalescent grey with blues, yellows, greens peeking through, is one of my favourites and again many new shapes and sizes. The list really does go on and on. My goal this season was to have different shapes and i think that I have succeeded. Do come out and have a look.
The Distillery show in Toronto ( May 23 and 24) is less that 2 weeks away, followed by the Beyond the Valley Studio Tour May 30 and 31 ). Click on the links to the right.

Circle Arts Gallery in Tobermory opens this week end on May 16th celebrating 40 years of representing fine artists. I have a number of pieces there and am very happy and excited about that.
Well back to work. Tomorrow I will blog about another gemstone.
