June's Birthstones

pearls have been used for centuries around the world; They are the only gems from a living creature, and they require no additional polishing in order to reveal their beauty. Natural Pearls can be extremely expensive, but with the introduction of cultured pearls, there are many cheaper alternative now.

Alexandrite has a lovely green color, and often changes color with incandescent light. It's quite rare, so there are a lot of man made alternatives that mimic the same properties as the Alexandrite.

The third birthstone for June is the Moonstone. Moonstone often come in a variety of colors such as blue, champagne,green, peach etc. I just love the creamy color of the moonstone.

I did not realized that the month of June had 3 birthstones: Pearl, Alexandrite and moonstone. Did you know that June had multiple birthstones?

Artist Feature - The Alchemists Vessel

So, this week's artist feature from the HAF forum is Alix from The Alchemists Vessel and the theme for this week is Vacation. Who doesn't need a vacation?  So I have selected a few pieces that remind me of the sea. Anything that remind me of the sea make me think about a relaxing vacation at the beach. First, let's start with this watch to remind you it's time for a vacation :-)

This Bracelet is just airy and elegant.

 I love this two tone bracelet. The contrast in colors is beautiful

and to finish it off, this elegant ring, just to make a statement.

A new necklace

I call this necklace Felice!! I used a leftover round silver ring that I had created for another project to make this necklace. I hammered the ring and used  more silver wire to wrap around it, and I like the way it came out. It is quite small (about the size of a nickel). A dainty a feminine piece that can be worn virtually with any outfit! So, what kind of outfit do you think will showcase this necklace better?? please let me know. You can find this necklace on my website

Another Springtime feature

Don't ask me why but these candles form Reef Botanicals make me think of spring. I like the colors and even though I can smell them from the picture, I can only imagine how beautifully they smell. 

When I think of spring I also think of flowers, so the print of this beautiful peony caught my eye immediately
Couldn't resist sharing. It's from a handmade Artist shop called Fabric of my mind. Larissa is a multi talented artist and she never ceases to amaze me with her energy and creativity.

Last but not least, this beautiful multicolored shell bracelet form Yankee Burrow creations . Very pretty, flirty and fun. I just love the assortment of colors. I can just see myself playing with those shells on my wrist.
