Here I am, giddy like a child, wanting to jump up and down and scream "ohmygodohmygodohmygod!!!!" I have come to realize that I am a hourder of gemstones! OK, not really, because I will eventually let them go to someone who will cherish them as much as I do.
Today, I received my first package of goodies that Prilosec OTC has helped me to obtain. I have made a couple of supply/tool orders using the awards I was given to use towards my passion. The first order I put in was for some semi-precious gemstones to use in my jewelry. As soon as I received it in the mail, I had to open it! I was sitting in the parking lot where my mailbox is located, with my 17 month old baby boy in the back seat, playing away with his baby ipod. He didn't mind waiting, he was content and happy! I opened them up and they just took my breath away!! =) Of course, once we got home, I had to take them out again and look at them in more detail. I am amazed at such beauty and I love how they come from the earth. Natural, organic, and precious. I have several ideas of what I am going to create with these and I can't wait to get started!!
Tonight, I took a few pictures of the stones so you can see what they look like before they are used in my jewelry. The pictures don't do these stones justice, but I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!! =)
In this first picture, the stones you see are as follows:
AA Black Spinel Rondelles, AA Pink Opal Marquise Briolettes, AA Rhodolite Garnet Dew Drop Briolettes, AA Rhodolite Garnet Rondelles, AA Pink Topaz Pear Briolettes, Pink Ruby Pear Briolettes.
