Go Green…Emerald Green, That Is!

20064694

We may celebrate Earth Day and all things green in April, but May is the month for glittering green emeralds. I bought these emeralds some time ago, just because I thought they were beautiful and I couldn't leave them behind. At the time, I had no idea what I was going to do with them. However, they’re about to become the main component of my latest jewelry design.

Emeralds have always been my favorite gemstone (along with diamonds, of course), and not just because emerald happens to be my birthstone. There’s just something about them that fascinates me and has since I was a child. So when the inspiration struck, and I knew exactly what design I wanted to put them in, I was anxious to get to work. With today’s arrival of some needed tools, I’m about to do just that. These little gemstones will soon become a pair of fabulous earrings. I have a necklace design in waiting as well, but that’s another post for later.

So, as we enter the month of May, it seems only fitting that my first jewelry design to be included in my blog should be done in my birthstone. I’ll share my progress as I go, and of course the final product! In the end, the big decision will be, do I put them in my shop or, since my birthday is on the 3rd, keep them for myself?!
Hmmm…
