New gemstone jewellery

I’ve mentioned more than once – I have a lot of gemstones!  I thought my Christmas show would be a good opportunity to make pieces with gemstones, in order to make a tiny dent in the collection!

Here are a few:

I've had this beautiful piece of amazonite laying right next to those aqua beads for quite a while; and it wasn't until recently that I noticed how well they go together!

Another lovely piece of amazonite, with black onyx to pullout the colors of the stone!

Carved striped onyx with a smiling, and heavily patinaed figure.  Onyx is purported to help you determine true friends, which is why I thought this happy fellow went well with it.

Now, lapis jewellery!  If you are on Instagram you may have noticed the picture I posted of the pile of lapis lazuli I was lucky enough to acquire!  It sure is pretty, and these are just a few of the pieces I will be making with it.
