I recently splurged on nice quality gemstones at a bead show and tried to focus on birthday gemstones.
For March, I created a line of aquamarine jewelry and kept the color scheme simple, pairing some with gold and some with silver. I was surprised how well they have been selling because I increased prices some (due to higher costs of materials) but I am going to replenish one store today.
The pink opal I purchased to bump myself into a new vision. I tend to work with a lot of blues and greens so I was apprehensive.
But…turns out adding my favorite green via Prehnite popped and looked like a lovely spring bouquet. Paired with gold toned chain, the whole set just came together and got lots of attention on Facebook.
