May Birthstone – Emerald Colors

  • May 19, 2010 9:40 AM

My Etsy shop:

It has been long since I’ve visited my blog site, but here I am. Finally found the time. You know what they say – “if you do not have time, make time”,  so I found an hour or so to dedicate to some of my favorite Etsy items. So here we go:

First of all let me present to you two of  my new May Birthstone Chrysoprase rings:
My facetted  Chrysoprase set in myJewelry ring created from Sterling silver and Gold.

I have a magic box full of beautiful stones, which I’ve collected through the years. I found two lovely Chrysoprase stones and the first one is this one:

Here is the second ring:
May Birthstone – Oval Chrysoprase Cabochon Flower Shaped Sterling silver Jewelry Ring.

After going through other Etsy shops I found two more stunning  pieces, which I could not leave out:

Ella sings Gershwin
by artist DavidRickert.

The artist  presents us with a semi-abstract portrait of the Legendary jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald and her Gershwin album. The portrait was originally painted on canvas .

Portrait of Ella Fitzgerald

My immortal Ella. I keep quite a remarkable number of her disks.  Will love to listen to her forever!

And last, but not least my favorite Etsy friend Peylu:

The multi media artist Peylu

Here is a beautiful photograph of hers which she calls

Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven



She says : “One of my Peacock friends at the local zoo posed for posterity.He was rather proud of himself having just flown down the tall oak tree with a perfect landing.”

The print is signed, dated and delivered to your door via post in a protective sleeve/sturdy bend proof mailer.

When you enter all the three shops presented here I am quite certain you’ll enjoy viewing  many more awesome art finds!

Aquamarine – Stone of March – Spring is Here

  • March 13, 2010 1:55 PM

It seems that Winter has just given up to an early Spring.  It all began on Mid February .It seems that only yesterday,  the official winter season has begun here in the Middle East, and before I could feel the chilly cold winds I’ve known from all the former winters, having to choose which  heavy coat to wear, which scarf  to adapt to  my outfit, and so on, it has suddenly decided to change. Without  early notice, Spring has arrived. You know what I mean –  birds chirping  messages to each other, butterflies in the air, mosquitoes and lots of signs of Romance such as missing someone you used to love once…

Now it is  MiddleMarch. and I have brought a few items here which I think will go well with the this time of the year:

Large Queensland Boulder Opal and Sterling Silver Necklace

I know, you’ll be thinking –  this is an Opal, and the stone of March is an Aquamarine?  Well – you are quite right. Only – this Opal stone has numerous hues in it, among them – a tiny bit of red, Ochre Yellow, sky blue and Aquamarine. So even though it is an Opal it is definitely a March stone!





Aquamarine, Sterling Silver and Gold Pendant with Garnets, Aquamrine and Gold beads necklace

My Large Organic Gold Plated Sterling Silver hoops are no doubt a light pair of hoops which will go perfectly with all Spring outfits:

I searched Etsy today and found more items related to Spring:

1.  Lampwork beads – Purple fairy Bells in Gaialai’s shop:

 Purple Fairy Bells

They seem to be so light and lovely – just like bells tingling gently in the air.

Then I found this cute tiny fluffy chick in a shop named “formydarling”:

And a cute colorful handbag with red and white stripes just in time for Spring and Summer


Soulder bag, Everyday purse, White & Red Canvas

There are still so many beautiful items in the Etsy spring collection . You only have to choose!
