Looking, playing and designing with beautiful gemstones has cured me of my insatiable jewelry collecting habit. I no longer feel the need to own and hoard jewelry. I now hoard gemstones! There's no stopping me when I see something I love...you know the feeling...it's mine no matter what.

I have enough new designs for a whole new collection! I'm still on the Opulent kick but this time it's even more opulent. Lots of rubies of all shapes and sizes. Lots of quartz with golden and bronze needles. Lots of lush vermeil. Lots of long necklaces and necklaces good for doubling up with shorter ones. Gorgeous green garnet nuggets with gold. It's a bit more primal then refined this time, nevertheless lush and opulent, if not more. Too bad I won't get this new batch of designs online. It just takes tool much work and time to do so in this busy season. If you are around here then you might catch me at a show. My special love is rings so you will see lots of rings. One for every finger at least.
The ruby set below is only part of the new ruby items. It's more refined and delicate than the the rest of the new designs but ruby calls for it. It took awhile for me to finally decide to put this unprofessional photo up. I have a pet peeve about ugly photos. We'll see how long I can stand to look at this photo before taking it down.
