Gleneden Beach

We got back from the beach last week. We didn't want to go home!! The weather was great besides some fog. We spent a lot of time walking on the beach, playing in the sand and running from the FREEZING cold water!

My aunt is selling her beach house :(  I will be soooo sad when we can't use the house anymore. I've been going every year since I was around 5 or so. There are so many special memories I have there. Its the only place where I feel completely relaxed and myself. 

Of course I went to my favorite crystal shop, the Crystal Wizard which is located on the Gleneden Beach Loop. I bought a Lemurian Seed Crystal that I had been admiring the year before. I haven't had a chance to take a pic of it but its about 6 inches long, pale pink with some beautiful companion crystals at the base. 

Now its back to reality. I have two more summer pieces to finish and am also working on a good friends wedding jewelry (pics coming soon...). Then, starting my fall pieces. My first fall piece will be made with padparadscha sapphires which is a gorgeous and very rare sapphire. It is a color shifting stone which changes from orange to salmon depending on the light. I can't wait to work with this stone. 

Atargatis, the Mermaid Goddess

I finally got a piece done after about a month of not creating anything. This piece was inspired by the story of Atargatis. The first known mermaid stories appeared in Assyria, ca. 1000 BC. Atargatis, the mother of Assyrian queen Semiramis, was a goddess who loved a mortal shepherd and in the process killed him. Ashamed, she jumped into a lake to take the form of a fish, but the waters would not conceal her divine beauty. Thereafter, she took the form of a mermaid — human above the waist, fish below.

I love the colors and textures of this one. It features a gorgeous abalone and pearl pendant. I've used white druzy pearls, peacock keishi pearls, whole abalone shells, fine silver hill tribe molten nuggets and sterling silver bali beads.

Big Sale!

I'm having a sale - Buy 1, get one free sale! Its only for one week so hurry!!

Happy 4th!

I know, I've been a bad blogger! The past few months have been very stressful. My grandma was sick, another friend was hospitalized and I re-injured my knee. Knee is getting better and my grandma and friend are both out of the hospital. Things are looking up :)

Needless to say, I haven't made anything for weeks! I'm going to start creating again next week. I'm nearly finished with my summer line and will be starting my fall line within the next month or so. I always worry I will run out of ideas for pieces. But I always seem to find gorgeous new stones I can't wait to work with so luckily that hasn't happened.

We are going to the beach in two weeks. I can't wait! Either can Apollo. He recently graduated pre school. Can hardly believe he will be starting kindergarden in the fall. Its full day kindergarden and I'm heartbroken!  

The photo pictured was taken by my hubby, Jeff. You can find it for sale in his shop - http://www.scooyouphotography.etsy.com
I am so lucky to be able to use all these beautiful pics in my blog!

I'm still having a sale. Everything is 40-80% off. I made up some scratch off coupons today to include with orders. 

We were thinking of going to the Blues Festival to see fireworks tomorrow but decided against it. With the Vancouver show being closed this year, they are expecting attendance to be doubled! We can see fireworks from our backyard so we are staying home and having a BBQ instead. 

Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th!!
