Forest Shades

I find these to be quite cheery and organic. The colours are varied and intense. Like the edge of the forest on a sunny day.

Mixed agates go with every style and every colour! The chips are stacked on fancy shmancy sterling silver head pins and the ear wires are also sterling silver.

Feel happy yet?

Black & White Day & Night Wisdom & Experience

Love the design of these as its simplicity allows the stones to speak for themselves, while the fact that the stones are different colours adds a rather confident, urban note. lol!

There are so many options with these! Beautiful with any colour, in any combination.

I have another pair just like! But seriously, I can make them with both black stones or white stones. Because that's the kind of crazy power I wield. : )

Aventurine Nuggets on Sterling Silver Ear Wires

Just wanted to highlight these rather lovely dangly aventurine earrings. The nuggets hang from sterling silver posts and are held in place by tiny circles. Only $15.00! They are the colour of money. (Ok, some money.)

Aventurine is said to be useful in attracting money so I thought I'd help the process along by listing the price! Clever, what?! This stone aligns with the heart chakra and helps it to open. Some say that aventurine is especially lucky!
Do you like them?
