Picture Jasper Big and Bold Necklace

Oh how I love Picture Jasper. It is a completely natural gemstone, and is so earthy, and natural. This is a huge heart shaped Picture Jasper gemstone bead, that I made a wire wrap bail for, and then used gold tone fancy scroll jump rings, to make the chain. It has a magnetic closure, for easy putting on, and removing. Even though it is bid, and bold, it is not at all heavy on the neckline. It feels very comfortable, and looks stunning. It is available for purchase in my Etsy store. I offer a free layaway plan, and combined shipping, so be sure to check out all my great items.

Make A Chain Mail Bracelet With Riogrande

Check out the tutorial for this lovely chain mail bracelet. Riogrande is a wholesale jewelry supplier, and if you have never checked them out you should. They make this look so easy, trust me it is not. I have been trying to learn chain mail, and it is quite hard, in my opinion. I hope to master this someday. I love this one.

Fun Friday Zuda Gay Etsy Shop

Well it is Fun Friday, again. This week I am featuring Zuda Gays Etsy Store. She make polymer clay beads, and they are simply lovely. I was born in August, and the Sunflower is the flower for that month. I love Sunflowers, they are so bright, and cheery. These beads are large, and would make a lovely focal bead, for any of your jewelry creations. She has lots of different types, and she will do personal requests. So if there is something you would like to have made out of polymer clay, into a bead, drop her a note, and maybe she can do it for you. Her prices are very reasonable, and I did not find them to be overly expensive at all. If you like unique, and different jewelry pieces, be sure to check out her rings. I love them! I love the blue, and brown color combo. It is such a lovely color combination, and it looks so lovely on her hand. Be sure to stop by Zuda Gays store, and show her some love.

If you want to be featured on Fun Friday, just leave me a comment, with your store address, or crafting blog address, and you can be featured too.

Is It Citrine Or Imperial Topaz

Citrine is the birthstone for November. While it is a lovely yellow gemstone, Imperial Topaz, which is a yellow natural form of Topaz has the much higher value. Watch this cool video from the Antiques Road Show, and see how one woman became very lucky. You won't be disappointed. If you are like me, and have a bunch of yellow gemstones in your collection, don't just assume they are Citrine. You might want to have them tested.

Thank You To My Top Ten Entrecard Droppers

It is the first of the month, and that means it is time to thank my top ten Entrecard droppers. Please take a moment, and visit each of these cool sites.

I must make a special note to Small Town Mommy. I purchased Entrecard ads for her site, and they were expensive too. I got a whopping 78 clicks in 24 hrs, from her blog to mine. You can say that was well worth the price paid. Wow!
