Fall Creative Sparks are flying....

Posted by Cheryl Van Dyck on September 24, 2017 0 Comments

Fall is my favorite time of year, and it always sparks a new surge of creativity.  I've been inspired by some gorgeous new stones.   My favorite new stone is some old stock Australian Dendritic Honey Opal, and I made a new ring as soon as I could!  I've named it Song of the Outback, because it looks like a vista over the dry desert hills of the Australian Outback.    Most of this material is usually just a deep golden yellow with a bit of black.  This one, with its shades of rust and white along with the delicate lines of deep color is really special!

I am currently working on turquoise rings and pendants from this group of stones, and will be posting new work in the shop soon.  I am happy to take custom requests, so if you see a stone that you like, drop me an email to reserve it!

Happy Summer!

I am planning a summer of turquoise blue and dreams of the beach!  I have a wonderful stash of turquoise, chrysocolla, and variscite that will be appearing in new, one of a kind pieces here in the shop over the next few weeks.  Nothing says summer like turquoise and silver!  Stay tuned for updates!
