I really love gemstone jewelry. Well, I really love gemstones, and whatever technique allows me to wears them makes me happy! I’ve been working with stones for a long time, and have featured them on my site before. I was very excited to read that one of the 2018 jewelry trends is gemstone jewelry! Excited because I have some to show, and even more to make:
This pink and green necklace is made from a stone called Lapis Nevada, also known as “peace stone”, in beads and chips, and rose quartz rounds, with glass seed beads, and a toggle clasp, strung on wire. $37.

I hope gemstone jewelry keeps trending high, I have a lot of pieces to make!
January kind of flew past me. The urge to organize always strikes in the beginning of the year, and all of a sudden, I found myself dividing my time between clearing and sorting, both in my stash and online, and making a plan I can follow all year long to get me where I want to go, along with making production goals. Last year, I decided that I was going to make 100 pieces (I was so close, I made 90 pieces in a year!), but that is way too production-centered to sustain. It was a nice challenge, though, no regrets! This year, I’m focusing on beefing up jewelry sections on my website that needs updated designs – more bracelets, stat! Earrings, too. I want to see more newness on my website!
I’m off to make something – if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, have a wonderful last day of January, see ya soon, jool lovers!
