Natural beauties.

Labradorite array

These photos represent just a fraction of my current gemstone collection. Hi, I have a problem. At least I'm hoarding gems. Gems are small and they don't poop all over your house or make a "professional organizer" gag when she enters the kitchen. (those of you who haven't seen an episode of Hoarders, you should really consider yourself lucky at this point. there are certain images you can never scrub out of your brain.)

Anyhoo - just look at these beauties! I have a hard time committing to setting them in metal - the possibilities are so endless, I hem and haw over each one for quite a while. I want, most of all, to do them justice.
