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.

oh Cassie, these are so stunning! Man, are they all from that shop? I recognize so many of my favorites from there I can not WAIT to see what you make with them.

I'm trying to decide which stone I want to pay you big bucks to create something special for me with, hah! No, seriously! For some reason, colorful me is finding myself really drawn to that sparkly black squarish one. If you're not hoarding it away (which would be ok, haha!) I may want to talk to you about a custom order for a ring with that stone! Let me know-email me :)
