When I was younger, I didn’t like pink. In fact, if anyone would’ve asked, I probably would’ve said I hated it. But something happened around age 35 and I suddenly started loving pink. Now, pink or at least pinkish is a standard color in my wardrobe.
While I really don’t think of myself this way, I am, at heart, a girly-girl. I love make up and jewelry and pretty curls, I played with baby dolls and barbies as a child (and still do when the opportunity arises), and I love flowers and color and all the things that manly men lift their noses to.
All this to say that I am in love with this bracelet, largely because of its color scheme: Pink!
The stones are rose quartz (which, like aventurine, represents peace), rhodolite garnet, red garnet, peridot, and citrine, The sterling plate reads “Speak your peace.”
I should probably take a moment to say that even though I do use certain stones, like the rose quartz, for their representation or symbolism, I am not someone who believes in the power of stones to heal or the mysticism of crystals or anything like that. I like the idea of it, but that’s about it.
Ahem. Back to the jewelry.
I said I’d be using more garnet, and so I am:
These earrings are red garnet with sterling silver and I like them a whole lot. All and all, I’m really enjoying my work in the past week, which is good, because I’ve got a whole lot more to do by June 2.

You could always put the button in resin? I’m on a resin kick right now.
Love the new pieces. Very summery. Make me think of a summer picnic with fruit.
Yeah Julie, I’d be interested in seeing it. Even if it’s not used as a clasp, buttons can be an interesting element in jewelry, at least I think so.
Wow, you’ve done a lot since you’ve been back! I especially like the leather bracelet, and I have a special button from Grammy that I’ve wanted to do something with, but wasn’t sure what to do. I’ll e-mail you a picture, and if it works, I would love to commission you to put it in the bracelet. Take care!
