Liat Jewelry Celebrity Sighting!

Liat Jewelry Earrings

I was thrilled when Canada’s Premier Ballerina Karen Kain purchased a pair of my gemstone earrings, but I was even more thrilled this past week when I came across a picture of her wearing them.  They are beautiful coin pearl drops with a cluster of black spinel rondelles cascading down the top.  And they look fabulous on her.  Although they are a one-off, I have decided to create an homage to them and will have them available for sale soon on my website.  They will be called the “Sleeping Beauties”, keep an eye out!

The goodies I got in Tucson…

So I have finally started to unpack some of my goodies from the Tucson Gem Show 2013, and I am happily busy deciding what I am going to do with everything.  I also have some Sterling PMC (Precious Metal Clay) orders this week, and I am going to blog about the process I use over the next few days.

But for now here are the goodies:

First off are the Pyrite “Sunburst” Pendants I picked up.  I am thinking of adding a heavy silver chain, or maybe even a dark brown leather cord.  And they will be long I think, maybe 24″ – 26″.  These sparkle with gold in the sun.

Next I bought some beautiful spirit quartz pendants that have both blue and brown in the stone.  Again I think I will go with a long brown leather cord.

New for me this show were “large hole” pearls.  These happen to be South Sea Pearls, (oh my), and they fit perfectly over leather cord.  You can probably tell that leather cord was big for me this year too.  I already know what they are going to become, and I will post the result in the next few weeks.

Another favourite, but not new for me… amethyst slices.  I will have them drilled front to back, and add a cluster of gemstones at the top, they will also be long, but I think on a heavy gold vermeil chain.

Finally here are my favs from the show.  BLACK DIAMONDS!  I have never bought diamonds before and it was so cool.  These are going to be added to my precious metal clay pieces.  These, (along with the sapphires and rubies I bought), are safe to fire, albeit carefully, in my kiln.  I will now be able to offer my clients the addition of precious stones into their custom silver and gold charms.
