The stones are among some of the most lovely I've ever worked with.
I just didn't think they needed more than simple scallops to embellish them.
Picture frames for the art of the earth:
A Landscape Jasper that holds true to its name-
a bright sky above coral sands.
An Imperial Jasper that looks like the sun rising behind mountains.
Linear and deep, with slender strips of druzy tracing its contours.
And a turquoise that gleams.
I'm a sucker for a good green turquoise.
One with high gloss and rich color.
I'm not normally one of these that gets moved to tears over stones,
but I must say:
These three are special.
Say it Softly Ring- Landscape Jasper
Alis Volat Propriis
"She flies with her own wings."
A statement on strength, substance, and self-reliance.
Say it Softly Ring- Royal Imperial Jasper
Collige Virgo Rosas
"Gather, girl, the Roses."
A statement on celebrating youth and living in the moment.
Say it Softly Ring- Turquoise
Esse Quam Videri
"To be, Rather than to Seem."
A statement on being authentic, real, genuine and proactive.
Which reminder do you need . . .
In the shop randomly throughout the day.
Happy Saturday, everyone.
Hold tight to those dear to you.
