Happy Mail Day: Rainbow Sapphires

Oh, Snap! Today's mail is amazing because it includes these special candy-colored gems!

I am so happy to have sourced these gorgeous sapphires! They are the loveliest shades of the rainbow and haven't been dyed or treated. Isn't nature amazing!? What a happy mail day! 



 My head is spinning with ideas! I know that I would love to make one pair of really special earrings with three different shades of sapphire. I envision rustically gorgeous recycled 14k yellow gold with some organic texturing and a brushed finish.  The pale green sapphires would look absolutely gorgeous as rings, and of course there will have to be a few necklaces and bracelets. Oh the possibilities are endless! 

How would you use these sapphires? I'd love to hear your ideas!

I love to see jewelry with a hidden message, so I designed one of my own! I cut this ring from sterling silver sheet, added a little embossed copper design on the top and added a little inspirational stamping on the back - a reminder to find the joy in everyday life.

Some days can be pretty rough, but you can always find a little something to bring you happiness if you simply look around for it!


I really like how it turned out!
