The Weekly Special - and More!

Weekly Special!!!

This simple yet elegant bracelet is made from rainbow fluorite beads. Each bead has a slightly different coloration to it making this a dynamic bracelet that your friends will all love! Each link is lovingly handcrafted from gold colored wire to best accent the colors in the rainbow fluorite.

This bracelet is approximately 7 3/4 inches long. I can easily shorten this bracelet but I can not lengthen it with out adding different beads into the pattern because these are the only beads I have like this!

Gem Stone Lore:

Fluorite: The name for this beautiful stone comes from the Latin word "fleure" which means "to flux." It's thought that fluorite helps bring calm, a sense of connection to the universe, and symbolizes fresh beginnings just like a beautiful rainbow after a storm.

This week it's only $8 plus $2 shipping and handling to anywhere in the world!

Exciting News!

As you probably remember, I had to give up my radio show awhile ago because I've been too ill to meet the commitment. Well, a couple of weeks ago Rod contacted me and asked me if I wanted to write the weekly artist feature for the station! I was so excited! Basically it's going to mean that each artist who gets featured here on my Friday's Featured Artist will also get the expsure of being the featured artist on Block Head Radio! We're about a week off, but that's ok, nothing like spreading out the love! Go check out to see the first one!

Another lovely special Ruthie! And congrats on the feature articles on BHR! You do great interviews so you are perfect for that job! And as for my favorite of your new listings, I like the Aztec necklace because I'm in awe of your work with all those teeny tiny beads and how you can turn them into something so gorgeous!

Lovely special of the week! Those beads are cool! And I love how you put a little back story with them :)

And congrats on getting to write for BHR! So happy for you :)

My fave is the Simple Hoop Earrings with Blue Spiral Beads...but the Purple Ice Dreams Set is definitely right up there! Love the colors of both!

The bracelet is lovely, but if I can make a suggestion? I'd re-photograph it on a different color background. The pink background doesn't allow the colors of the fluorite to really show off.

Love the purple ice dreams set - and so well priced, holy cow! Congrats on the Blockhead articles, that is great news :)
I'm not trying to win your contest, btw, as I know that wouldn't be fair, but I have to comment, you are one of my daily 'have to visit' blogs :)
Take care,

Kudos, Ruthie!! They choose the perfect person for the job. :D

I like the hoop earrings too. The aquamarine beads are so fresh looking.
