THURSDAY CHALLENGE - Jewelry

Thursday Challenge participants here

Without knowing the theme of this week, I decided last week to put some order in my fashion jewelry.

With almost 10 times holidays in Egypt over the last 9 years I had bought each time fashion jewelry in semi precious stones because they were so beautiful and cheap that I couldn't resist.

The result is this :

a box

and three necklaces in detail

Photobucket
Hematite and turquoise

Photobucket
A mixture of stones

I have to admit that I bought them because of their beauty without knowing the name of the stones. But once at home I asked a friend and specialist who found out that the stones are : Agathe, amethyst, turquoise, malachite, Lapis lazuli, quartz of different colors, citrine, coral, fluorite, hematite, tiger eye and jade.

Don't tell me I could open a shop !

You sure have lots of precious jeweleries there, gattina. I only have a boxful of brooches for my headscarves, the rest of my jeweleries are the gold, the only metal I can tolerate due to sensitive skin.

I make beaded jewelry similiar to this Gattina and yours is beautiful. Gemstones are wonderful in their color and hues.
