Blue Zircon and Gold Pendant...

Okay... these aren't the the best photos... but it will give you an idea.

It's 14KY with a natural Blue Zircon (not to be confused with a Cubic Zirconia, which is a man made.) But it's carved with all little vines wrapping around it culminating with the bezel set 2 carat round stone. It has a bit of an antique style to it.

OH MY! christmas tree...

Oh My! What a crazy tree! My father picked it out... thought it was the BEST TREE EVER! Well, it's interesting, to say the least!!!

So, to fill in the HUGE gaps... we hung as many ornaments as possible. I'm a fan of the bugs :)

before the diamonds...

Soooo... this is going to be covered with diamonds!!!!!! There will be a 1/2 carat bezel set in the center, pave diamonds all around it and pave diamonds on the two leaf shapes on the shoulders. OOOOOO... it will be soo sparkly!!!

(Oh... don't mind my beat up looking hands!!! Been doing tons of polishing!!!!!)


Well... this isn't the best photo... but it gives you an idea. Domed Sterling Silver with a hight polish just reflects way too much stuff... and I don't have the time to clean these up right now!!! These have a little hole at the top of the crown to hole the string to hang them on the tree.

that's a killer bee!!!

Here is the finished sterling silver Queen Bee hair pin. Crazy, huh!!! And to show that it actually works, I tossed it in my hair... and it works!!!
