CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I know a few of us share a passion for crystals and jewelry as well as makeup so thought I would start a thread on this. Share your stash, finds, whatever!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

One of my favorite shops for unique more kinda raw looking crystal pieces is the Twisted Witches shop on ebay.  I have 3 of their pieces and have to stop looking at their shop because I'll buy more.  They are totally ok with best offers too.  Highly recommended.

Ohh that's very pretty @melanito! Thx!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I saw this on Free People has crappy reviews and is expensive but who doesn't want this??

Thinking about this thread makes me wish they would bring back Project Accessory.

Oh wow I didn't know this existed. Was it the designers who were competing in project runway

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@Titian06 I'm sorry to hear about your beloved cat.  I have three of my own that I love dearly.  And I certainly recall the artist Titian from my "European Visual Tradition" art history class in college!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Thanks, @greeneyedgirl107!  Yes, I took three quarters of Art History.  When we had our test over that period and the answer was Titian, I put "meow" in parenthesis after "Titian."   (The instructor already knew about my cat, of course.)  Unfortunately, I don't have a digital picture of Titian or I would post her cuteness.

@k617 I was at work today, so I thought you'd enjoy some photos of our pearl walls. I forgot to photograph the high-end section! We have trays with Tahitians and Akoyas. *Drool*

@veronika23 I'm in love with this "Rose Column" of glass by Dale Chihuly at Phipps Conservatory.  It's just as beautiful in person.  Reminds me of crystal, diamonds in the rough...

Ohh nice @Mcakes Smiley Happy

Re: RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@Mcakes - Beautiful!  Thanks for sharing!  I probably haven't been to a show in 30 something years.

Re: RE: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@Mcakes Love them!  Thanks for sharing!  I haven't been to a gem and mineral show in about 20 years!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@greeneyedgirl107 - I've been a fan of Fabrege eggs forever!  A local artist well known for her Ukrainian eggs said unequivocally that "the egg came first!"

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@greeneyedgirl107 - lol!  Thanks for the picture!  Titian is the name of one of my past cats.  She passed away in 2005, but I missed typed and put "06."  I named her after the Renaissance period artist who was well known for using a particular color that became known as Titian.  I believe it's now called Burnt Sienna.

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@Titian06 That's a great quote - love it!  And here's a pic of the girl with the Titian hair, Rita Hayworth!  I DVR'd Gilda but haven't gotten around to watching it yet!

I'm sure you've heard that she said men went to bed with Gilda, but woke up with Rita Hayworth!
