Rain, rain, come my way

Hello there! It's been a while so it is time for a sale! (It's also because I'm going on vacation and won't be able to ship orders for a while, but who's quibbling?) From October 1 to 20, all items at aileen.etsy.com are discounted by 15% when the code 2015ROMANHOLIDAY is used at check out. Deal, right? All orders will ship by October 22, which means you can cross off your holiday shopping list early!

Like the Elodie necklace? This rain cloud necklace with the sterling silver pendant and pale smoky quartz raindrops can be yours. The stones are faceted with a point on one side and with a flat top like a regular pear-shaped gem on the other. You can wear it with the points facing in or out!

Adore these!

Six pairs of earrings and two necklaces have been added to the shop and I can't get over the colours in the Theadora earrings. The blues and greens are courtesy of aqua chalcedonies, fluorites, amazonites, prehnites, and green amethysts, while the lone metallic accent is from a sparkly pyrite. The large stones in these earrings will stun and impress!

Island shopping

Hello! I have been in Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia, the last three days and I have visited the same number of bead shops. I am excited to report that I will be bringing home lots of goodies including spessartites, rhodonite garnets, peach moonstones, lemon quartzes, and more! My favourite finds of the trip were some giant rubies and I cannot wait to make something with them. What kind of necklace will they be used for? Only time will tell...

Deliciously juicy Yumi

A large number of new items had been created, but many sold at the November craft fairs before they had been added to the shop! However, eight pieces have just been posted including the Yumi earrings, which were made at the Dunbar Holiday Craft Fair! The stones are coloured like candy and they look good enough to eat!

Elsie for Elsie Roy

Elsie Roy is an elementary school near my home and when I found out they were looking for sponsors for their holiday fundraiser, I was happy to donate! The Elsie earrings were made especially for their event and the stones are white sapphire, rose quartz, cherry quartz, and amber. Aren't they lovely?
