Blushing beautiful

After having my pieces chosen for several recent treasuries on Etsy, I needed to curate my own collection! Named Blushing Beautiful, all of the items are personal favourites:

Blue and orange

How fabulous! ARIA INDUSTRIES jewellery was selected for two Etsy treasuries on the same day! The Tarina earrings were chosen for a collection called Womens Fashion, while the Joelle earrings made it into one called Christmas Gifts. Isn't this exciting?

Winter collection

About a month ago, the Georgia bracelet was listed in a treasury called Winter Picture Ring Thoroughbred and I forgot to post about it because I was on my way out of the country for a weekend trip. This is one of my favourite bracelets because the large spinel nuggets are uncommon and I got them from a trip to Vancouver Island.

Orange is the new orange

There must be something in the air because another piece has been chosen for a treasury! The theme of this collection is apparent from its name, Wednesday Carnelian Bracelet, and the ARIA INDUSTRIES piece is the June. The orange stone is definitely a player, but the bright tropical blue apatites and large aqua chalcedonies are just as stunning:

Three rubies

The Etheline necklace is one of eight new items posted to aileen.etsy.com and I think it has an understated glamour. Front and center are three graduated teardrop rubies, while the details include tiny garnets and double rings. Isn't this design grand?

Hilde and Kimberly

Goodness, I had forgotten to report on the Dunbar Holiday Craft Fair at the end of November... It was my first time at this craft fair in the Dunbar neighbourhood and I had a fabulous time making new friends and meeting new customers. I even found myself a pair of fingerless gloves to take home at the end!

I had prepared a pair of black onyx earrings, named Hilde, for the craft fair's own draw, while I held one of my own as usual. The winner of the $25 gift card is Kimberly Baker!

Here is a snapshot of a small section of my table that day:

And here are the Hilde earrings:
