I love this one.
Labradorite is one of my favorite #gem stones, but so few people seem to know about it. It is a gray stone (I know, that sounds boring). BUT, layers within the stone refract light resulting in the most amazing iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green and copper red. My photography simply cannot capture the #beauty of this #unique #gemstone. #labradorite#handcraftedjewelry#handcraftednecklace#labradoritebead#faceted#etsy#etsyshop#sociljewels#creatorslane#beautiful$colors#uniquedesign#gemstone jewelry#fipdesigns#silver#beadjewelrymaker #gem #designerlabradoriteneclace

Wow! Just Wow!
I seem to be a bit blocked on ideas today- so with more plastic storage bottles arriving, I've pretty much got all my gem stones and beads organized so I can easily see most of them.Now out to enjoy the #sunshine. #gemstones#beads#colorful#handmade#fipdesigns#etsy#etsystore#africanbeads#tribal#tribalbeads#semipreciousgems#gems#relaxing #gem #colors #bead #semipreciousstones

This was from an ancient pueblo in Mesa Verde.
A #road trip, traveling back in time.
 I love the #mystery of this window into the #past. Anasazi (Pueblo) Indian dwellings at Mesa Verde, Colorado. (AD 500-100 approximately). #travel#travelphoto#spring#beautiful#traveling#tourism#travelpics#destination#history#wanderlust#instapic#fipdesigns#history#historynerd#indian # Colorado #photo

Makes sense to me!
Woohoo- 2 earring orders went out today, just coincidentally both to Israel. I love selling overseas, but darn those shipping rates are pretty outrageous. The only way to cut them though is for international customers to buy 2 or 3 items- and cut the per unit cost of shipping.Now that would work......:>)
