that's the sound we're hearing the most of around here - because this update is a doozy! Or, should I say, Druzy?
Because we have a spectacular update this week - with amazing, yummy, fabulous items, and we're going to start off this guided tour with Druzy cabochons. Or Drusy, if you prefer. Or even Drusie - because apparently not even I can spell it consistently!
We have a wonderful new selection of Stone Cabochons this week, including window druzies, that's the kind with the smooth stone with a "window" of crystals, or just all over crystals.
Next - we have some turquoise cabochons. Actual turquoise - not imitation. With lovely patterns of the matrix in them. These are not huge, but would really make a project!
And, some Opals! These ARE synthetic - they are man-made opals, but because of that, are much more affordable. And less finicky too - stronger and less susceptable to damage.
And then, there are the stone cabochons ... oh myyyyy. If you dream of interesting, beautiful stone cabochons, dream of these ... Red Creek Jasper, in interesting shapes, Shattuckite - originally from the Shattuck mine in Arizona, now mined out, but a small deposit has been found in Congo.
Perhaps you are a little baffled by cabochons - maybe you need an actual hole in your stones? Come on over to our Stone Donut and Pendants page! How about your Red Creek Jasper as an Inlay pendant? Beautiful pieces of Red Creek Jasper inlaid with a white stone border and set into a frame of amazonite or onyx, and with a large, horizontally drilled hole.
Or what about this Brown Leaf Jasper - sold in matched pairs, no less!
And, if you are looking for Inspiration on using the druzies - you can look at the very limited selection of pendants we got - mostly just for their inspirational qualities - although, if you must (wink, wink) have one - they are for sale!
And then there are the Donuts! Stone Donut pendants, Square Donuts, and Gogo Donuts!
Amazonite! The price of this was insane this year at Tucson, but we found a stash of it that we bought a while back, so the price is - well - it ain't cheap - but it's not as crazy.
Tree Agate - next to some of the flashy stuff we have this week, this might get lost, but, you know, graphic scribbles of sagey green on a white background is a pretty classy look!
Metallic plated pyrite. Faceted pyrite stones plated with a metallic coating. Or just gemstones. Green Quartz, Labradorite, Turquoise, or graduated colour strands like Smokey Quartz or Amethyst.
And some limited quantity strands of some fancy gemstones - in case you feel the need!
And still - there is more! Modern Dzi beads, new Tassels!
I am so excited about all the wonderful new stuff we have this week! Hope you can drop in and fondle it in person, or failing that - snag it online before it gets snapped up! Happy shopping - try not to drool on the keyboard, eh? ;-)
