I shoulda been a gemologist...

Now that my jewelrymaking endeavors are finally panning out, I figured I needed supplies. Ooh! An excuse to buy glittery jewels! And you know me - I don't do anything halfway - so I went for the real deal. Real gem-quality stones. I like my money where I can see it, ya know?

All goodies are from bestbeads, an etsy store that, for a person like me, is downright pornographic. Here's what I got:

Four of these mossy aquamarine pear briolettes:

A seven-inch strand of rhodolite garnet rondelles:

And the crowning jewels...15 of these multicolored sapphires.

I only hope that I can do these stones justice when I make them into jewelry.
