June - Summer Delights, Something for Dad and YOU


June - Summer Delights, Agate Earrings and Something for Dad and YOU!

The longer days and beautiful sunshine brings much delight into
our lives!  Trips, outings with friends and families are always exciting to ponder and realize.  

I love to travel and search out gemstones for my customers and
bring new items into my studio to work with.  One of my frequent places in the city of Toronto, is Cherry Beach.  An oasis in the heart of the city, where you can stroll along the shores of Lake Ontario where time stands still for a moment.  Leisurely pursuits, people strolling along the beach, with excited pet children eager run in the 'off leash section'.    Children making sandcastles, laughing playing, a picnic on the beach.

This is when I love to take my 'studio' outside and create.
With aromas of freshly cooked burgers and fries, cold or hot 
drinks for the Greek vendor makes this a special time of year 
for all.  Seagulls flying in formation looking for the odd french fry dropped by a child as it lands on the sand for their picking! 

It's also time to think of graduation and Father's Day around the corner.
I love the old time piece, those fob watches that grandfather used to wear are becoming
in vogue again to my delight.
Butter Fob Watch Side

Vintage Butterfly Brass Fob Watch
 These have quarts movements and a pleasant face with a lovely butterfly casing in the front.  Beautiful detailing on the back.

This is my favorite piece
which are suitable for unisex gifts.

Vintage Gold Leaf Fob Watch
The clock face is beautifully surrounded in gold leaf scroll work with a circular black back ground.

 The second circle is the actual clock face: with delicate dots marking the hours, with a sweeping second hand.

To change the time or active the quartz movement simply lift up the small screw mechanism at the bottom of the
V formation.  Vintage Fob Watch

We also have a more contemporary line too, which is in a sky blue face (my favorite with a matching suede cord).   The face is bright and welcoming, easy to read

and a quartz movement. Suspended on an ultra soft cord finished with 'Silver Silk' end caps for security  and long lasting wear. You may choose any colour cord I have in stock.  (click on purple text for the links)

Something for her!  Like the freshness of the summer foliage, whites dot the horizon on the beach with coolness!

Such was the inspiration for my new Agate White earrings
with sterling silver ear wires, as I imagined the waves rolling into the shore!  Fresh and clean, works brilliantly in any
summer outfit. 
White Agate Spiral Earrings
Each agate is unique in
shape and no two are the same.

Light to the feel and so smooth,
finished with lever back sterling
silver ear wires.

The stone was given its name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, who discovered the stone along the shore line of the river while searching for Algy Achates (Greek: Ἀχάτης) sometime between the 4th and 3rd centuries BC.  White Agate Spiral Earrings

Ammonite Fossil Earrings.

As a business person, I also like to promote other shops on Etsy.  Wendy of Arts and Adornments is a wonderful jeweler and designer that I admire.    This is my favorite pair of earrings from her shop. Link:  Ammonite Fossil Earrings
