March Pretty Rocks Club - All About Beryls
Subscriptions have gone out, so now there are a very limited quantity available for individual purchase! The theme for March is “all about beryls” or as I kept calling it for a while, “aquamarine and friends” and both are accurate - this one involves lot of different but closely related pretty rocks!
Regular gets you one shiny thing in a form of your choosing (pendant, earrings, bracelet); deluxe gets you that plus a bonus variation of aquamarine that is REALLY gorgeous and best suited for pendants although I wouldn’t rule out a bracelet if you aren’t too hard on your jewelry and I have a couple of earring pairs available. I did two separate pieces for all the deluxe subscribers because I think that showcased the stones the best, but if you’d prefer one big piece I can definitely make that happen.
Regular - $ 30.00
Deluxe - $ 50.00

My silver wire is .999 fine silver over a copper core, encased in a durable clear enamel coating. (My gold, bronze, rosegold, and copper wires also have the clear enamel coating, unless otherwise specified.) I have been using this wire since I began making jewelry in 2003, because it is extremely non-reactive - people with metal allergies can wear it! - and it does not tarnish. It is also easier for me to manipulate than solid sterling wire, which allows me to hand-sculpt it into the intricate fwooshiness of my trademark style despite the extensive hypermobility caused by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
In the interest of being environmentally friendly, I keep my packaging as minimal as possible while still protecting the contents. Most orders are shipped in small kraft boxes inside bubble mailers, with items packed together whenever possible rather than using a single box for each piece of jewelry in an order. (
!) Larger items are usually shipped wrapped in tissue paper in a Priority Mail box. Gift bags are available
I am transitioning away from using packing slips or other paper inserts; while many small businesses like mine routinely include handwritten thank you notes in every order, I feel it is more environmentally responsible to express my appreciation for your patronage via email rather than contributing to the contents of your recycling bin!
