Happy Thursday! (Does anybody say that? No? Well I’m starting it.)
I’m also starting a new series here on the blog where I share things that I love. Why? Because well, sometimes I stray from writing knitting patterns and find other cool things on the internet that I want to share! Currently, I’m obsessed with gemstones and textiles.
I used to make and sell jewelry on Etsy, and I’ve got a huge stash of un-used beautiful gemstones that haven’t been touched in years. We’re talking sapphires, pearls, emeralds, rubies, and just, oh my gosh I want to make jewelry! Lately I’ve been dreaming of learning how to weave so that I could incorporate my love of fiber, and my love of gemstones. But until I get around to it, here are some of the pieces I’ve been swooning over!
PS. We’re in Belize right now planning our wedding (oh- did I mention I got engaged?!) but when I get back, I WILL be buying a loom and sharing my experiences on Instagram, so follow along- it’ll probably be hilarious.
