I used to check out those department stores like Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom so often but I haven't done it a while....or even if I go, I rarely buy anything. It's always so exciting to see what's new out there but my crazy shopping phase has cooled down a bit. One reason is that I'm more towards one-of-a-kind these days. When I find something interesting, I try to see if I feel any special connection to it. Or I ask myself if it's really my style. Sometimes things that look pretty just don't look right when worn. (Maybe more pretty on someone else, etc.) Secondly, I used to be an impulsive shopper but I try not to be anymore because the items I buy impulsively usually don't look good next day..... Through my long shopping history, I've learned that there aren't so many things that I truly want in the end. Fulfillment that comes from impulsive shopping don't last long either. Meanwhile, it's different when I get something that I really wanted for long time. It seems to be such a simple common sense but I finally got it now..... Browsing online shopping sites has been a good training tool for me. It's good to grasp what's new online before I physically cruise around those shops to see the items in person.

Cherishing Peridot Green -Etsy Treasury

'Cherishing Peridot Green' by joonijewelry

Before August is over...

















image from

Peridot is an August birthstone. Its refreshing yellow green to olive green color does represent summer time. Some say peridot has a power to heal you physically and mentally and help improve any difficulty in relationships generating compassion between each other. Whether it's true or not, I do feel something spiritual in all those beautiful natural gemstones. I believe it has a power to energize and make viewers and wearers feel happy.

I have used this stone in so many different designs in different styles that I've created so far.

New Necklace -Moss Aquamarine

Moss Aquamarine Necklace

I finally got a chance to create a necklace with this beautiful precious stone moss aquamarine teardrop briolette. This deep teal ocean blue green stone is joined with sterling silver italian horn charm, aquamarine, green rutilated quartz, and rock crystal. Aquamarine is a March birthstone and is said to be a "stone of courage". 

ついにこのきれいな宝石、モスアクアマリンをネックレスにすることができました。 この深い海のような青緑色の石を引き立てるのはお守りのイタリアンホーンと、アクアマリン、グリーンのルチル入り水晶とクリア水晶です。 アクアマリンは3月の誕生石で、『勇気の石』と言われています。
