October Heat Wave

October started off a little bit cooler but the extreme heat came back soon and continued burning up the place until now. Finally this morning, I can feel the nice breeze coming through the window. My place is in the shade during this season so maybe it's still really hot outside. I can't tell.

Can you see in the pictures? The top 3 images were taken in ok temperature, but the last one was under the mid 90°F heat a week ago when I regretted going out! Now once it starts cooling down, the gap between day and night will become larger then flu season arrives... we need to be careful.

I heard that in Japan they are experiencing the continuous rains unlike the regular October.
Hope it all clears up soon so that the fall foliage can be enjoyed before the winter's arrival.

Colorful Gemstone Jewels

I am building up some funky dainty fun colorful gemstone jewelry items in my shop!
I also wanted to share some jewelry books that I've been reading lately. 
I hope to talk more about it in my future post.

Stones shown here are carnelian, aventurine, moonstone, turquoise, coral, amazonite,
rhodolite garnet, peridot, amethyst, citrine, aquamarine, iolite, chrysoprase....did I cover all?
I like learning about each stone's history. More I read about it, more I realize that our ancestors enjoyed them fashionably but not without strong beliefs. Some gems were actually crushed into powder to be taken as medicines. Well, gems are in the end composed of minerals that I'm not surprised if they could make good supplements. Maybe I already mentioned this before but to me, gemstones are something mysterious beyond time and space. Knowing the stories behind these sparkling beauties makes them even more romantic and attractive. Stones like carnelian, turquoise, lapis lazuli have the longest history. 

To be continued..!

14kgf Colorful Mixed Gemstone Earrings & Bracelets

Don't overthink. Unleash your creativity.

It's been a while since I made this kind of gold gemstone jewelry.
Gold definitely has more feminine, softer side compared to silver.
I myself am a silver fan but that shouldn't limit what I make.
I had a moment of reflection after completing these, told myself to go back to where I simply enjoy creating without being so picky...!

Simple Drop Necklaces & Everyday Earrings

End of the Peaceful Weekend

Peaceful sunny afternoon.
This garden didn't seem to be ready for the new season yet.
Trees and flowers had the same appearance as the mid summer and the perfect weather allowed us to spend relaxing moments while listening to tropical sounding birds' chirping.

Later at night, a breaking news on the Las Vegas massacre came in and put an end to the calming weekend.
