Countdown to Valentine’s Day

art shows, red gemstones

It’s already February and we’re neck-deep in snow here in Quebec, but the days are getting longer, and it’s less than a week until Valentine’s Day! In anticipation, I’ve had romance and the color red on the brain. In my studio, it’s inspired certain Valentine’s-themed pieces, while others are built around luscious gemstones from my growing collection. I’m also offering free shipping for $100+ orders until the 14th. Just use coupon code “SHIP100” when checking out.

Here’s a small sampling of some recent (mostly red!) additions to my shop:

A few days ago, I thought something had gone wrong on the Etsy site because the number of “favorites” my shop and pieces in my shop were getting all of a sudden was going crazy. I finally figured out that a treasury one of my rings had been included in had made it to Etsy’s front page. Thousands of views and nearly 800 favorites later (my typical number of favorites in a day is more like 10-40), the ring in question had sold and the rest was history. Views and favorites continue to be high, which is great, and I wait in anticipation of my next front page! It was so exciting!!! Here’s the famous ring – an aqua blue, rose-cut square chalcedony from wonderful Fabbydabby Stones in Norway. It’s headed to L.A. Bon voyage!
