Apr 14, 2016 Orange Avocado Jewelry Spring Show: A Refreshing Peace of Mind Orange Avocado Jewelry Spring Show Thursday, April 28th 2016 Derrick Golf & Winter Club 3500-119th Street Banff Room, 10 am to 7 pm Preparations for my Orange Avocado Jewelry begin months before the planned date. I always make sure that I have enough jewelry for everyone to choose from. To make it extra special I create a collection of limited edition pieces that are not available anywhere else but my show. This year I'm focusing this collection on semi-precious stones that I have collected one by one over the past year. Many of these stones are from my travels to Kailua, Hawaii where my sister lives. Little ceramic bowls filled with one of a kind cuts of semi-precious stones fill my hands. I look for clarity, interesting cuts and facets in the stone and beautiful colours that speak to me. I have to admit that I am always drawn to watery tones that reflect the colors of the ocean: peruvian opals, chalecedony in shades of soft greens and blues. Citrine, my birthstone, has caught my eye as well. I love how its meditative meaning is to remove stress and negativity from the body and replaces it with quiet and refreshing peace; so needed in our world today. Sharing my love of jewelry making one by one, from my hands to yours.
