January Birthstone -- Garnet

In honor of all with January birthdays (me included!), I'll share with you some new earrings in my etsy shop featuring garnets.

This first pair has both traditionally colored garnets in a deep burgundy color. Above them are the less common Mandarin garnets which are decidedly burnt orange in color. At the very top, I added a raspberry pink tourmaline bead.

Next is a more conservative pair of earrings. The bottom rondelle is the same as the ones in the first pair of earrings, but I get a completely different look by pairing them with a different set of beads and findings. Above the rondelle is a Hill Tribe silver beadcap with a leaf motif and a smaller round garnet bead.

Happy birthday to all January babies!

I love mandarin garnets...I guess I am odd.
Maybe I should get tupperware for my beads. Bwahahahahaha!
