Color of the Week - Tanzanite

Tanzanite is actually a semi-precious stone found in the African country of Tanzania.  It's often lilac colored although as a stone, it can also be anywhere in a range of sapphire blue through violet through burgundy.  Inspired by this beautiful stone, Swarovski created the Tanzanite crystal ... and I've chosen Tanzanite as my color of the week.

I'm also featuring my design "Cheryl's Smile" -- named for my friend Cheryl who always makes me smile!  It has great "swing" and is one of my personal favorite styles (I have several colors!).

Please drop in for a visit at my Etsy shop -- click on the section called "My Favorite Girls" -- any jewelry found in that section can be specially made in Tanzanite.  From June 23-28 (2010), you may purchase designs in Tanzanite at 20% off*!  Please convo me with your requests and I'll prepare a special listing for you.
