January 2017 Anew

Celebration brings happiness, glee and joy. Welcoming the New Year, 2017, with open hearts reflecting its very feeling. The prospect of fresh ideas and possibilities which lie ahead provide positive attitude and hope. The new moon brings about new beginnings. We open our souls to what can be. We open our minds to alternative thoughts which we may not ever consider. Living in possibility means that we can approach life from a different perspective than what we may be in the habit of, or accustomed to. The Moon has several phases. Some people are sensitive to the point of actually feeling them. We are in the First Quarter at this time. Or at least we were, when I began this post. This month is flying by – despite the frigid weather we are experiencing.  I have fallen in love with this notion, surprisingly, as I’ve grown older.

The blanket of snow that fell the other night was like an angel appearing from the skies above. The peace and quiet that resulted in the weather was such a gift. Listening to the quiet drop like a feather blanket in the dark on Saturday night brought delight to my soul. The message was loud and clear, if given the chance to really quiet the mind and absorb the messages from above. Such peace and possibility. I now realize why I love the four seasons; winter brings a strong message to me.  At mid-month, the Full Wolf Moon appeared on January 12, at 6:38 am EST. All Full Moons culminate all things new, as we build our dreams and goals for the year 2017. Mesmerizing. Especially to wake up to the moon, as the sun creeps rising from the opposite side of earth.

I saw this poignant message today. It resonated. January is a wonderful month to begin this little exercize. Don’t be scared. It will help you learn more about yourself, calm your inner soul as well as stimulate the untapped within. 

For me, 2017 means discovering the pleasures and nuances of spending time alone.

Living with Red in January

Let’s talk about January’s birthstone. Garnet. Derived from their Latin name granatum… meaning “seed of the pomegranite”, garnet obviously references the color of this fruit. Garnet inspires love and devotion. It balances the sex drive and alleviates emotional disharmony. Deep red garnet stimulates the controlled rise of kundalini energy and aids sexual potency. Garnet clears negative Chakra energy and is very useful to wear in times of crises. It activates and strengthens the survival instinct, bringing courage and hope to bleak situations. My pic stitch above reflects four different pieces of healing gemstones from Nymph. http://www.nymphjewels.com/shop and here is the link to the entire collection I’ve uploaded thus far. The deep rich tones of these garnet stones are captivating.  Below are “lentil” garnets, slightly faceted combined with the rarely seen Tanzanite ( periwinkle) and a huge Herkimer Diamond.  Another gem using garnet.

I’ve paired translucent rutilated quartz with garnets because of the contrast between the two stones. It allows your mind to rest from the juxtapositioning of the deep hues and light. It also represents clarity which I wrote about at length last January. (http://davamuramatsu.com/clarify-your-mind-body-soul/)

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. It is emotionally a very intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate and raises blood pressure. Enthusiasm enhancement. Red is the color for the base or root chakra. This chakra is located at the base of the spine and allows us to be grounded and connect to the universal energies. Groundedness, trust, and belonging lessen feelings of mistrust. Gemstones that will aid the Root chakra include lodestone, ruby, garnet, smokey quartz, obsidian, hematite and onyx.  Red is described as warm, vibrant and intense. It is an exciting and daring color, but also evokes the feelings of love and comfort. Grab your attention red – the reason it is used in traffic signage and for fire trucks.

Drinking this color with your eyes, is very stimulating. Drinking red wines are a healthy way to get the antioxidants in the body. Eating red foods, same thing. Regardless of the intake, it embues the sense of heightened awareness and of importance.  Digesting red foods – the new powerhouse of nutrition. Strawberries, beets, rasperries, the list is emense. Eating by color. Red foods are packed with a variety of pwoerful antioxidants. They have been shown to help fight cancer and heart disease. Peppers, cranberries, pomegranante, cherries, and red skinned potatoes are some of the red foods to try. Let’s not forget tomatoes. I made a salad just the other day using both strawberries and tomatoes. At first I thought it was odd to mix strawberries and the tomatoes, but with the baby romaine, and the tuna salad with ample celery, and my home made dressing, it was deliciously balanced.

January is the month to begin your new regime. What do YOU want for yourself in 2017?  It all begins with YOU. We have heard this so many times. It’s time to SHOW UP fully. How would you like the world around you to perceive you? Your image is frontal. It’s what people see upon their first glance. I don’t care if it’s a lazy Saturday morning, and you need to run out of the house for milk. SHOW UP. Take an extra measure for your hair, makeup – even just a touch. You never know who you will meet! I often tell clients that change can happen as often from the outside in, as from the inside out. Don’t deprive yourself of the elements you need to create an impression, which gives you a presence – especially for yourself!

So don’t wait to buy the scarf you love or the earrings or the purse if that color is speaking to you. Your soul is begging you to have it. If you deprive yourself of that notion, scarcity sets in and you will spiral downward into a place where you stop caring. If you don’t care, no one else will care. You’ll be sending a negative message to all those you meet, and yourself, about your lack of self-worth.

 

2017: Live Fully. Live with Intention. Live Joyfully. When your heart soars as a result, your contagious energy will spread all over. Watch for the perpetual energy you’ve created!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this journey. Please share yours with me! I’d love to hear from you.

Always in joy and style,

A Trio of Inspiring Journeys

What winter? This season has definitely made it easy for us to move around  in an uninhibited fashion. This rare weather has cooperated with us resulting in less fear around falling icicles or black ice, just to name a few. As a result of this mild winter I’ve been fortunate to experience the ease in traveling. No storms brewing to delay flights etc. The first journey, begins with the New York Gift Show Accent on Design, held in early February. People shop and scout replenishing their empty stores as a result of the Holiday mayhem. They are creating while re inventing their look for the season upcoming. The same holds true for those with e-commerce sites. It’s always a thrill to help these buyers and possibly inspire them to purchase items they may not have known existed before! This is a very creative period for us.

For this season,  we went with a malachite effect on the walls.  The deep green hues were applied in a way that gave the walls an authentic gemstone like effect.  This could  very well become our new signature color. We basically created a 4 day Pop Up shop. Then the tear down. The complete process is a lot of work, but very fun, stimulating  and inspiring – especially seeing  the buyer’s positive feedback. Our wares include hand-made brass table top utensils, seen below, several candle collections, skillfully crafted make up brushes, porcelain cell plates as seen on the top shelf in the rear of the booth, to name a few. I begin to wind down, and travel back to the Boston area once the show is over. Then the processing order time frame begins.
IMG_3587Three days later, I wind up in a place I have promised myself for years to attend. This year I did.

I found myself in 87 degree dry heat amidst the mystical gems of the Tucson Gem Show. The vibration and frequency from this show continues to resonate within me.  I think the crystals were performing their magic! I know I felt it! How could one not?

The single terminated crystal quartz  display below is one of millions shown. These are the most common type of crystal, with a single six-sided point at one end. They are used to charge the chakras or to disperse negative energy. Crystals remain extremely popular for their beauty and therapeutic healing properties. Clear quartz crystals hold the vibration of White Light. As we open our higher chakras we become receptive to that Light and to the crystals that embody it.

IMG_1130On my journey, the next discovery was such an unexpected find. As many of you may know, I have been incorporating Herkimer Diamonds into my collection of Nymph. They are diamond like, due to their natural facets and their clarity. How do they grow? I wondered. What does it look like?

IMG_1077Here, above you can see a large chunk of Earth. The Herkimers have lodged themselves into the crevices of this mass. They are discreetly suspended within the crevice. I have an example of this at MATSU so you can actually see it with your own eyes. Herkimer Diamonds are raw quartz crystals mined in Herkimer, New York. Believed to be nearly 500 million years old, each stone naturally formed with eighteen facets, six sides and two points. The diverse crystal appears with a number of mystical inclusions, adding to their value and character. These stones are ascension stones. They can take you to the highest spiritual vibration possible while still being in your physical body. This stone energizes, enlivens and promotes creativity. Below I show a finished piece of jewelry as an example. From Earth to  body adornment. These beauties swing from 18k gold ear wires. They catch the light with every movement. These are available with many more styles on their way. If interested please contact me!

IMG_8550

The grand finale for me was my acquaintance with this enormous gemstone. Cool to the touch, feeling a sense of security and magic all at the same time, as I hugged this beautiful rock.

IMG_1187Time to go. Heading North by car, it was impossible not to gain sight of the terrain. So different from the East Coast. Dryness, cacti and arid vegetation all over and forever it appeared.  I had the sense that John Wayne or Clint Eastwood were about to gallop out in front of my car on a horse being chased.  To my disappointment, this did not occur. Instead I feasted my eyes on all of the  new scenery and simply enveloped the vegetation. I knew Sedona was near, but it wasn’t until the car seriously approached these majestic mountains that I was completely awestruck. Looking like an oil painting, I had to pinch myself into reality. And, yes it was indeed real. This trip was so inspiring on many fronts. So much beauty, right here in the USA. Before I take you back to

IMG_1332           East Coast reality, please allow me to share this unique dining experience in Sedona. Driving by, my eye caught this amazing rustic structure. It sits high up on a mountain and if that isn’t enough.. the spectacular views from the veranda and dining room makes a creative canvass for the unusual them and menu. MARIPOSA;  A Latin inspired grill captivating nature surrounding the grounds as it also entices the stomach. It was truly a delicious experience. I strongly suggest you visit this or any of Lisa Dahl’s other dining establishments when in Sedona. You may click on the link http://mariposasedona.com for additional information. The food, views, service and hospitality was spectacular. I grew very fond of JB Mariposa’s Maître d’ rather quickly. His gracious demeanor and charm was just enough to inspire me to share this with you. Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 7.58.24 AM

And the view from the veranda.. Simply breathtaking!

Next up: Fashion Coterie. Market for Autumn/Winter 2017. Back to East Coast fun.

IMG_1533

With arrivals beginning in late July, I chose the hues, shapes, textures and styles for the next season. Ordering 6 months out. I was so excited about the tones I saw. It’s been a while that deep midnight blue has appeared  in fashion. I was delighted to see it in the collections done  by most of the designers I was attracted to. You can expect seeing that tone again at MATSU, in combination with Ochre, Deep Green, Bordeaux, some bright shots of deep Pinks, and finally harmonizing all the tones a deep Charcoal Grey appears. Harmony! Look at the bevy of color below. These scarves are all designed in Paris, made in India. They each tell their own story.ImageOn the Nymph front, I would love to share one of my newest pieces. It’s a locket filled with diamonds! I’ve paired it on a simple sterling silver oxidized chain. The choices are 18 or 32″. A small garnet briolette is the “garnish” accent for this piece. It’s brand new, as I’ve just turned out another collection. Most of it is complete, just waiting for the weather to break so I can shoot outdoors. Do you like it ? It’s royal, rich and brings creativity and enhancing the new directions your goals are to take you.

IMG_8670What would my blog posts be if I didn’t add some nutrition? I made this last night. Salmon in Parchment. The flavors simply melded inside the parchment. Cooked at 375 for about 45 minutes. The original recipe from Martha called for leeks. I thinly sliced leeks, tiny red tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, added fresh tarragon, black Moroccan olives, salt, pepper , olive oil, drizzled white wine, sealed the paper with – staples, and voila! Delicious. All the flavors permeated together and the end result was simply amazing! Served with sautéed okra with garlic and shallots accompanied by wild rice. Yum!

IMG_1609 I started out with a shorter concept, but it kept growing. How can I leave anything out ? I can’t! My goal was to share my experiences with you, and I hope you enjoyed them. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Can’t wait to see you again in my shop once my abbreviated hours are revised. Until then feel free always to give me a call. I am happy to meet you at 92 Boston Post Road, in Sudbury. Here is my number. 617.510.6369

Clarify Your Mind, Body & Soul

As we all know, January marks the first month in the  year.  How many of you have created intentions to manifest what you have put off or procrastinated this past year? This is the perfect month for new beginnings, excercise, reading that book you have been dying to read, going to a class or workship of some sort that was  challenging in the past or learning to cook something above and beyond your normal scope of recipes. These are inspiring ideas to do. They will help you grow into an even better you! What a great opportunity, this time of year also, to clean out your closet. Edit your wardrobe. Purge. Change your hairstyle, alter your make up techniques! I can help you.  I don’t hold a crystal ball,  although I own plenty, but when you look into crystal quartz, it’s as though your can imagine your new life right in front of your eyes! I have the resources, experience  and all that it takes to help you make this shift. You owe it to your soul, and your heart. Not to mention how this liberating experience will trickle into your life delivering smiles to yourown heart, family and friends once they  both of you experience this liberating shift. A little meditation goes a very long way, so if you’re not certain which aspect of life you wish to shift. Sit quietly. Close your eyes.  Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 10.27.18 AM

As we celebrate this new year, many toasts have been made with more to go. Most importantly, please remember to acknowledge yourself. I think it’s easier for most people to self judge and criticize. Sadly. The results are never positive. Please raise a glass to yourselves! You deserve it. January avails itself for clearing of all sorts. What better time to begin? Now! Let’s make a toast before going on! Im using this stunning stemware collection as a celebratory image of the new year. The CAVA stemware collection is mouth blown,  available in a variety of shapes. We import them exclusively from Japan. They are mouth blown, and available through MATSU. Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 4.51.05 PMcava_imgcava_imgcava_img

Lifting blockages that prevent you from moving ahead, takes a conscious effort. Once you make up your mind, I can help along all of the rest. Promise!  All you need to do is call me, and I’ll be there to assist you in this wonderful transition. I am committed to helping you be the best YOU. The crystals below simply reflect all aspects of the world around you. Staring into them will inspire many things. They may transcend you to another country, into a dream, or even a peaceful state leading up to a refreshing meditation session.

Screen Shot 2016-01-04 at 2.31.18 PMAs I embark upon my life’s journey, I can’t help but notice  the nuances which have brought me to this point. I recognize that what once worked in the past no longer suits today’s desires. The retail climate as I knew it no longer exists, consequently, I strive to deepen my spiritual practice. Yoga, Soul Cycle, designing and working with gemstones certainly are up on top of my list for 2016. The word healing also comes to mind, as I start to submerge myself in different aspects of this, my soul grows richer.  I am studying now for my upcoming exam on the PRIMUS ACTIVATION HEALING TECHNIQUE. Once I complete the exam, I will then be certified to practice this wonderful mind, heart and life altering experience. It has shifted my way of thinking, responding rather than reacting, and a subtle sense of inner peace now softly hums inside my soul.  The Primus Activation Healing modality is a way to return to this natural state of wellness at the same time that it activates our physical and spiritual bodies for the next phase of human evolution that we now are entering. This is based on a series of meditative and hands on techniques that cause the electromagnetic field of the body (the aura) to resonate with specific energy frequencies that create measurable physical effects and powerful spiritual awakening. Resonance with these frequencies used to be a natural state for human beings, but recent shifts in energetics and lifestyle have caused a crisis of misalignment with these energies. Sounds very scientific… that’s what I thought in my class, but having practiced and been practiced on, last weekend, I was hooked. As I mentioned before, my state seems to seriously have shifted as a result of entering into this newly learned paradigm. My goal is to begin practice once I become certified. The next step will be using crystals and gemstones to accompany this modality. This particular healing modality is created by Naisha Ahsian. A photo of her meditation CD is below. Quite powerful, to say the least.Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 10.31.15 AM

The photo below was taken in Sea Girt, New Jersey last weekend during my Primus healing workshop. The monochromatic tones of this beach scene are so close in contrast, and soothing to the eye. Nothing like visiting the beach in the heart of winter. An unexpectedly mild day for January was the experience at 63 degrees; simply beautiful and peaceful. The sky has stories to tell, and triggers my imagination.IMG_0803The month of January historically is the coldest  month of the year. Snow falls heavily as a rule, and frankly I look forward to that feeling of hibernation, being house bound, lighting candles and that wonderful sound of nothingness as the snow hits the ground. Especially if it falls overnight into dawn. There is nothing more comforting than the lack of noise, as the snow gracefully hits Earth. I love not worrying about the ice,  so far this year we have been lucky in this respect. January is also the month of Garnet, as I widely wrote about in my January 2015 post. I decided to take a different approach this year. January is the time, as I mentioned in the beginning of this post to set intentions and goals for the new year. New beginnings. Several gemstones represent this notion. These live creatures from earth also have background information they bring to earth. Why not begin with new intentions on any day? Not necessary to wait for the new year, after all.  Clear crystal quartz is one stone that reflects and shines. These supreme gifts from Mother Earth will help facilitate dreams, trigger forgotten memories into regained knowledge, promote wisdom and higher realms of perception, aid the higher chakras in emanating white light and revitalize the mind/body/spirit connection.  These crystals are known to strengthen and enhance the aura, stimulate the immune system and balance the physical body into a greater state of health. Clear crystals are so easy to wear. They work with everything, from day to-night. See my collection below.IMG_1029Top left: 30″ necklace with Herkimer Diamond, Top right: Herkimer Diamond earrings with 18k gold ear wires, Bottom left: a cluster of Herkimer diamonds prior to design, Bottom right is a lariat with 3 huge Herkimers and a garnet.  Happy New Year! All for sale on my ETSY site.

I leave you now with some insight, new information and hopefully you read this and become inspired to shake something up for yourself! If it’s not your closet, then I am sure there is some little nugget you can take away here in this blog post. Otherwise, I look forward to helping you with your image, your health and or style!

Yours in joy and style,

The Cornucopia of Life

Late Autumn is here; nearly over. The golden, brick and brown hues of the leaves fallen to the ground and crisp sounds of the dried leaves underfoot, triggers childhood memories. The distinct scent of autumn satiate my senses as I stroll outdoors soaking up the invigorating air, enjoying my environment. Screen Shot 2015-11-15 at 9.30.31 PM

The focus this month are appreciation and gratitude as we prepare for our Thanksgiving Holiday.           The word, humble stirs within. This is one of the most reflective holidays, planning our time with family and friends. Gathering, cooking, eating and playing, the day is filled with bounty. This is the true Cornucopia of life. This beautiful word is derived from Greek Mythology. It is the goat that suckled Zeus, and broke off becoming filled with fruit. Eventually, folklore wise, this horn would be filled with what ever the owner wished. The other term it came into being known as is a Horn of Plenty.Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 1.19.55 PM

I rarely have the pleasure of actually seeing a Cornucopia any more. The art of this centerpiece can easily be created, with little imagination, time and treats of the season. A bevy of seasonal food pouring out from the horn. A feast for the eyes, heart and stomach.

The two foods I find essential for creating a unique meal, with depth and meaning are figs and olives. The two were discovered in ancient times, with much presence and symbolism. Olives
Image-2  are regarded as a symbol of peace and wisdom. The olive is associated in spiritual workings with bringing happiness, purity and harmony. Olive trees provide food, nutrition, timber and  medicine since ancient times. Moses referred to it as “the tree of life”. Italians have been known to hang an olive branch over the doors of their homes to ward off evil spirits.

Olives are rich in Omega 9 monounsaturated fats, minerals, such as potassium, calcium, zinc and phosphorous. They are also rich in vitamins E,D & K.  I’ve been enjoying cooking with them in combination with both African spices as well as Italian herbs. Chicken dishes are the best with them as an added pop of surprise. By adding them to dishes, they create another dimension to the food, and my absolute favorite this time of year is bringing fresh figs into the mix.  Figs. Aren’t they beautiful? Design by nature.

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 4.42.17 PM

Figs are a symbol of peace, plenty, and prosperity. They are an ancient fruit, cultivated for centuries and celebrated for their intense nourishment. Full of fiber, copper, vitamin B6 and potassium, they are  regarded as a sacred symbol. Allow me to dissect. The seeds are delicate, edible and abundant. Fig seeds signify universal understanding, unity and truth. Just think about those tiny little jewel toned specks unified in their purpose of creating more life. The tear drop shape body of the fruit itself, fills the hand with softness and subtle sensuality. The photos below reflect before and after. They are in their natural state, then I’ve sliced them drizzling olive oil and cracked pepper. They now can roast for about 20 minutes at 350. Wonderful accompaniment to salads, the deep pot chicken I referenced above along with the olives. Just luscious!Image-3The season brings us joy, and appreciation. It is the beginning of gift giving season. I am so happy to present some new products in MATSU now. More to enjoy, and enhance your meals. A great alternative to gift giving. Aged for 10 years, Balsamic Vinegar imported from Italy. $36. I suggest putting it to the creative test by chopping shallots and placing them in olive oil, heating until they pop. Add several tablespoons of Balsamic to it, with some herbs and whip as the heated olive oil mixture combines with the vinegar. Makes a great marinade and vinaigrette.
Limited Selection of delectable Olive Oil:Limited Selection Olive Oil imported from Italy $46.Use for dipping as is, or to enhance any meal.
Butcher Salt, with herbs laced through the heft grains of French Salt.Flavor packed Butcher Salt $24.Use on meats, fish, vegetables. Roasted or saute’. This salt is packaged in an industrial wood and metal 4″box. Included with the sea salt are rosemary, thyme, sage and marjoram.  These items are true enhancements to any meal, as well, as for your health.

Apropos to Thanksgiving week, and prelude to the Holiday Season, allow me to introduce a few pieces from the Cornucopia Nymph Collection! Here I’ve used pearls with delicate brass strands, citrine chunks and Tahitian pearls, knotted Tahitian pearls, green garnet, Tahitian pearls and garnet accents, lastly a Medieval Diamond Sphere on 30″ chain, again garnet accent. All rich with healing properties, and characteristics determined to adorn not only your body, but your soul and spirit.Image-7

In addition to the jewelry above, I have embarked upon a new form of designing, using natural gemstones right from Earth. These are naturally terminated – meaning uncut, not dyed, appearing in their natural state. Organic beauty. These are pendants, worn on a short or long chain. The yellow stone up front is Apatite, the fireball sphere is Hessionite Garnet, the Peacock colored stone is fluorite, and the other two which look like ruby, are in fact, raspberry Garnets.                      Cornucopia at its best!IMG_0376

News Break: TRUNK SHOW at Exhale Spa, 28 Arlington St. Boston will be held Friday, December 4, Saturday, December 5 and Sunday, December 6!.  I am thrilled to revist. It was an unfortunate set of uncontrollable circumstances due to severe flooding this past weekend that they had to shut down the entire facility. Stay Tuned for emailed invitation. And so until then, I will hold a Trunk Show at MATSU. Can’t wait to see you in either or both locations.

Wishing you all a Cornucopia of happiness, joy, peace and appreciation for this holiday season and into the new year!

Yours in joy and style,

Dava

The Sparkle & Splendor of April

April flutters into the wings of change. With it, spring arrives, along with a bevy of other natural things we anxiously await. Such as flooding daylight, flowers, birds chirping, bees buzzing and bugs singing. Nature awakes, and so do our souls.  Did you know that the word April means to open or bud,in Latin? This month we all re awaken from our long deep sleep. Here comes my photo of the Pussy Willow. A sure sign of hope and optimism of all the nature to come.

IMG_7241_2April is tricky. It’s warm, then we feel like we have reverted back to hibernation as the rain sets in, but it is indeed a slow positive climb upward! Drops of rain bring a meditative state of mind, cleansing of the inner spirit, and overall relaxed feeling to embrace what is.

Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 9.19.06 PMThose born in April can celebrate not only their birthdays, but their birthstone! Everyone wants one. Everyone would love to receive one. What are they?  Diamonds. Their optical properties are simple. It’s all about the 4 Cs.. the carat, cut, color, and clarity. But I am not selling diamonds here, exactly. I am here to share the healing properties, and some of the pave ( paved) diamond jewels from Nymph.  I love this abstract photo directly below.

Screenshot 2015-04-14 18.51.59This April birthstone, the Diamond, is a symbol of purity. It bonds relationships bringing love and clarity into partnership. We can talk about the husband and wife bonding over this stone, and the longevity of relationship and it being the sign of commitment, that is, on the traditional level and it is so.  Diamond has been a symbol of wealth for thousands of years and is one of the stones creating manifestation, and attracting abundance. Traditionally, the photo below personifies this cut of the magical Diamond.

Screenshot 2015-04-14 18.58.03There is no doubt, that diamonds have been a wealth symbol for thousands of years. Like it or not. It is an amplifier of energy, and one of the very few stones that doesn’t need  recharging. It increases the energy of what ever it comes into contact with. Diamonds clear emotional and mental pain. It reduces fear, and brings about new beginnings. May I simply circle back to what APRIL is all about. New beginnings! Like it or not. Letting go of what’s not working in your life. Don’t fear. Letting go allows for the New to enter what ever that may be. It’s the unknown that freezes us most of the time, I kid you not.

IMG_2706

Starburst? Sunburst? Pave (paved) diamonds rule this triple strand Green Tourmaline adornment. The symbol recognizes its glory and shows it off here, in a splendid form.  It is rich, regal and stately. The Diamonds show off the wonderful celestial shape, as the earthy green tourmalines  imbue their hues and tones in the light.

Below are 12mm pave diamond discs, delightfully dangling from 18k gold ear wires. These splendid stones shine in the dark, dazzle the eye and will make all women happy to be alive, if given as a gift.

IMG_3976One more unique show and tell here with the following photograph. I LOVE these!  Just another variety of the coveted diamond.. Diamond Slices!

IMG_2926 Natural diamonds slices offer a very clear view of their inclusions, telling a “story” about each one. Associated with romance and love, these little stones reflect white light and are highly clearing. Dear April born people! You are so lucky to have diamonds as your birthstone! Nymph now resides full-time at MATSU. I invite you to come in and feed your eyes on the beauty that resonates here. Anytime, call me for an appointment if the hours don’t merge with yours.
