Happy Holidays !
 
 
HO! HO! HO!  What a year it has been!

December is a month we usually think of family and friends, spending time together, sharing good food, enjoying drinks and rolling in laughter. This December is going to be very different.  Although we will have to keep our social distance and celebrate in isolation, we can nonetheless maintain the tradition of exchanging gifts to just express our love or use them to send a simple message of "I'm thinking of you". 


Missing the time I used to spend with my girls, sister, mother and mother-in-law.  Now, I can only can talk to them by text or Facetime. I just want to reach out to hug, kiss and share all the yummy food together soon.

Sharing is Caring ... Sharing the Gift of Love !

Gift givers love to spend their money on others, it brings them as much joy as the receiver.  Just like everyone else, I'm spending a lot of time surfing and shopping online. This is something new to me, as I traditionally do most of my holiday shopping by visiting handmade Christmas markets.  So, while I do miss in-person shopping, I am now learning to take small steps and adapting to the whole experience of online shopping.

DECEMBER BLUE
Birthstones

Although this time of year is strongly associated with holiday hues of red and green, there are many different colors to choose from when it comes to selecting birthstone jewelry for the December birthday in your life! From the light, bright blues of turquoise, the rich hues of blue topaz, and the intense color of tanzanite , you're sure to find the perfect gift.

The Sparkling Blue Topaz
Blue Topaz symbolizes honesty, clarity of feelings, and deep emotional attachment. Often associated with loyalty and love, this gem represents eternal romance and friendship. 

The name itself likely comes from an island in the Red Sea, which the Greeks called Topazos (it's now named Zabargad). The stone we now recognize as being "topaz" was never found on Topazos, but other gems called "topaz" by ancient peoples without good knowledge of mineralogy certainly were.



Did you know?
Over the centuries turquoise has been thought to protect people from misfortune!

Turquoise is the unique and stunning stone that offers variety and intriguing earthy blue tones, opaque luster, and rich history and its rich blue color comes from the copper content inherent in its mineral composition.  Turquoise often contains embedded pyrite, also known as fool's gold, as well as black oxide veining that gives the stone its wonderful texture.  Highly valued for its striking namesake color, turquoise is an ideal choice for gifts for those born in December.


The Magic of Tanzanite
Tanzanite is an exotic, vivid blue stone kissed by purple hues. Rarely pure blue, tanzanite almost always display its signature overtones of purple. In smaller sizes, tanzanite tends toward the pastel tones and the lavender color is more common. In larger sizes, tanzanite typically displays deeper, richer colors.  Discovered in Tanzania in 1967, it is today considered one of the world's most popular gems.

Tanzanite History
Legend has it that tanzanite was first discovered when some brown gemstone crystals lying on the dry earth were caught in a fire set by lightning that swept through the grass-covered hills in Africa. The Masai herders driving cattle in the area noticed the beautiful blue color and picked up the crystals, becoming the first tanzanite collectors.
 
Tanzanite Powers
Tanzanite changes color when it is viewed from different directions. This shifting of colors has been said to bring one's consciousness to a higher state.
  • Relieves stress and depression, and enhances composure, poise, and harmony
  • Beneficial for overcoming communication difficulties
Famous Tanzanites:
 
"Namunyak" Tanzanite Necklace

From Chi's Bench  ...  Re-purposed Delights

Let me help you tell your stories!

I delight in giving new life to tired jewelry with my "re-purposed" designs.

Many customers are cleaning out their jewelry boxes and would like to breathe new life and purpose to their precious stones and pearls to celebrate life's milestones and create new family heirlooms!


Lorna was given a blue topaz bracelet that she never wore ... repurposed them into 4 pairs of legacy earrings to share with Mom, and her girls!  So beautiful and sweet!


Love, Love, Love how the classic alexandrite band was transform into a contemporary bold ring in my distinctive woven look!
