The incomparable Laura has offered up several items of her beautiful handmade jewelry for sale, with the proceeds to benefit my daughter’s medical bills. Details in the linked entry, but the short version is that Kira has cardiomyopathy and we need to raise money for her care on really short notice (we just found out on the 28th.) I’m selling other items, including dolls.

I’m sharing this here so that it can be signal-boosted — and even if you can’t help in any other way, a share/repost would be incredibly helpful right now.
Thanks so much, and much love to all of you

Yet another damaged item from deep in the safe, given new life this week.  Actually this is the result of two broken pieces, both dating to about 1890.  The ring mount was originally set with pyrite, but was badly damaged.  The purple stone is blue john— a very rare form of fluorite sourced from a single cave in England.  It was originally a heart shaped pendant, which I clumsily broke when packing up to ship out to a customer.  So this week the stone was recut, polished, and fitted into this mount.  A happy ending I guess. The ring is 10K gold, and is priced at $475.

Flourite, always reblog lol :-)
