It's my birthday! Diamonds & Garnets for me.

Who knows me better than me! So I bought myself a gift! I went on Etsy's Alchemy section rambling about what I wanted. But my request was all over the place. I'm not a jewelry designer so even though I knew what I wanted I couldn't express it in text. My description was vague like "Some nice jewelry pieces in white gold/silver. I love purple so maybe amethyst."

As I was browsing to get a better idea of what type of design I wanted, I stumbled on the lovely couple in Hawaii who made stunning unique jewelry pieces. Sea Babe Jewelry. They use 100% recycled gold and silver and natural gemstones including rough diamonds. I had to get myself a set! Not only is the jewelry beautiful but the service was stellar.

David, one half of the duo, called me all the way from his beautiful island and we discussed at length what I was looking for. Not only did he clarify some of the stones and textures I had questions about he also recognized I had a new shop on Esty and offered several very helpful tips to gain exposure on the very popular site. I love my purchase and even though I always hated my hands I can't stop looking at my stack rings and Rhodolite bangle. It even makes me want to get weekly manicures! Their line has something for everyone from a cute casual band for men or women to stunning wedding rings. You won't go wrong with these babes
