    Love these pairings! That daisy is stunning and the lavender lampwork amazes me. Thank you so much for featuring my Saskia owl from Hint. The most poetic part is my cat Saskia who inspired the spirit of this charm passed away in April 2009. The queen in her would have loved being paired with some diamonds! Many blessings for bringing a smile to my face.

    Serendipity! I just mailed off a Mother's Day gift (with fingers crossed that it arrives in time), a necklace with family birthstones for my mom. It was the first time I've done a birthstone piece, and it was fun to figure out how to combine them into a harmonious piece. Great info, and beautiful examples!

    Beautiful! Thanks for taking the time to create all these pairings.

    It's also possible to find crystals in just about any color, in case gemstones are too pricey for your project.

    I love that you paired up the gemstone colors with pendants!!! Thanks for including my pieces! Can I add too that I picked up some gemstones at Bead Fest Wire (nothing too extravagantly priced) and this will be a fantastic resource to refer back to for aiding with inspiration for design – THANKS!!!

    I am an October girl and I must say that you have refreshing designs in Opal.They are very different from the boring lot that is available in the stone.I also love ruby.
