Provocateur: Pink

April 28, 2013 § 1 Comment

It ‘s the time of year where one gets inspired by color. I know the Pantone palette doesn’t include pink this Spring (you have to wait for the fall palette, although that pink, “Vivacious”  is really more of a fuchsia). I never have been on top of the trends, because, well, I’m usually ahead of my time!

The latest inspiration of trinkets started with a dress I bought:

In case you’re wondering, my new favorite go to shop for fabulous frocks is iheartfink. You can check out Kristen’s stuff here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/iheartfink

Then there was the sale of the pink “Princie” diamond (a 34.65 fancy pink diamond) for a cool 40 million clams. Sigh.

And then there was a story I read:

So romantic. I am in love with the portrait (from this story) of Mme. de Florian. Look what she’s wearing.

All of which inspired me to dig into my vault for pink rocks.

Almost all pink gemstones have a “love” theme to them, and since this is the season for it, underscored by all the baby ducks and geese I ride by in the lagoons at the park, I thought these would be appropriate to make and share.

First up: these rose cut pale pink sapphires, I paired them up with andalusite garnets (an absolutely fabulous rock, the color changes depending on which way the light hits).

Then, another pair, for the girly girl:

For the drama queen/Goddess woman, may I suggest:

For the glamour girl:

I made another fabulous icy pink kunzite raw crystal ring:

Finally, I picked up one of my rare rhodochrosite stalactite slices that I’ve been hoarding:
