I travel to Brazil but I shall make a stop in Zambia.
The journey to find the finest of the finest the intensely intense of the colour intensity will I find in Colombia.
Perchance Australia, India or Pakistan may hold the one stone to quench my passion for the bewitching gem.
Russia beckons.
South Africa rivals the closer to home United States for a place on the jeweller's bench as she conjures the dream and designs for the stone ... I am wearable art ...

February

February made special with Amethyst.

February

Of all Twelve of the Siblings, February is unique: The smallest in the litter, February is oft overlooked...

yet, there is much to February: The change in daylight, the delightful speed it bridges to March, the third month of the meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere, the twenty-eight days in common years, the twenty-nine days in leap years, the quadrennial twenty-ninth day always called the "leap day" … February set apart.

Suddenly important.

February made special.

Oh, yes, in red hued gratitude: we welcome February.

It gifts us, notably, with a Love Memorial and a Celebration of Family

January

January made special with Garnet.

January

It is the first month of the new year. It is two thousand seventeen.
It is January. It is the first day.

Pristine
Brand new.

Unmarred by disappointments, sacrifices, complaints, demands, desires...

The resolve is strong, fervent even, to keep the new in the fresh start.

Oh, January, there is time enough for the happy to be shifted, shaken and dulled.

Time enough for that in the coming days

But for now, one minute into 2017: 

Let the happy be: strong, shiny, bright, bubbly. Let the happy keep its kindness, its goodness, its niceness...

Welcome, January. Welcome.
