It's Thursday. On Thursdays I share short stories about my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. This week I'm sharing 3 pieces - all made with faceted red agate - faceted red agate. I loved the sophisticated feminine appeal of these pieces. They are all sterling silver, except for the pin. I do not focus much on these styles anymore - they can get pricey. Check them out below. What do you think?

.On Thursdays I share my old favorites - pieces of jewelry I've made when just starting out. What do you think? My all time favorite - Botswana agate sterling silver wrapped bracelet. When I first saw Botswana agate and touched it - I was on cloud nine - literally (yes, like the saying). On my first encounter I felt like I was in another zone, because of this deep connection Botswana agate naturally became my number one favorite agate gemstone, so I used it in many finished pieces. Do you have a favorite gemstone? Leave your answer in the comment section below.
Photographing natural gemstones is very challenging to say the least; they are like a mirrior and reflect light and everything else around, and the colors can become distorted. The Botswana agate was the hardest to photograph. I've learned that a natural backgound is perfect for gemstone jewelry. I love the way the product photos turned out.
Botswana agate is a stone of tranquility - serenity - surreal calmness. Enhance your casuals - https://hannahsgems.zibbet.com .

The year 2015 is coming to a close. I wanted to stop by and say THANK YOU!
Thank you for your, comments, likes, shares, and purchases. Also, I enjoyed being a customer to some of you. :)
This year has been a learning curve for Hannah’s Gemstone Jewelry, testing new marketing ideas and focusing on branding. I’ll admit that I spent too much time listening to marketing experts and trying to carry out their best tips and tricks. I spent way too much time on working on website templates and design and deciding on the best shopping cart platform.
Looking back, YOU, Customers and Followers, showed me that keeping it simple is the best way to go. As the saying goes, “if it aint broke, don’t’ fix it.”
Hannah’s Gemstone Jewelry, will continue to make jewelry gifts with care and quality while keeping it simple.
Here is hoping for more time with family and friends and easier and wiser decisions in 2016.
All the best,
It is just as I envisioned: Simplicity with versitility, style and elegance.
How to wear coral pink necklace and earrings
I want to bring you jewelry accessories that you can wear with any style or color combinations with a smile.
In both pictures, Sera, is wearing the same coral pink dolomite ( Mountain "Jade" ) necklace. She first wore it with black and white stripes and what appears to be a gold toned cardigan -- I love cardigans -- with matching earrings -- also from Hannah's Gemstone Jewelry (HannahsGems). Next she wore it with what looks like a striped coral and white cardigan with a blue top -- I love these color combos. I like to mix and match myself; Sera sure does it well.
Remember to join me on Instagram, I'm there everyday. I love to hear from clients and I would love to share your photos, tag me @hannahsgemstonejewelry on social media or send me an email.
All the best :)
True Beauty Is Not All About Looks
Love can be shown in many forms and said in different ways: compassion; tolerance; respect; or kindness.
True love does not know race, creed nor color.
Love is comprehensive and multi dimensional; it can be shown to a spouse, a kin, a fellow earth dweller (cause the earth is so big that none of us can claim it). It is not confined to religion or nationality.

What Makes You Happy?
What do you do to recharge and invigorate your body and soul?
I like jewelry making. Why? It's possibly because it's the only art and craft I'm good at and can excel in.
However, my personal vow to do something creative with my hands, had to benefit others and make them happy. I'd say jewelry does that perfectly.
All the best
Quick and Easy Homemade Snacks for The Work At Home Mom and Women on The Go
As a homemaker, wife and mom and working to build a jewelry brand in an already competitive market-I often need several energy boosts in a day. I get the munchies often so it's better that I eat healthy.
I like baking and collecting recipes. I have a Food board on Pinterest where you'll find out how to make these flourless peanut butter cookies. I made some moderations, as I always do. I left out the egg and chocolate chips. As you can see I made mine bite size. They were soft and not crumbly. Of you like some crunch in your cookies? The crunch came from the oats.
Come back and share your thoughts after you have given it a try or let me know if you are willing to try it.
Thanks for reading.
All the best to you

Happy Wedding Anniversary
I am so happy for Sera and her husband celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary.
I think Sera is a sweet and classy lady. I am thankful that her mom recommended me to make her Bridesmaid Gifts.
They chose Hannah's Gemstone Jewelry (HannahsGems) again for a wedding Anklet- The Light Purple Amethyst Anklet .
Here is what Sera had to say:
"Hannah's Gems fulfilled exactly what I was looking for when I asked her to make my bridesmaid's gifts. She made gorgeous memory wire bracelets that my ladies found both beautiful and sturdy. I couldn't be happier with my experience and loved that she sent each of the bracelets in their own little box. I will definitely keep Hannah's Gems in mind when I need more gifts! Thank you!"
"Each bride wants that little something that sets them apart from every other bride. I was no different when I was planning my wedding. My husband and I didn't have the traditional wedding dance and garter toss, but I still wanted something feminine and special to replace the garter. Hannah's Gems provided me with the PERFECT option! I had a BEAUTIFUL purple pearl wedding anklet. It is special and something that I get to enjoy forever and can give to MY daughter if she chooses to wear on her wedding day. Thank you, Hannah's Gems for helping make my wedding day extra special and beautiful."

My Personal Jewelry Business Challenge 2014
I have taken on the challenge of using the jewelry supplies that I have in stock without making new purchases. There are some really good sales going on and I get alerts everyday in my inbox -- I don't want to unsubscribe to my favorite sites so I delete most of them without opening them.
Here Is an Update
These alphabet beads were ordered years ago with the intention of making simple bracelets with inspirational messages and slogans for young women/girls.
I did make a few 2 or 3 years ago that sold out at a bazaar, where merchants and traders gather in one place to sell and showcase their merchandise.
I ordered a PayPal Here to take payments on the go just in time for a recent road trip. It was nice taking time out to meet friends and make acquaintances -- see new faces and old faces and enjoy the outdoors: God is Good in the splendor and variety He has created in this vast Earth WE call HOME.
