Jewelry for walls!

Emeralds are my favorite gemstone.  I have a wonderful emerald cabochon ring but I don’t wear it very often because the stone is soft and liable to crack if I don’t behave myself.

When I was at the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show I found a seller of beads that had a heap of the most vivid green glass chunks ready for stringing.  I bought hand fulls because they looked just like emeralds.  I rarely use green in my work because its a color that doesn’t sell very well( I know!).  So this mirror is for me.  But if you are interested contact me.

One of my favorite scenes in the movie Gigi( 1958) is the “jewelry lesson” scene where the adolescent Gigi is taught about jewels by her aunt, a former courtesan.  This is one of the most gently brittle comic performances and is played by the great Isabel Jeans.
