Those who follow my facebook page know that I was again attending a craft fair, which finished today. The theme was Valentine's day and personally for me the theme was also - the new Chinese year. The past month a prepared a new series of jewelry, which central element were Carnelian and Red Jasper gemstones. That wasn't a random choice of stones, but on the contrary I wanted to make a series which is connected with the new lunar year which goes under the symbol of the Fire Monkey. So just like the monkey expects from us, I played around with those stones, I had a lot of fun working with them and created 5 small sets of jewelry. Each set has a different time period element, a hint of history, starting from Ancient time and finishing in Modern time.
