We’re past halfway into the month.. so I figured I’d try to have something interesting to say about this month.. a little slow, I know ;)
January’s birthstone is garnet.. so let’s see what I can find online about the garnet.
"... to resist melancholy and poison, stop the spitting of blood and dissolve tartar in the body" -(William Rowland, Physician, on a special medicine prepared from Garnets, 1669)
Haha.. interesting isn’t it???
Now for the good stuff.. some jewellery!! :D
Nice combination of smooth beads and faceted stones in these grape cluster earrings!
Pretty little cluster ring with diamonds, set in yellow gold..
Now this reminds me of a ring I bought for my daughter a few years back.. but with a different centre stone.. this is such a sweet setting, don’t you think?
This is a rather fancy one.. the setting is a classic one, I used to see these all the time.. I love the tear-drop pendant.
This one I really like, I’m a big fan of pearls, and I like the red & white colour scheme.. pretty!!!
The flower for January is carnation.. definitely not one of my favourites but it is a pretty flower when it’s nice and fresh. I think I like white the most… I found this picture on www.judithbarathart.com .. hope she doesn’t mind me borrowing it!
Isn’t she a great photographer?? Beautiful!
Finally, if you live anywhere near me, January usually means blizzards, ice-cold temperatures, and snowplows.. but so far this month we’ve been pretty lucky!
