Stop! Bead Show Ahead!

    Ok, so your schedule didn’t work out so that you could go to Tucson….next best thing, your local bead shows. Spring is coming on and with it comes the slew of local bead shows; national and international vendors bring direct to you their beads, findings, pendants, wire, tools, and even finished products. So ask yourself what to do, how to be a smart shopper and avoid the ‘impulse buys’ by getting prepared.

    1) So when will bead shows be in your area? Check the sites of your favorite venders they often list what shows they attend through-out the year. Also, check with any of these sites Rings & Things, The Whole Bead Show, International Gem Show and The Bead Market, just to name a few places to start.
    2) Set a budget as to what you will spend; this may be determined by stock you are out of and some left over for purchases of specialty items.
    3) Bring a couple of checks, plenty of cash and your credit cards just in case you run into someone who doesn’t take one or the other.
    4) Be sure to bring a copy of your Tax ID certificate and business cards. Some shows are known as wholesale only and will require these items for entrance. If it is a public show, don’t be afraid to ask the vendors for a wholesale discount and provide both these items to them to get a discount.
    5) Make a list of items you are out of; these will be the first things to look for at the show. If I know that I’ll be buying from previous vendors, I’ll group those items together on the list for ease.
    6) I also make a list of items I am looking for and want; it could be stones or pendants I’ve seen online or a combination of colors in another design. This helps to keep the ‘impulse’ buying down by knowing what you are looking for and can afford.
    7) Wear comfortable shoes and bring a bag to load all your goodies into.
    8) Include in your shopping bag several sizes of zip lock bags; as you find things that go together, put them in the little baggies, this makes it easy to determine why you purchased these little gems when you get home.
    9) Paper and pen; I bring paper and pen to mark bead names if they are not already marked. This makes identifying much easier than guessing or having to go through the process to indentify each unknown stone or pendant.
    10) If you are looking to match a pendant, beads or color combination you already have; bring a few of these on a string or in a baggie to matchup at the bead show. This takes the guess work out of ‘thinking’ something matched and finding out later it wasn’t even close.
    11) Bring baby wipes for easy cleanup; looking through tons of strands of beads and boxes of findings can get a little messy and dusty.
    12) Look for suppliers whose ads you’ve seen for products you’re interested in. Bring the ad if possible and look for those products; this is the perfect place to handle these items before purchasing to determine if this is what you really wanted.
    13) Take brakes and rest, get something to eat, drink and take time to review your shopping list and bag; typically it takes an entire day to attend a bead show.
    14) Last but not least; this takes willpower but walk the entire show first to see what is available, check out pricing and watch what others are buying. Many vendors have the same products and offer different discounts; look for the best quality and prices available. Make note as to vendors you want to return to for purchases of those goodies after you have finished walking the whole show.
    15) Above all --- be a smart shopper and have fun!

    Now start your shopping list, get going and Good Luck!!!

Medieval Jewelry Put on Display

    Medieval Jewelry is one of the oldest forms of body adornment. The beads with a history of 100,000 year-old made from Nassarius shells are thought to be the oldest known medieval jewelry. In the ancient world gold was the preferred metal for making jewelry. It was rare, did not tarnish and best of all it was malleable, so it could be worked fairly easily.
    Medieval JewelryIt is reported that two priceless hoards of medieval jewelry and coins have gone on display in the UK for the first time.
    Among those precious finds, some can be traced to the 14th Century. Three of the earliest known examples of Jewish wedding rings have been displayed at London's Wallace Collection.

    As for the origin of those items, experts say they were buried by families when there was Black Death in Europe. Stephen Duffy, of the Wallace Collection, in Manchester Square, said the items were "very rare and unusual survivors from the medieval period".

    One part of the display was found in the walls of a house in Colmar, France in 1863, while the lager part was found later than the first one, in 1998 at Erfurt, Germany. She said: "It is impossible to put a value on such unique objects."

    Karin Sczech, German archaeologist and curator of the exhibition said: "It is impossible to put a value on such unique objects."As well as being precious stones and materials, the items have great cultural and historical significance.

    The exhibition at the Wallace Collection in central London will open on Thursday 19 February until Sunday 10 May.

Diamond Grade-How to Grade Diamonds

    From chemistry point of view, diamond is a mineral and is the hardest substance that already known by human being in the world. It is composed of carbon. Its earliest record dates back to some 3000 years ago in India. Diamonds have always been associated with mystical power and great beauty throughout the history. Recently they are endowed with another meaning-the symbol of power and wealth.

    If you are going to spend a substantial amount of money on a diamond, it is necessary to learn diamond grade and how diamonds are graded.

    Diamonds are available in varying colors, sizes and qualities. Naturally their colors rang from very clear fine whites to pinks, bright yellows, greens and browns. The majority of diamonds used in jewelry today are white diamonds.

    The value of a white diamond is determined by what are commonly referred to as the 4Cs. The 4Cs are the Diamond's Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat. Each of the 4Cs is important and the most valuable Diamonds are those that possess the best of all four measurements.

    Clarity is the term used to describe the size and number of flaws known as inclusions in a diamond. The most brilliant diamond always has the fewest inclusions. So the fewer inclusions diamonds have the more valuable they are.

    Diamond color grades start at D and continue through the alphabet. Truly colorless stones, graded D, are extremely rare and very valuable. The closer a diamond is to being colorless, the rarer and more valuable it is.

    Carat is comparatively common term to us. The weight of a diamond is measured in carats, which is easily for us to understand. The larger the diamond (and therefore the rarer) the more expensive per carat it will be.

    While nature determines a diamond's color, clarity, and carat weight, the hand of a master craftsman is needed to release its fire and beauty. The cut gives each diamond its unique sparkle and brilliance by allowing the maximum amount of light to enter and reflect back out of the diamond.

    To find the best Diamond that fits within your price range it essentially comes down to a compromise between the 4Cs and your consideration of which factors are most important to you. If you really want a larger stone on a limited budget you could decide to purchase a stone which is graded slightly lower in terms of clarity and color.

Jewelry Temptation-How much is the necklace worth

    Now, let's read a story - Jewelry Temptation first, and then we will know that how much is the necklace worth.

    "Necklace", wrote by French writer Mobosang, is the world literature in the short story of rare works. The heroine Mathilde, is the wife of a small staff of the Ministry of Education. She dressed plainly because she could not dress well, but she was unhappy as if she had really fallen from a higher station; however,she suffered ceaselessly, feeling herself born to enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. When a chance comes, her husband and she were invited to an upper class ball; she borrowed a beautiful diamond necklace to attend it. Her vanity was fully satisfied that night. But unfortunately, after the ball she found that she had lost the necklace.

    Then she borrowed a large amount of money and spent 36,000 francs to buy a new necklace, with the appearance of the one she had borrowed. Of course, when she "returned" the necklace, she didn't tell her friend the truth. After that, Mathilde and her husband lived an extremely destitute life for 10 years and finally repaid the debt.

    However, how much is the necklace worth? Later, she accidentally met her friend, whom she had borrowed the necklace from, and knew that the necklace she had lost was a fake, worth no more than 500 francs.
    Girl necklaces picture

    In the story, when the heroine discovered the necklace, her heart throbbed with an immoderate desire. Her hands trembled as she took it. She fastened it round her throat, outside her high-necked waist, and was lost in ecstasy at her reflection in the mirror." We can feel that how a diamond necklace can tempt a woman.

    In fact, jewellery always has great temptation to women, no matter necklaces, earrings or bracelets. Any woman, anywhere, at anytime, can be attracted by any jewelry. So if you love a woman, the best gift for her will be beautiful jewelry.

    People often describe pearl jewelry and the women who wear them as class, style and timeless and other similar words. So many famous women of modern times wear sparkly pearl jewelry, which can make a big comeback. Pearl jewelry is enjoying resurgence today.

    Celebrities and other famous women influence much of the look and style in today’s fashion world while also guiding the fashion trends. Jackie O and Princess Diana, two style masters, projected a glamorous elegance that so many women have strived to emulate. There are also other women dressed with fashionable jewelry. One of the earliest known pearl collections is the Mary Queen of Scots pearls which have more than 600 pearls.

    So, do you want to be a fashion standout? There is a large amount of supply of costume pearl jewelry on the market. Wearing pearl jewelry might even inspire you to be a fashion trendsetter. Pearl jewelry is available in many hues – you could get several colors, lengths and styles and wear them to match your little black dress for many distinct looks.

    The most familiar type of pearl jewelry is freshwater pearl jewelry. This is probably the most common type of pearl jewelry sold. You can be most likely to see these sold in normal department stores as well as high end jewelry stores. Freshwater pearls range from average sizes to larger than usual. They are usually 4mm to 11mm. So you are going to be finding more and more freshwater pearls that are closer to being identical in size rather than previously.

    Pearl jewelry will never go out of style – it is always a classy and a traditional wardrobe accessory that will never disappoint. You would not be wrong in saying that pearl jewelry is forever.

Color Designs & Emotions

    Jewelry is an express and extension of the person. We’ve discussed in other posts that what we wear reflects who we are or want to be; rather it is professional and classy, sassy and casual or even flirty and wild. Designing jewelry is like being on the cutting edge of a ‘finished look’ to someone’s outfit. But it is more than that, it also an expansion of the designer and artist that created the jewelry; created from their imagination relaying on skill and experience to shape gemstones, wire, chain, silver, gold, copper, glass and crystals and anything else that they can get their hands on into something unique – an expansion of the artist or designer personality connecting with their clients and customers.

    Which leads me to an interesting article I found online at the Sessions Online School of Design; I’m reprinting excerpts because of the value of the information and the use of yet another tool for everyone to use.

    Using Colors to Connect with Your Audience

    “Color creates audience responses by stimulating emotions and communicating on levels other than reason and intellect. It can excite, impress, entertain and persuade, but color can also create instant negative associations. It’s a good idea to be aware of how the majority of people respond to color and use this information in your choice of colors. Use the guidelines in the chart below to help you choose the colors that are most appropriate for the message you want to get across in work.

    Color Chart (suggested meanings) The chart below represents several meaning for color. Each color may represent another emotion to you. Use your best judgment when dealing with color and make sure to get feedback on the colors you use.

    Aggressive, strong & heavy
    Comfort, loyalty & security
    Caution, Spring & brightness
    Money, health, food & nature
    Nature, aged, & eccentric
    Warmth, excitement, & energy
    Soft, healthy, childlike & feminine
    Royalty, sophistication & religion
    Dramatic, classy & serious
    Business, cold & distinctive
    Clean, pure & simple

    Most colors go well together with members of the same "family". Warm colors for instant, such as red, brown, orange and yellow look better together in combination warm colors; cool colors like blue, green, gray and white with cool colored families. Using color families generally makes for a more appealing presentation and makes the presentation come across as ‘complete’ rather than ‘mixed’.

    Contrast is fun and can be used effectively to accent and draw attention to such things as pendants or focal beads. In general, keep the contrast low. Too much contrast makes your work look obscure and uneven, avoid the extremes.”

    All good advice when designing at any level or anything, not just jewelry. Try mixing some of the colors together to get an eye for what ‘emotions’ your jewelry pieces might be saying. This is just another tool one can use in order to reach out to their audience, clients and customers.

Design Color Inspiration

    What inspires someone to create in certain colors? Where did they come up with the color combinations? Did they see them on TV inspired by a personality or movie star? Or maybe they see something in a magazine or just in nature or on adventurous exploration trips. As an artist or designer color combinations can be quite the challenge because of the wide ranges to choose from.

    Where ever a designer or artists gets their inspiration, it is their own and is really reflected in the art they create. I recently read a great article in the new Beading 101 & Beyond by Bead Style; “How to Mix Colors”. “Color choices are very subjective. Three great places to start when combining colors and building your color confidence; the color wheel, fashion trends and color forecasts, and ‘snapshots’ from your everyday life.”

    Color wheels can be found anywhere on the Internet and are an easy way to show complimentary color combinations; you can choose from primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors. It helps to create a broader look at several colors rather than just a few.

    Fashion trends and color forecasts are predicted months in advance of the seasons by the expert fashion industry. To find out the latest in ‘hot or in’ colors, browse thru your local mall or favorite mail-order clothes catalog. I also will browse thru the weekly Sunday paper sales ads and some of the women’s magazines just to see what people are wearing. I keep color charts that are published from year to year; this gives me an idea of what comes and goes and what stays as a ‘staple’….my advice, never throw out anything!

    Snapshots of nature, sunsets, and those vacations can bring a lot of inspiration to your designing world. There is no better palette to draw from than that of nature itself.

    Sometimes you may see a very striking jewelry piece that really accents the individual; often what we wear is a reflection of who we are; our personality or what we want to become. Jewelry can be a staple for most or an accent to finish off the best dressed or it can predict the personality of the individual. For a moment, wonder through your own jewelry collection and see what you might have… you wear a lot of sterling silver, gold, maybe a combination of the two or do you wear a lot of copper or maybe a little bit of everything.

    One of my favorite quotes is by Thomas Merton "The imagination should be allowed a certain amount of time to browse around." The more you keep things ‘fresh’ and browse around letting your imagination create, will lead to some of the best creations of our talents. Don’t be afraid to walk on the wild side and try things you have never done before; you just never know what might work and what won’t until you try!

Should An Artist Share

    There is much to be said for putting your work on the Internet; rather it is as a gallery for people to view and admire, for businesses to connect with their customers/clients, for others to sell their work online as a business, job, or hobbyist as a way to support themselves and their families, while still others put it out there for everyone to share and use. Putting one’s work on the internet no matter what type; poets, business people, writers, or artists is in some ways like hanging out the ‘come and get it’ sign. This opens the door for anyone to take what is not rightfully their own; for whatever reason, without permission. Many people when providing information or techniques do so in order to pass on their knowledge, skill and experiences to others; gladly sharing and providing further if asked, rather than taken. And when doing so, they will give credit for their sources and continue to share with their audience for their benefit.

    While I enjoy competitive and entrepreneurial spirit, I’ve asked myself some questions lately…… at what point does one stop sharing their skills, experiences and knowledge with their audience? At what costs does one say ‘enough is enough, I will not share any further?’ So why is it that people find the need to take, rather than seek and ask? Has our society become one of such disregard that before we know it there is no one with skill, information or experience to draw on in order to move forward?

    Just some food for thought……

How to tell if your pearl necklace or earring is real or fake?

    My colleagues and i love pearl jewelry very much, sometimes we will talk about how to tell if our pearl necklaces or earrings are real or fake, i will list our methods to distinguish between real pearls and fakes. I hope they will be helpful to you too.
    real pearl necklace

    First, real pearl necklaces or earrings feel rough or gritty, but fake pearls feel smooth.

    In order to test them, we can rub two pearls gently together, if the surfaces are glassy smooth, these pearl necklaces or earrings are probably artificial. However, if the surfaces are texture, these pearl necklaces or earrings are probably genuine. Another funny test is to test by rubbing a real or fake pearl against your tooth. If the pearl is made of plastic or glass, it will feel smooth. If the pear is real, we can see natural texture on the pearl necklace or earring.

    Second, if the pearl necklace or earring is sold at an unbelivable price, i think we need to test it more carefully, as we all know, there are no pies dropping from the sky.

    Third, imitation pearl necklaces or earrings are usally made by glass or plastic beads, the coating will chip over time. So we can check pearl necklaces or earrings near holes drilled trough them for tiny chips or flakes. If you see some chips, your pearl necklaces or earrings may be fake.

    Fourth, real pearls can be either natural or cultured. Natural pearls are usually irregularly shaped and not very attractive, so the naturally round pearls are precious. However, the majority of perfectly shaped pearls are cultured.

    At last, if you have better methods to test if pearl necklace or earring is real or not, please share with us! Good luck!

Red Hot Coral

    Coral has been around for thousands of years; it is not a mineral but a skeleton of sea creatures, making coral an organic in origin. Developed over many thousands of years, it consists almost entirely of calcium.

    Looking at history and legend; the ancient Egyptians placed pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because they believed that each piece contained a drop of divine blood. According to Greek mythology, when Perseus chopped off the head of Gorgon Medusa, some drops of blood splashed into the sea and there solidified into coral.

    The healing properties say coral protects against negative energy while also preventing loss of energy, diplomacy, quieting emotions, and visualization.

    Its magical properties symbolize joy and happiness, it enables the wearer to enjoy life; according to legend it consists of divine blood as we have already learned. Red coral is associated with Scorpio, black coral with Capricorn, and pink coral with Tarsus.

    It is found in the reefs of warm seas, particularly east of Australia, around Japan, Africa, Mediterranean and the Canary Islands. It comes in several colors such as pink, salmon pink, red and also white and black.

The Origin of Wedding Rings

    The origin of wedding ringsIn many countries' culture, it is indispensable for the bridegroom and the bride to exchange their wedding rings in the wedding ceremony. Generally, a wedding ring (wedding band) consists of a metal ring, generally on either the left or right ring finger. Such a ring symbolizes marriage: a spouse wears it to indicate a marital commitment to fidelity.

    It was a Austria king who first used wedding ring as a love token. In 1477, the king met a princess called Mary. Mary's beauty and grace attracted the king. Although the king knew that Mary had had affiance with another guy, he still tried his fortune by giving Mary a very precious wedding ring. At last, Mary was moved by the exquisitely carved wedding ring and the king's sincerity, so they married with each other. From then on, people have treated Diamond wedding ring as a love token.

    Nowadays, with the development of technology, more and more shapes and styles of wedding rings come out. People now have more chances to show loves to their sweethearts.

Twist on Turquoise

    Although often mistaken by fakes such as Howlite, Chrysocolla, and Magnesite (which are all natural gemstones in their own rights), Turquoise is generally very distinctive with its vivid blue-green color and smooth, waxy appearance. One of the most beautifully colored of all stones; turquoise is a phosphate that combines copper and aluminum. The copper causes the exquisite blue-green, but the color varies from green to yellowish gray. Pale sky blue, such as the most sought after Sleeping Beauty, is the most cherish gem color; especially when infused with fine veins of impurities that show it is natural and not artificial.

    For thousands of year, the best Turquoise came from the deserts of Persia and was known as Persian Turquoise. In the late 1800’s, deposits of Turquoise were discovered in the American southwest, and this is now the world’s prime source of high-quality ‘Persian’ Turquoise.

    Southwest turquoise mines cover Nevada (where the majority of turquoise deposits are found), Arizona, and parts of New Mexico, Colorado; with one lone mine in California.
    Nevada hosts the majority of the turquoise mines such as Valley Blue, #8, Montezuma, Zuni, Lone Mountain, Red Mountain, and Godber just to name a few. Arizona of course has the famed Kingman and Sleeping Beauty mines along and Colorado has Cripple Creek, Kind’s Manassa and Leadville. And of course the lone mine of San Bernardino in California rounds out the southwestern turquoise mines.

    Of course, the American Southwest is not the only place to find Turquoise. Excellent mine finds have come out of China, Mexico and parts of Africa.

    This piece highlighted here is a twist on the old Turquoise favorite matched with Picture Jasper. I’ve highlighted some of the Picture Jasper stones with non-tarnish brass wire swirls. Dangle hoops complete this causal yet classy look in the same turquoise and picture jasper gemstones.

How to choose good jewelry

    Women are lucky, they are beautiful, and they can be even more beautiful with the help of Jewelry. Women usually have different types of jewelry for different occasions such as clubs, parties, dates, weddings, family events, etc. No matter real jewelry or fake ones, they can make an ordinary woman looks gorgeous. Every woman can easily get her own jewelry because there are not only thousands of choices in the fashion jewelry industry, but also there are thousands of stores to buy jewelry. Now let’s talk about how to choose pretty good sterling silver jewelry.

    Generally, all the metals should be marked by the maker and the metal quality. For sterling silver, the mark should be either 925 or "sterling".
