Last Day of September

Time to Meet One More Talented Artist

Today is the final day of The Handmade Forum's Spa Day Challenge. The idea was that each of the participants could take a day off from the endless task of trying to get their etsy shop seen because the rest of us would spread the word for them. It has been fun and, on my spa day, the number of views of my shop and items soared to dizzying heights.

Today is the final spa day and the artist who gets to relax is Suzanne of Stella Ziganti Designs. Her sense of color and design is quite wonderful.
Here is her shop <https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/StellaZiganti?ref=shopsection_shophome_leftnav>

Suzanne creates her jewelry using silver, copper and colored stones — and she is a real master of color.

Visit her shop to see a brilliant array of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.

What Perfect Use of Color

I absolutely love the way she has graduated the tones in these earrings of Hessonite garnets. Just slip those beauties onto your ears and make that little black dress sing!

Letting the Stones Speak

Suzanne arranged the Tiger Eye beads that make up this necklace on a simple but elegant chain of sterling silver. No embellishment is needed to show off these lovely stones.

Anyone would wear this with pride.

My Personal Favorite

Some many months ago, wanting something to combine with lapis in a pair of earrings, I came across some iolite stones. I have been quite entranced by them ever since. This necklace of natural iolite does a perfect job of displaying their rich, deep blues.

Do visit Suzanne's shop. I'm pretty sure she will have something in a color that suits you to a "T".
