amethyst

Posted by jessica
I made this ring ages ago, but I finally decided to take a picture of it recently. I have quite a few pieces of mineral jewelry, but I cannot get enough of their unique beauty. I'm really excited to check out the Toronto Gem and Mineral Show again this year. Hopefully I can stock up on some goodies to make more rings.

amethyst ring: self-made

I just wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts with you all. Lately, I've been feeling brokenhearted after seeing and hearing about all of the devastating events occurring worldwide, particularly in Japan. Sometimes I feel like the luckiest person because of everything that I have in my life, and it tears me up inside knowing that too many people in this world live in poverty, illness, discrimination, and oppression.

I often feel undeserving of the things in my life knowing that much of what we possess, like what we are born into, are arbitrarily granted to us, and I just wish I could share everything I have with the world. However, there are also so many people out there doing beautiful things for others and raising consciousness about tragic circumstances. These individuals are utterly inspiring to me.

If you can, please donate to help those affected in Japan to help restructure their lives.
