New Koroit Opals…

Sorry for the delay folks! I had meant to post these Friday, but this past week was a little hectic. Below are my newly acquired treasures: some lovely smaller sized Koroit Boulder Opals from Queensland, Australia. I have tried to photograph them at different angles to show the extent of their flash and colouring. The detail in these stones are divine. All *except* the blue stone on the right in the photos of three cabs are up for grabs. Custom orders will resume July 1st unless I am currently working on a piece for you.

Also new July 1st: my first official Rock Appreciation Day! A friend suggested an in depth post of a single stone type, so from now on, the first day of each new month will feature a new kind of stone. Pieces that have either been sold, commissioned, or are up for sale in the shops featuring the stone will be shared. Check back July First to see what kind of stone you can learn about and how I chose to work with it!

I have several pairs for the stretched earlobe folks in the works. Many are dangles and hoops for tunnels in 12 gauges. These will be in the http://www.gaugedbystasia.etsy.com shop *next week*. Preview photos will be posted prior to being listed in the shop! Subscribe to the blog or check http://www.facebook.com/TheStrayArrowJewelry to find out when.

Now for my favourite new addition. Hand sawed of bronze and silver, turquoise flower hair pins and braid ends! These hair adornments can double as hair ties, or can be slipped onto a bobby pin. Sold in singles and pairs, below are examples of custom orders~

PEER VENTURE:

In other news, fellow artist Tory Novikova has released a new line of spritely summer bags in her Etsy shop! As many artists, we each agreed to a trade-a turquoise hair tie for my very own FOX bag. These are 100% cotton, slightly sheer, and EVER so much more sturdy than you could possibly imagine. It is now my staple “going to the Post” tote, and can take a great amount of weight. The antique faded colour palettes of these three designs (FOX, POLAR BEAR, and OWL), make these the perfect beach bag. The adorable subtle tags on the inside give them an extra level of professionalism and class. I also hear that a fairy&mushroom theme will be forthcoming! These make spectacular gifts. Behold the lovely artist and her newest creation!
