OoOoH! AW! The Titanic! I have such a soft spot for the Titanic (more so for the people who were on it). My parents were very lucky to have gotten to go to Gatlinburg last week for a Titanic thingy. It was amazing and the items they brought back from the whole thingy were heart breaking! It was kind of like a "re-enactment" sort of thing, just to give a more intimate idea of how things were on the Titanic. I was SO jealous that I didn't go. She didn't tell me where they were going and I didn't find out until she'd left and my lovie told me!
Anyways, enough about that.
My favs are:
*Amethyst mostly because it's my birthstone, but it is pretty, just not my very top fav. Say I could choose my birthstone, it'd so be opal!
*Opal. My top favorite! I remember when I first fell in love with Opal. My mom & dad had taken my twin sister & me and we all went to the Smoky Mtns for vacation. My mom bought let me pick out my very first pair of earrings up there, I chose these gorgeous opal stones. I was still in the 6 week wait or whatever since I'd gotten them done only shortly before leaving and could not wait to have them in.
Our 12 year old's birthstone is opal. I always joke about trading with him.
I also love fire opal, blue fire opal! I even love jelly opal although the colors are more fady, it's still stunning. Talk about gorgeous!
Still, nothing takes my breath away like the opal stones.
Others I really love are turquoise, blue topaz, tourmaline and pearl! I use pearls more often than anything when I make jewelry.
