Moonlight Gems

You never know when you'll be looking for a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry, so I wanted to pass this interesting link along. Moonlight Gems creates one-of-a-kind pieces using gemstones and either silver or gold. You can check out the website for more pieces, but I'm lucky enough to have a lovely pendant. My picture taking skillz, as always, are lacking, but here's the gist of it.

This was made for me out of a stone that Native Americans called the "happy stone." That's because it's lepidolite, which is the mineral in the mica family made mostly of lithium. So, basically, when I suck on it, I get a buzz. Seriously, did this jeweler have me pegged or what? Not to mention that it's absolutely gorgeous. So next time you're looking for a lovely gift, or something nice for yourself, do keep them in mind.
