Earring Tales: Floating Twilight and Honey Gold Crystal

Honey Gold Crystal6

I love things that shimmer. And sparkle. 🙂 I’m not sure if it’s a raven-impulse, the “ooo that’s something you don’t see everyday”, or just the fact that some of the first pretty things I ever had were, frankly, bits of quartz and mica, which glimmered like light off water. I’m not a rockhound, too heavy when you also have to shift lots of books, but rocks are Very Cool.
