    Oh thank you Jeanne and Nicole! Jeanne, what does Dominican larimar look like?

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    True larimar is only mined in DR. It can be blue or blue green. The pendant with the leaf bail and silver beads is one of my designs.

    The two top picks with the leaf bail are mine. It looks bluish on my screen. but there is a greenish tint. The rounds are amazonite, not gr. aventurine like previously stated.

    The only other place I’ve seen it is in Key West. Then you can just find it mounted with sterling.

    Thanks Funny Chick! I’m pretending I’m at the beach right now…LOL Jeanne, that is such a cool stone, it looks like a bird’s-eye view of a cluster of islands. It also kinda looks like tie-dye! lol Lovely necklace, too ;)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    tie dye is great description.
    Thanks!!
    Didn’t mean to take away from your luscious pick. I really thought the rounds were gr. avent. till I looked closer and checked the receipt. lol

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Don’t be silly, Jeanne, I love when people post pics, especially of their own creations! And now thanks to you I know what Dominican larimar looks like! ;) Anita, the beach is just great. I’m catching a tan as we speak! (No, really I am cuz I’ve been back and forth playing outside with the kids and coming in to check on the fresh picks! lol)

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    I’m actually on a laptop too, but the battery is so old that it has to be constantly plugged in or it will die on me! Otherwise I would’ve brought this baby outside with me too! :(

    Jeanne!! Love your larimar pieces!
    I fell in love with larimar a few years ago while in Mexico. I have a strand of nuggets and a few other pieces that I’ve been hoarding.
    I don’t think it’s the right thing to ask, but I’d love to find a SS bail like the one you used. Would it be wrong to ask where to find them? (Sorry LB I have a need for this finding.)

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Yes, I still have to enter grades, myself. Used self-discipline and finished the plans last night. I’m ready to play, mostly, now! Love both the pick and the jewelry! I’m a beach fan, myself. Just wish I were there…

    Well, the rain has stopped so I’m going to see the roses out back…

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    And Ivy, Fantastic colors in this pick! It really looks like sand and ocean blue water. Ahhhh.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    Sorry Mary I got the bail at a local bead shop. There are a few websites that carry them, but I find it a hard item to get online. We had to match this one up – the pendant had a really big hole.

    djohnson (sorry – I don’t know your first name) luckily my principal hasn’t asked for my plans all year. benefit of 25 year? I do have them most weeks, but I’ve been lacking in motivation lately.

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    My name is Debra. Our district has gone to a “new paperless system” that any “high-up” in the district can view whenever they want. They also like to “surprise” you with a 4-minute walk-through each month. Some of them like to check online what you have planned… As for the paperless part, I’m using 3 times the paper because I have 30 preps a week, it only prints on 1 side, etc. Crazy, isn’t it? Hey, I hope none of the “high-ups” are into beading…

    Ivy: Do you know about the FMG contest? I’ve entered twice (excluding this year). Last year I won 3rd place in briolette category. If you know about it, I can give you the piece # so you can see some other jewelry I’ve done…

    Ivy, beautiful pick!
    I am in Houston. and somehow I cannot play with picks , the system does not let me do that(:
    I buy my SS from The Jewelweaver.com. I use Bali SS:)They have great choice and good prices and very good quality of SS.

    Ivy,

    Love your latest “beach” Pick, makes me wish I was on a WARM beach somewhere!!!

    jeannes gems, thanks much for sharing pics of your larimar jewelry, very stunning! I’ve seen larimar at bead shows, haven’t bought any yet because it’s a bit pricy!!! ah, someday… so little time, so many beads to buy, LOL! :)

    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    Nicole, Little Chick..I went to the FMG site and it didn’t take too much detective work to see your gorgeous designs! Your talent and creativity are mind boggling. Since you are our little chick I can’t help but be SO proud of you! You most certainly have a career in jewelry, art & design. Beautiful jewelry!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    btw: I have 4 designs right now at the FMG site…but I’ve sent in 3 new pieces for the ’09 contest, so it’ll be a few months (or maybe a year) before they’ll hopefully have those posted! I can’t wait! I’m hoping to win the gold this year…(or silver would be fine)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I know what you mean about the expense for imported larimar.What you see if my entire stock. When you get larimar in the Dominican Republic you can barter and get it very reasonably – but then you do have travel expenses – lol!

  34. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Little Chick, I do know about the contest since I regularly order from them and get their catalogs all the time in the mail. (But I do have to say that LB gemstones are of much better quality!) I bet I saw your design and didn’t know it was you! I’ll have to go look you up now! :)

    Fashion Chick aka SC says:

    I love LB too and this pick! I just want them to carry sterling silver so that I can shop here for just about everything. Does anyone know when we can expect the silver?

  38. Chicky Suz aka Susan Z
    Chicky Suz aka Susan Z says:

    Wow! Little Chick, your designs are beautiful! You are very talented……And, Ivy..I could use a nap on the beach right about now!

    Smoky Rose says:

    we honeymooned in DR. Larimar is pretty – softer blue than most turquoise, with white wispy inclusions rather than the black brown more rigid with turq. Jeanne, the pieces you’re showing are beautiful!
    Ivy – this pick is great!

    Thank you Smoky Chick! ;)
