Aquamarine Birthstone for March

Aquamarine necklace, a treasure for the mermaids

Aquamarine necklace, a treasure for the mermaids

One of the fun things about creating  jewelry with gemstone beads is sorting through all the beads. The other day I was putting away some containers of beads, cleaning off my bead table, getting ready to make a custom necklace, when I came across this exquisite bag of Aquamarine beads. I had forgotten all about them. They were a juicy find, some of the largest round Aquamarine I had ever seen . What perfect timing to re-discover them as Aquamarine is the birthstone for March. What was even more fun was stringing these beads into this necklace. The pattern just flowed together without much thought to the design, there it was taking form almost as if a mermaid was designing this piece.  After all Aquamarine is known as a treasure of the mermaids!

Aquamarine is a cooling, calming stone. It is used by those traveling on the water as a stone of protection and safety. Sailors take note.

I hear it is helpful in cooling the body during a hot flashes. I get back to you on that one.

Now back to the storage bins to see what other gemstones I might have over looked.

Happy Birthday to all you Pisces.
