Get your green on

by catherine brawner in


St. Patrick's day is a few weeks away, but I have friends who already purchased their green months ago in preparation. If you're gearing up for the big day, consider sprucing up your outfit with Chrysophrase. The minute quantity of nickel in this gemstone gives it a minty hue that can range from a translucent sour apple green, to a darker opaque shade.

If you're looking for more green inspiration (for guys and gals!), check out the treasury I created on Etsy: Get Your Green On. Here's a sneak peak.

I've been promising a tutorial for cleaning sterling silver, but as you can see - no tarnish tutorial is posted. I hope to have it up by this weekend so stay tuned!
