Aquamarine = Happy Marriage

I was reading about Aquamarine today online and discovered the most interesting thing. Supposedly this stone was known in ancient cultures to be a soothing stone. It was also an ideal wedding gift as it would ensure a long and happy marriage.

I find this very interesting because aquamarine is the stone that I chose for my engagement ring as well as my wedding band. It also happens to be one of my favorite stones to work with when I design jewelry.

It's funny how these things happen, hmmmm???

The last few weeks, I've done a complete overhaul on the look and feel of Chrystalyn. If you've seen the website, you know what I mean. Even the blog is showcasing the results of my focused efforts.

And now, this lovely morning, new inspiration is stirring within me. Maybe it's an effect of the new logo. Or maybe it's just the crispness of an early morning where it's actually cold outside. Either way, I feel a newness and I can see it coming around the bend in my work in the near future. What will it be exactly? Your guess is as good as mine. I'm sure we'll both be pleased, though.

Until then, I think we both should go back to enjoying our coffee...

Post Bridal Shoot

So we got married about 6 weeks ago. Crazy, I know. I just wanted to start my blog back up again with a shot of my post bridal shoot. I LOVED my dress. It's so awesome!

New Logo!

As you can see, we've got a new logo. If you venture over to the website, you'll notice that has changed completely as well. Don't be alarmed. I think such changes are necessary every few years as we progress in our work. Here's a teaser of our new setup. Now go check it out!
