Volume 12 | December 2021


December brings all the happy events like family outings and gatherings! Of course, I especially relish getting together with good friends and enjoying great eats.

Last week, we went to a hidden Vancouver Christmas gem ... the Festival of Lights at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It was a truly dazzling experience walking high above in the trees tops and seeing twinkling and glimmering lights dance far into the woods!

A wonderful way to rest up after the Circle Craft Market and set the mood for a final busy month as Santa's Helper!

The Amazing "Festival of Lights" at the Capilano Suspension Bridge ... Perfect for a family outing to enjoy a beautiful night together!
I love these amazing lights!
All set to celebrate the Festive Holidays !
To everyone who came out to the Circle Craft Christmas Market and making the 2021 Market one of the best ever!
Congratulations to

Acorn Pearl Earrings
So nice to be back at Circle Craft Christmas Market again after a 2 year absence! Seeing old and new friends, and feeling normal, albeit with some masked adjustments ... it was all worth it to ensure that shoppers and vendors alike could enjoy the event safely.

DECEMBER Birthstone

Sparkling Blue Topaz

Although this time of year is strongly associated with holiday hues of red and green, there are many different colors to choose from when it comes to selecting birthstone jewelry for the December birthday in your life! From the light, bright rich hues of blue topaz. Blue Topaz symbolizes honesty, clarity of feelings, and deep emotional attachment. Often associated with loyalty and love, this gem represents eternal romance and friendship. 

The name itself likely comes from an island in the Red Sea, which the Greeks called Topazos (it's now named Zabargad). The stone we now recognize as being "topaz" was never found on Topazos, but other gems called "topaz" by ancient peoples without good knowledge of mineralogy, certainly were.

Healing with Blue Topaz

Blue Topaz brings truth and wisdom. It aids in clear communication. Blue Topaz helps in bringing body, mind and spirit into union. It assists in recognising where you have strayed from your own truth.

From Chi's Bench ...  Repurposed Delights

Let me help you tell your stories!
I delight in giving new life to tired jewelry with my "re-purposed" designs.

Creating new expressions from family legacy pieces are so heart-warming
when I can be part of their journey ... 

An engagement ring, family ring or necklaces - they all combine wonderful memories, bringing happiness to both me and everyone involved!

diamond pendant !

Kelly had a bunch of jewelry pieces that she was not wearing and wanted to have them updated.
Especially a cherished Hematite ring from her Dad.
