Volume 34 | FEBRUARY 2024

Hello Chi Cheng,

February is as a month that is dedicated to love. However, February is not only just about Valentines and sweethearts. It can also be a month for self-love and self-care, fostering relationships with family and friends, and loving others. It is also perfect timing for me to celebrate the Lunar New Year with friends and family, far and near!

Just Peachy

The symbolism of Pantone's 2024 color of the year Peach Fuzz is more than just a color; it's a symbol of our times. It represents a collective yearning for comfort, warmth, and a touch of joy in everyday life.

A soft, pinkish-orange hue called “Peach Fuzz” is Pantone's pick for the 2024 Color of the Year. Officially called “Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz,” the color is “velvety,” “gentle” and “subtly sensual,” according to the design and color authority.

Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It's velvety, gentle peach tone evokes an all-embracing spirit that enriches mind, body, and soul.

Appreciate everyone's continue support and inspiration!

Pantone 2024 Color

"Peach Fuzz"

Self love ring

A self love ring is commonly worn on the pinky finger of either hand. This was initiated to symbolize a pinky promise about loving yourself to the fullest.

A ring you buy for yourself and wear in the spirit of LOVE and COMPASSION for the essence of who YOU are.

This is my own pinky "Self Love Ring"

Calming | Creativity | Immunity


Amethyst’s deep purple and cloudy white coloring makes it an extremely calming gemstone. Known for soothing anxiety, it helps remove the stress of fearing the unknown. An additional benefit of amethyst is that it increases a person’s intuition and opens more pathways to creativity. It’s the birthstone for the month of February, but anyone who feels drawn to this lavender-hued stone can reap its soothing benefits. It scores a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, which is a great hardness for jewelry. We love adding little pops of purple in our jewelry with amethyst because it perfectly complements other gemstones, or creates an eye catching piece on its own.

Natural tranquilizer

Amethyst relieves an individual from stress and strain, soothes irritability,

balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety.

GIA Information About Amethyst

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 necklace - they all combine wonderful memories, bringing happiness to both me and everyone involved!

Ring Jacket for a Large Cluster Ring

Giving the classic cluster ring an updated look and feel! This new design enables the top-heavy cluster to stay on top and not spin! The gold ring jacket can also be worn just by itself ... two in one!

Sister Love ... Sister Rings

One of my favorite Repurposing projects is to make "Sister Rings" ... Reminds me very much of strengthening the bond between my own sister by sharing Mom's ring.
