Creative heART Challenge: Earth Fire Ruby Earrings...
Later, I discovered rough rubies and I was instantly smitten. While I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for faceted, gem-quality specimens with pristine clarity, there's just something about rough stones that makes my heart race. I think it has to do with the fact that they seem like they're plucked from the earth and have load more character than their sister stones.
It's the kind of excitement you get when you're walking along a creek bed, your pant legs rolled up and your barefeet in the cool, clean water. You're looking down through the sparkling surface, seeing little fish darting around your Achilles tendons. As you're walking along, suddenly you see something that stands out from the rest. Against the monochromatic blend of tumbled tans, browns, and beiges... there's a spark of glowing fire.
