Here at Greek Island House we are pleased to welcome in the year with new projects and new pieces for all of you. I have some beautiful new sapphires to play with and am asking for your thoughts on what to make with them. I wasn't looking for them, I just happened to be at my secret industry-only gemstone dealer in San Francisco, where I go through security and must get buzzed in through an iron gate, only to be welcomed by the owner and his stacks of trays of sparkling precious gems... Then I spotted them... a gorgeous pair of deep, rich, red, dome-shaped, beautifully faceted, 12 mm diameter sapphires! They reminded me of pomegranates! There's only one pair and they will make beautiful earrings or cuff links, in gold, sterling or vermeil. I am offering them up to you first so let's create a custom piece using these beauties just in time for Valentine's Day! Prices starting at $750 please contact me directly to set up a design consultation! 415-299-1442 firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime here is a little ancient Greek inspiration for you... a poem from the book " The Anakreontea" dating from between 100 - 600 BCE. OPA!
