Opals or Tourmalines - October Birthstones

If you were born in October, lucky you! Your birthstones are tourmalines and opals, awesomely gorgeous gemstones! Here is a small sample of October birthstone jewelry from our CCCOE mates:

From Emayuka, I found these earrings with watermelon tourmaline slices. Aren't they fab? 

But, just in case you'd rather have opals, here is a delish opal necklace with dangling labradorites on a sterling silver chain from JewelryBySonjaBlume

How about a necklace with tourmalines? 
Here's one from DistinqueJewelry. Beautiful!!!

What? Wow! A four finger opal ring from NINOTCHKAgoods. How original is that? 

Love, love, love these earrings by SurfAndSand. Check out how many tourmalines are in these earrings. Ninety-six!

I love pink opals, so I couldn't leave out BellaBeadsOriginals' necklace. Had to include pinkness!

There were so many beauties from our major talented team. It was so hard to choose, but that's how life works, gotta make choices. I'm happy with the ones I've just made!

September Finds

In my monthly quest to highlight CCCOE shops that you might not have noticed, I stumbled across some interesting jewelry finds.  

Bobbie pins in orange? Oooh...

And this is very hippie/bohemian.

What a great pale bracelet. I'm sure this would go with just about everything in your wardrobe.

I've seen the feather earrings, so why not a feathered anklet?

And these long, slender earrings are such a lovely shade of pink.

The geek in me loves the octopus in space.

Since my medium is fiber, I am awed by those that make things from metal.
