The best of late June, by Zachary Pryor Jewelry (etsy)

Aquamarine and Solar Quartz sterling necklace
Solar Quartz is a natural agatized quartz that is sliced from stalactites in clear, white or gray, with mossy inclusions. As with all quartz it is an energy enhancer, connecting to spirit and harmony.
Solar Quartz is said to bring emotional strength and uplifting with great power and energy.
The stone at the center is a gorgeous blue solar quartz set with sterling overlay. Natural and color treated faceted aquamarine rounds are wire wrapped with small sterling chain accents. This piece fastens in the front with a gorgeous vintage sterling toggle clasp. The necklace measures 17 inches in length.

Fun Fandom necklaces! – oxidized brass Loki necklace and Rhinestone R2D2 chain bib necklace. Geeky heart, stylish body.

To honor a beloved animal – they are coy, they are sly, cunning, they are adorable. And now they shine bright like a diamond. Emerald and White rhinestone gold fox charm earrings – with moving tails!

This beauty is named ‘Sky Blue and Black’ after a Jackson Browne song. I read a portion of the lyrics at my best friend’s funeral many years ago because we always sent lyrics to each other while I was in college. I miss her every day, but honoring her with a necklace once every so often gets me thinking about her and how much I loved and learned with her. This particular one is a Gunmetal and blue crystal druzy crystal cluster.


The latest/greatest

   
    
    
    
 
A glimpse into my week shows you waterfalls and swimming holes, gay fun with toys (green lantern John Stewart and MOTUC Clamp Champ), yellow apatite, Star Wars necklaces (Darth Vader and C3PO), green tourmaline, nautical goodness with pearl, pink coral and starfish, and even a handful of huckleberries. 

This week was my first time picking huckleberries. Searching for them is a a ton of work and often times a bush will have just one or two tiny berries. It took hours to get just half a cup, but they are oh so delicious. 

The Star Wars pieces are always a hit – both are bib necklaces with steampunk elements. Yellow apatite is my biggest seller on etsy as the stone is a bit harder to come by than it’s teal blue counterpart and each piece has a prism locked inside it. The green tourmaline is a favorite of mine as it combines emerald with olive, two of the very best shades of green. The stone dances around on vintage gold plated chain in the pair of earrings pictured here. I have already received beaucoup compliments on the nautical inspired pink coral and pearl bracelet – complete with starfish charm, so that one is sure to go quickly. A little black love in toy form here with a shirtless masters of the universe Clamp Champ and Green Lantern’s own John Stewart. They were photographed in the very same swimming hole where I am pictured and I’m not telling where that was as it is my secret spot, just for me.  

All of the beauties pictured here are listed now on my etsy site, HERE Etsy Zachary Pryor – except for the huckleberries and the toys. Those are mine.
