Welcome to Day One of the Great A to Z Blog Challenge!

Purple is my favorite color, so amethyst has always been one of my favorite semiprecious stones. Amethyst appears quite frequently in both Art Nouveau and Art Deco designs.

 

14k gold, amethyst, enamel, and pearl.

Once again I shall be celebrating the arrival of Spring by participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge. This will be my fourth year, and I look forward to even more fun and meeting new friends.

In past years, my themes have included Travel Adventures, Unusual Items Made of Chocolate, and Bad Sword & Sorcery Movies.

This year I will be bringing you eye candy taken from another one of my secret passions:

Jewelry, housewares, and a few other surprises, at least one for every letter of the alphabet! I’ll be looking forward to your comments!
