I love lavender and monsoon skies

I love lavender. The color, the plant, the scent, the stone... The stone? Lavender Plume Agate, a fascinating agate from Indonesia, is a relatively new discovery for me. In a dreaded late night scrolling session on Instagram last winter, I came across a stone that caught my eye immediately. It was Lavender Plume Agate. I bought it right there. I have since acquired a few more stones, and this summer is finally time to work with them.

With the summer monsoons rolling in to Southern Arizona come the most dramatic skies I've ever seen. The plume agates in this necklace and cuff convey that moody, foreboding, yet alive feeling of the stormy skies.

These new items are pricey, I know. Time, metal and stones are the wages of a working artist. I've been a silversmith for ten years and the quality and design of Lumenrose Jewelry reflects that. I intentionally offer a broad assortment of items in a wide range of prices. I'm being honest here, that I myself certainly cannot make $200 (or more and often less!) purchases lightly. Considering all that, I wanted to offer an option to ease that sticker shock. If you take a peek at any of the product pages in the online shop, you'll see a new payment option. It's called Quadpay. It's a feature that allows you to split any order over $150 into 4, interest-free payments. Its super easy and doesn't require much information. Once you pay the first installment, I ship your item and the remaining payments are billed over 6 weeks.

I share all that so it's clear what this new payment option is. It's kind of like layaway, but you don't have to lay anything away-- in fact you get it right away and pay over time! Now back to monsoons....check out this stunning evening sky a few days ago here in Southern Arizona.
