July Birthstone Ruby and Friends from Team Elite

Finally summer is here and  I have this happy feeling of freedom, watching people stroll along the beach, going out with their kids ,outdoor shopping, fairs, out door swimming,etc.,  but with it comes, the sometimes hard to bear heat which causes us to  stay indoors with the air condition   avoiding  the strong UV rays and the humidity.

So - welcome July with your good and your bad! (and whose perfect?!) I accept you as you are! I love your Ruby red birthstone, and will show some items which have to do with your birthstone! All creators are members of the Elite team on Etsy which I have joined only recently.

I'll begin with my own stuff (yours humbly!)

I have handcrafted these Ruby Red Sea glass earrings. I simply picked two pieces from my beach glass collection box and set them in sterling silver bezels, soldered  the ear wires on their backs ,added hooks for the ear wires. They look like two raw Ruby stones hanging from the ears of the young lady who will wear them (this includes all ages of us ladies, as we are ALL young! -in our hearts at least that is!).

 I have checked a few items among the Elite team members which would go well with July Birthstone and have found two more lovely items:

The first is this awesome scarf from seno's Shop . This shop belongs to Senem from Ankara Turkey, and includes handmade accessories. A mother of Ada who was born in 2009, she sells handmade beauties crafted by her aunt, sister and herself. I have entered her shop and loved each item. The photos are beautiful too!

Now for a stunning photograph I found in the third Elite team member's shop named SassInc:

I find that this dramatic romantic image fits perfectly into my July Birthstone post.

In Christy's shop  SennoInc you will find Fine art photography, invitation and stationery designs,candles, soaps and more.

Christy is  a freelance photographer, and takes photos of everything she likes as she believes in the importance of documenting moments in life with photography! She also designs card invitations and more. You will find a variety of her art in her shop.

So kind folks, until my next post - adieu!
