I'm going to try something new and do a sample sale on instagram. The available pieces will all be prices and have photos up in my stories. I will save it as a highlight and delete things as they sell. I have lots of stock that I made for events that were cancelled so I thought this would be a fun way to do a virtual event.

The sale is going live on Saturday May 9th.

Emerald comes from the Greek word smargos, meaning green stone, but the oldest known mine is Egyptian and dates back to 3000 BCE. It was traditionally bound to the left arm to protect travelers.
