30K GIVEAWAY

Exciting News!! I reached a new milestone of 30k followers on Instagram and thought it was time to celebrate with a giveaway, just in time for the holidays. As you know with the new algorithms, milestones are difficult to achieve organically. Therefore, in an effort to spread the love, 30 people will win a gift certificate to my gallery or website for $100.00. You read that right : 30 people. That is one person per thousand followers. Hopefully, you and your friends will want to be one of those winners! 
1. Make sure you are following me on Instagram and your Instagram account
is set to public for the duration of this giveaway
2. Tag 3 friends you hope will also win a $100.00 gift certificate!
3. You must repost one of my images (or more!)
Maybe something that's been on your wish list and tag me so I can see...

OCTOBER OPALS
OCTOBER OPALS

October 20, 2019

Fireworks, galaxies, and a shifting play-of-color are what make the opal so desirable. Opals are unlike any other gemstone in your jewelry box, beyond the myths and "supernatural" ways they form, you will never see two identical opals.
 
Opal, named from the Latin word "opalus" meaning "gemstone of many colors", was first known to mankind around 250 BC. Many cultures believed it possessed supernatural powers and carried or wore the gemstone as a prophecy and personal talisman.
