Spring Fever in Center Lovell

Hello there! Alison here, itching to hang up my cooking apron and get back into the swing of things for the summer season at Harvest Gold Gallery! It was a beautiful winter in Bethel, but nothing beats Kezar Lake in the summertime.

Captain especially missed the gallery, namely his Bill & Lynda, so today we decided to take a trip out to see what was happening in and around the store. We brought our new friend Scout along for the ride. We rescued Scout from Georgia in February with the help of The Pixel Fund. He has no idea how much fun he is in for this summer, so we decided to give him a little preview!

First on the agenda was a walk down to the lake. The ice is almost out, most of it seems to be hiding right in our little cove. It was so windy that we could see white caps nipping across the lake, but the sight of that open deep blue water was refreshing.

On the way back we took a meander over to Bill’s garden, where there were little garlic tops already poking up through the soil. The peach tree is budding, and the blueberry bushes look promising.  It really is spring!!

In the gallery we got a look at the Spring Craft Fair Schedule, checked out some beautiful new pieces that Lynda has been hard at work creating, and got David Dupree’s paintings ready for their arrival at Arabica Coffee Shop, in Portland Maine.

It was great day to be in Center Lovell! Captain, Scout and I are really looking forward to this summer!! See you at the Gallery!

Spring Color in Maine Tourmlaine

It's lovely here in downtown Center Lovell these days.  Birds are back singing and the streams are running.  We hope to see the end of this years ice soon! 
 Speaking of ice, a blue ice color, that is, this deep ice blue Maine tourmaline has a diamond on each side to give it that extra sparkle. 
We have been working on new ideas for setting all our beautiful Maine tourmalines.  This new bracelet design fits close and comfortable with easy on, safe wearability and easy off.  The gorgeous Maine Rubellite is perfect center stage on your wrist.
The line between blue and green is blurred with these lovely Maine tourmalines together on a white gold band.  Depending on the light, the surrounding colors they dance between blue and green.  Like Kezar Lake when the ice is gone and the tall pines reflect their green hues, the sky it's many shades of blue, together on the sparkling surface of the ice free water.
Funny all the colors you see with these Maine bright blues and rich Rubellite tourmalines set together with white and yellow gold.  The pink has flashes of purple and orange.  The blues flicker sparks of bight purple and white.  And as always they change with their surrounding light and color.
Here they are all together.  I couldn't resist.  The golds are all different colors too.  Winter can be fun in the jewelry studio!
Cabochon style cut bright pink Maine tourmaline set in yellow gold has hints of orange and red.  
Peach or champagne?  Or both!  Designer cut flawless Maine tourmaline with diamonds in yellow gold.  Rich with colors and sparkles, every angle a new delight.  This ring is fun to wear driving in the sun!
I'm ready for another fun day in the studio discovering what the gems want to be when they are set.  
Stop by when you are in beautiful downtown Center Lovell on route 5 overlooking Kezar Lake and the White Mountains to see all the colors!!
