So it’s been a few weeks since I got to do a birthstone print. Honestly unless it’s the weekend there isn’t a lot of time to get to work on my own stuff. Especially when it’s dark, and gloomy, and cold out, it’s hard to get myself to do anything. I really want to get the birthstone prints ready to go for the 13th, though, so here’s hoping I can maybe book some time off from work to work on my own things. We’ll see what the next couple of weeks hold.
Anyways so I actually had no idea what the June birthstone is, I don’t have anyone close to me that is born in June. I think the usual is Pearl, or agate, but I’m not a big fan of pearls personally and agate doesn’t sparkle, and it’s more fun to illustrate something sparkly, so I went for Alexandrite. It’s a purpley magenta stone. It’s said to bring success, health, and money.
Have to share the Tiffany poem, also:
Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of agate on her hand
Can health, wealth, and long life command.
