Gift Giving through the Zodiac - Adornments for the Leo

Leo - The Lion
23 July - 23 August

This series of articles will feature ideas for zodiac inspired handmade gifts from members of the Trans-Canada Etsy Team. Each new zodiac month will begin with an introduction to the qualities associated with the present astrology sun sign. Throughout the rest of the month I will feature items which have those qualities and/or would be a suitable gift idea for people of that sign.

Adornments for the Leo:

'Picasso Marigolds' earrings by Adornyou, and in her own words: "Wonderful warm earthy colors with smiling marigolds!" How Leo is that? Reflections of Leo are everywhere in this delightful set of earrings: the orange and copper colours, the marigold flower which is associated with Leo and even in the suggestion of creativity in the title 'Picasso Marigolds".

This beautiful 'Summer series' silver ring has been created by Vancouver jewelry designer Colleen Baran. It has clear simple lines reflecting a big summer sky and can be seen as a rainbow or the sun's halo. This bold and joyful design would perfectly suit the Leo's warm sunny nature.

Neawear's wonderfully extravagant 'Bling bracelet' with it's flash of gold will appeal to the flamboyant nature of most Leos. Gold is the metal associated with Leo and the sun, as well as stones like ruby, jasper, amber, topaz and citrine quartz.

This feature has been prepared for you by Morgen of Inkyspider Textile Designs and Kootsac re-usable bulk food bags.
