    Here are the CADs for my colored stone earrings. From the top to the bottom they are 9mm amethysts, 7mm natural blue zircon, and 5mm demantoid garnets. The mountings will be 14k white gold hung from lever backs. They are being made by Adazias Jewelry Ateleir from etsy. If these turn out as well as I hope, I have a set of warm stones that I'll have done in 14k yellow gold.

    These look fantastic! I love the detail on the baskets. What has the process been like with this vendor?

    I applaud your courage in reaching out to a new vendor, and lordy, they came through for you! I can't wait to see the ear shots! Are you still planning on having them make a similar set for the warmer colored stones? :appl:

    Process has been okay except she takes longer than her estimates. Not terribly so though. She says she hopes to have them ready within the next several days. Only thing, I expected hand made wire mountings, but apparently they are cast. That's okay.

    I am still planning the warm (spess, garnet, yellow sapph) set after I see how I like these.

    She initally said two weeks, but JCK came at the beginning. I sent my stones on May 27, then had to contact her on June 6 to see if they'd arrived. She said she was beginning work on June 9. I contacted her again on June 22 to check on the progress. She said she was working on them and I should receive CADs that evening. Well, I received CADs today on June 27. So, the two weeks have turned into four. I'm going to be on vacation until July 11, so we'll see if they're done when I get home!

    WOw. the cads look like architectural drawing for skylights on a new wing of an old museum (think: the Met).

    Here are the unpolished castings. She said they'll be ready sometimes this week. My fingers are crossed!
