Do you have jewelry you don’t wear that you’ve retweaked?

My new necklace is done and home. I’m very happy with the way it turned out. While having this project done I also had him cut my eternity necklace and put a chain on the back. I never wore it as the flipping drove me crazy. Now it does not flip. 8D31EA43-CFAC-43D6-9677-C9DA20D63519.jpeg

This. Is. Gorgeous. Everything about it, from the flowers, to the style of chain, to the spacing, to the length.

Fantastic job!

I had a family stone that had been worn as an engagement ring recut by BG several years ago and had it set in a bezel pendant. But I found it small at .80 cts, especially as my studs surpassed that size! So I really never wore it. I had Caysie van Bebber make a new platinum and diamond halo for it, and while Covid has hindered my jewelry wearing since I don't go out a lot, I will definitely wear it more often as things return to normal!

It's the one on the left. The sides and back are pretty, too!

@Daisys and Diamonds I do too! I’m reworking a few things right now. Ashlee..my antique elongated asscher is going into a very simple setting. It won’t be too exciting for anyone else to see but for me it’s something I’ve been looking forward to.

@YadaYadaYada
This is what I sent David for the first draw up of the design..I also added a pic of a ring that has straight baguettes set like I would like the new setting to have. I can’t draw to save my life but I wanted you to see what this man puts up with..haha

@MamaBee, I think he appreciates people like you who know exactly what they want! Your drawings are great. I probably didn’t get off to a great start with him because I’ve completely changed directions twice before figuring out what I want.

I think some of you know that I do all my own retweaking.

Here's an ugly promise ring that got new life with a color change sapphire. It changes from purple to blue.
I bought the head at the jewelry supply shop, cut the existing head out, and soldered in the new one. Added the sapphire, and it's so much better now.

@YadaYadaYada He’s so use to people doing that...Don’t even worry about it..Some people take months to figure it out..

Here is a pair of diamond earrings from an estate sale. I cut off the posts and soldered on a bail with a little leaf. to make a pendant.

I took the neck shot before I added the leaf detail.
Anyway...I bought those earrings knowing full well that I would never wear them. But I couldn't leave them at that estate sale!
