It's adorbs! Love those wings.
Just got these (tiny 4mm size unheated sapphire and unheated ruby), and I think I would like to do a toi-et-moi. The real question is what color I should set them in.
You mean metal? I think rose or yellow would be cool.
Yellow would give it a more superhero, Wonder Woman look. That's what I think of with that colour combo anyway. Rose is more muted but "different". That's a toughie
So I was determined to stop buying gems until I set some I already have.
Two new future projects :
Bought a trapezoid zircon . I've been wanting a trapezoid so couldn't pass it up. Maybe I'll set it with the little indicolites from my "old stock" lol.
And I've been wanting a shield cut stone. But never dreamed it would be rosecut shield cut in a pinky purple sapphire! Couldn't say no to that either!
And dh asks "How many rings do you need?". Pshaw.
Progress Pics on my emerald + spinel ring that is inspired by older Victorian pearl cluster rings.
Were still not there yet but close!
There's a few changes that I made to this design but I'm going to leave them a surprise until it's finished!
I've got the second CAD for my dragonfly ring, and I think it's pretty cute. I am keeping my fingers crossed this one will get finished in November.
The colors in the CAD look a little jarring, but I 100% trust that it will look better once done with the real stones.
I feel like it’s been forever but I’m finally working on a project again. I’m setting a bright pink-fuchsia tourmaline with a tsavorite halo.
Here‘s my second CAD with David Klass.
There are currently 17 items on my spreadsheet for jewellery items to be made, a mixture of CS, lab CSs and Moissy etc., just waiting for a few more quotes to come in, before I make a decision on setting/making priorities.
I have a budget in mind, however, it does not stretch to having all 17 made this side of 2020!
The spreadsheet is needed to keep tracks of all the quotes received. Good job I get on well with the young gentleman who is my regular contact at the bench I use!
