    I got the message this morning that my earrings are done. They turned out better than I could imagine!! For those of you just joining in this saga, I had a pair of 9mm amethyst, 7mm blue zircon, and 5mm demantoid garnets that I wanted set in dangle earrings. However I couldn't find anything that fit my rather eclectic tastes, until I stumbled onto AdziasJeweleryAtelier on etsy. I love the pictures of her "swirly" pieces. When I contacted Adzia, she was happy to take on this project. Initially I planned on going with sterling to keep costs down, and as I saw these as costume pieces. But as I saw the CADs develop, I knew these were going to be heirloom pieces, and I would do an injustice to the beauty by going with silver, so I upgraded to 14k white gold. I must say, based on the pictures, I'm sure glad I did. I wanted to share the link with you so that you can see not only my earrings, but have a chance to see Adzia's other beautiful pieces. http://www.etsy.com/listing/77621430/14k-white-gold-purple-amethyst-blue
    My next plan are the same earrings in yellow gold with garnet, spess, and yellow sapphires. I've got the money ready, and as soon as I have the white gold in my hands and have a chance to assess them, I'm sending the warm stones on out! Enjoy the pictures.

    LOVE THEM!! I'm so glad I talked you into keeping those beautiful demantoids!

    These earrings are truly more beautiful than I imagined.

    I forgot to give OUPeargirl the complete props for these earrings!!!

    I was considering selling the demantoids when she suggested they'd look great in earrings. We sat around that night (with several glasses of wine) and doodled. The descending drops were the result.

    Then I started looking for someone to execute. That's when I found Adzia.

    OU, not only are you the greatest friend ever, you've got a great eye for jewelry design!!! Love ya, girl!!! :bigsmile:

    Wow, wow, wow! Those look phenomenal! I have a real weakness for earrings, and these are gorgeous. I'll be looking forward to hearing what you think about the workmanship IRL, but the photos look excellent. :appl: :appl:

    With her cool esthetic and demonstrated skill, I'm thinking she's going to be getting a lot more custom requests.... :naughty:

    She does amazing pave work too! Take a look at her completed pieces!!

    W :love: W the baskets and the way the prongs are incorporated into the crown/flower design is spectacular. Fantastically unique. Enjoy wearing them.

    :appl: Those look like so much fun to wear! I think it's great the dems are at the bottom where they will move the most and show them off to the best effect.

    They arrived yesterday and I am truly blown away!! Not only are they as beautiful as the pictures, but they have a delicate quality that the giant macro shots cannot impart. They are exactly one inch from the top of the amethyst to the bottom of the demantoid. And the movement is subtle but catches the light beautifully!

    I hope to get pictures today. I'm down with a bad case of bronchitis, but I hope my daughter will help by loaning her ears!! Watch this space for further updates. :naughty:

    I want to thank my daughter for lending her ears and time for the photoshoot. I couldn't accurately catch the colors. The glamour shots do that better. But now you can see what they look like worn. I love them!
