Here's a small project I am working on. My dad gave me my grandmas turquoise pin because it's my birth stone. I would Not wear it as is because it's just not my taste. I decided if the stones were genuine I would have them reset into earrings.

We didn't know anything about it when I sent it off to an acquaintance who is a jewelry designer in Chicago. She determined the stones are genuine but probably dyed. Since I'm doing this for the sentimental value I decided to proceed.

We are in the sketch stage now. CADs soon. The metal will be gold plated sterling silver to keep the cost down. The drop stones will be detachable so I can wear them different ways. The accent stones will be peridot, emerald and tsav. Still decided if the center stones will be NS or EW. What do you like?

This is a sweet idea! I prefer NS, since the middle stones are pears and I'd go crazy deciding which one to put in which ear if they were EW. BTW, the rich greens are pretty with the turquoise!

Any plans for the large stone?

Great question, I did not even think about whether the center stone would point to my head or away! There will just be that one long/thin one left. Maybe a EW necklace? Something for one of my girls to wear someday?

This project is on pause because the jeweler had a family emergency. I am working w AMT out of Chicago and Alecia is wonderful to work with!
