    Mochiko - tell me more about your snake ring. Is it a co-design with Sally?

    Hi Begonia,

    I had been wanting a snake ring for a while and sent some inspiration photos to Sally (that looked nothing like the finished ring). After a while Sally came back and suggested putting her own spin on it with a curved ring, moonstone and etched Mahawan motif. I let her do her thing and this is what she came up with! I hear she may also be doing a gold version now for another customer, too. I think it would look great in gold. :appl: :appl:

    Thanks for getting back to me. I think it's very beautiful and wonderfully unique. :)) When you have some time, could we see a hand shot?

    Here is a handshot. I think I posted it on another thread before.

    This is the sketch Sally did for me that convinced me to go ahead. :appl:

    Congrats on the new baby (boy or girl?), new job, and new ring!

    Thanks Acinom. :) The cabochon bezel stacker rings are also by Sally, too.

    My Malaya garnet from Kingstone gems was set recently by Sally in rose gold with moonstones. There was a bit of a (tilt?) window which closed up with the setting. I love how it turned out!

    Fitting in nicely with my slowly growing collection :)

    I love your Malaya garnet, Eady. What a gorgeous color! The moonstones look really sensuous with the peach color. Great choices!

    Gorgeous pieces everyone!
    These are my current favorites from Sally, set with Mahenge spinels and one sapphire from my first wedding ring. Some of the spinels have been set up to three times in different pieces.

    Oh I LOVE the rich gold of your second ring tiger! Somehow the perfect pink spinal compliments it beautifully.

    theredspinel - thank you. :) I've experimented with white gold, silver and high karat yellow gold with these spinels and the yg is definitely my preference. Something about the warmth makes the reddish pink pop.

    Gorgeous pieces, Marie! What is the pattern on the ring? It is beautiful. And I see there is an inscription too, I love it when jewelry has a personal sentiment to it!

    Thanks, I'm so happy with them. The engraving patterns are roses Mochiko, I love them. Pomme's engraving is so delicate and skilfully made. The jewelry I have made seems to follow my life's journey more and more, with inscriptions and symbols close to me. Makes it so fun to wear. :)

    Really gorgeous! I think the pink spinels in the gold are glorious together.

    Awe, thank you! I'm definitely a lover of blue colored stones, but actually love all colors. Just that blue looks best on me.

    These just arrived! Featuring 6.9mm blue sheen moonstone from Barry, 4mm sapphires from Jeff Davies and 9-10mm metallic freshwater pearls from Pearl Paradise. Sally did an amazing job!

    Siameseroo, those earrings are really special - particularly love the colorway and overall silhouette of the earrings, going from moonstone to smaller sapphire to larger drop pearls... really dreamy!
