You should start your own thread, voce I love seeing other people's projects and you have a great eye!Leslie, I loved your paraiba and demantoid eternity, and I've already started a 5 stone eternity with 3 demantoid and 2 paraiba, but that one will be in white gold.
One of these days I will stop being lazy and start a thread to post my jewelry projects this year. I am planning at least 12 with Yvonne, and I'm starting to think about setting a "Jedi" spinel with Ivyandrosevintage.
I'm pretty much putting 100% of my disposable income towards hobby projects. My crochet yarn is less than $200. The test of that, I've spent on gems/jewelry.

Yvonne suggested alternating the demantoid and paraiba and I'm so glad she did! I would still consider making an all paraiba band in WG with slightly larger stones. Good luck finding a Jedi spinel
Love the emeralds and the hamster too!This warms my heart! That is probably the cutest rat that ive ever seen.
I have a long haired Syrian hamster and I'm in love with her!
Heres her little fuzz butt; Her name is Dove (:
& Ive been so quiet and such a lurker lately, heres what I'm wearing today;
-My custom 14k yellow gold bezel set untreated (Zambian) emerald cabochon ring
- A new purchase handmade in 14k yellow gold from fellow NewMexican "Anat Perez". It has a unoiled 3mm Columbian emerald and two little diamonds. I'm so obsessed with it! She sells this ring for $440.00 (rightly so for the emerald) but I was extremely lucky and found it preloved on ebay for $80.00! The little Emmy has great sparkle and clarity.
It was one of the most synchronistic purchases ever as two years prior I saw Anat and her booth in person at our local renaissance fair and I LOVED her work; all hammered yellow gold like lost ancient relics with yummy little gemstones but alas they were out of reach then pricewise but I never forgot about her work and I always wished that I had remembered her name. So having a piece, is amazing let alone one that I would have chosen my self from her shop. (:
Just riding that emerald wave
Lovely spinel and gorgeous nails.
I already have the spinel. I keep the box in my purse so I can look at it at work from time to time, or if I'm waiting at a Costco gas line. The top picture represents what I see most of the time. Sparkly and bright even indoors at night. The bottom picture shows you the inclusions. I was able to buy this at a reasonable price because of that surface-reaching inclusion. However, because it is not at the girdle, I think/hope the inclusion will not be an issue when setting the spinel. Note that the pictures are the vendor pictures; because I'm lazy, I can only muster the will to grab the camera on the weekends.
