The request: A pair of dangler earrings in the shape of a leaf using garnet gemstones.
The dilemma: None.
The process: The client wanted a pair of garnet earrings. I suggested that we add more than just garnet because this gemstone has a rich wine red color.
Combining it with other gemstones in the same color family will give the piece life and vibrance. So I scoured my suppliers to see what they had and I found these:
Gorgeous gorgeous Tundra sapphires in red-orange, orange, and olive!
With this project, I needed to take my time. Remember, I do not sketch. I knew that I could only work on it during my good creative mood (read: when I feel
like it inspired) to achieve the best results.
Fast-forward to 1.4 months, this is how it came out:
As you can see I’ve attached it to peridot cubic zirconia in 14k gold bezel set ear studs.
All other gold is 14k rolled yellow gold.
