A client came to me with a box full of semi-precious stone nuggets, i.e., onyx, lapis lazuli, strawberry quartz. Apparently, the client’s pieces fell all apart and she did not know what to do with the un-strung pieces considering their various shapes. Design ideas started rambling in my head and with each idea I started getting excited. After a few days of thinking I finally decided on the design for 2 of them.
Stay tuned for the 3rd and final re-worked piece 🙂

As I’ve mentioned before, I am thinking of starting on working with rings.
That was the first and only ring I’ve made until a few weeks ago when a client requested a ring to match the set of Filigree set she was ordering. I got excited, composed myself (which took about a week), then started to work on her ring.
As you can see, the band, without the pearl attached is quite pretty by itself! Now, this I will definitely make one for me 🙂
Oh, did I mention that the client loved the Alexandrite ring that she ordered one for herself as well? Here is hers:

The request: Full nest setting. Round. Clear center.
The dilemma: Full nest setting is hard to do because of the shape especially if there’s nothing inside it. It had to be a perfect circle.
That is the reason why I love collaborating with clients. The exchange of ideas give me a certain high. Its the interchange of thoughts in the design process that keeps me energized and inspired.
