Spheres

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.

The result:

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.

Emerald Lane

I’ve mentioned before that I started with ornate headbands.  I have moved on to other items now but my love for making these works of art has not changed.  While I love making these beauties, the cost, time and materials makes me create them only if requested. 

Last weekend I received a message about a soon to be bride wanting to buy my ornate emerald headband.  Remember that these are custom pieces, thus, those in my store are there for illustration purposes. This means that once an order is placed, that is the time I will only make them.

Behold Angela’s headband!  Made from mother of pearl flowers, jade and adventurine nuggets, majorica pearls and Austrian crystal.  All of these are wire wrapped in high quality stainless steel wire.

I’d love to make one for you too, on your special day 🙂

The color for 2010: Turquoise

I have always been fascinated with this gemstone and if I remember correctly, it was the first gemstone I ever worked with!

The ancient Egyptians used turquoise in jewelry. It’s color ranges from greenish-blue or pale sky blue. The name means “Turkish stone” as it came to Europe by way of Turkey. Turquoise was mined more than 6,000 years ago in Sinai and is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it.  It takes on the characteristics of the owner.

The baghag, one of my daily blog reads, said that turquoise is the color for 2010.  And thus, in honor of this beautiful stone, I’d like to share with you a few creations.  Enjoy!
