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:

Gold filled lockets are hard to find and solid gold lockets do not carry the particular design I want. These new set of lockets I currently have in store are made from high quality brass. Now the question is, how to clean brass. I simply soak them in lemon water: I squeeze half a lemon in a small glass of water. I leave them soaking for about 30 minutes then use a nice soft brush to gently scrub. The natural acids of the lemon help make the brass shine like brand new!
With these new lockets I added flat-backed Swarovski crystals.
They hang from 14k gold filled chain and fall just below the collarbone.
Simple. Clean. Chic. A great combination for jewelry you want to wear everyday.
