Rings

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.

The result:

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:

I think that this band in filigree setting will also look good with semi precious gemstones 🙂

The Locket

I have always been drawn to different kinds of locket necklaces so whenever I chance upon a nice locket pendant, I always try to incorporate it in my collection.

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.
