Today, I finished a sterling ring with an absolutely stunning vintage jade gemstone. It’s rectangular, faceted and feels very art deco to me. I set it in a simple bezel on a half-round sterling shank and gave it a somewhat scratchy, roughed-up finish, which I like in contrast to the smooth, milky jade.
I also made a pair of sterling drop earrings with some pretty, faceted aquamarine rondelles – my March birthstone. Can’t seem to escape the Pisces influence these days!
Really enjoying the photography aspect of my jewelry shop. It’s led me to invest in a great macro lens and a newer Canon Rebel – newer than my old original. I really love what the macro lens can do and the two in combo are the best! Have always been a shutterbug, but mostly of people until the past few years. Macro photography is a whole other world! Equally satisfying, I’d say. I’d love to hear what others have to say about this….
