  • Stingray commented on the Design “Tree of life sun catcher”   1 day, 12 hours ago

    I love how you handeled the frame and made it unique.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Brass and funky pearls”   1 day, 22 hours ago

    Though, they could also be baroque pearls.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Lua Wai Necklace”   1 day, 22 hours ago

    For some reason I keep thinking magma-waterfall. Excellent delivery of a graduated chain-drop. Those stones are great together.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Brass and funky pearls”   1 day, 22 hours ago

    If they are flat with a blob on one end they are called blister pearls; rectangular-ish and even would be biwa pearls(these are only what I have heard most sellers call them over the years).
    Interesting necklace, I love the heavy brass chain with the deep maroon of the pearl.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Starlet Earrings”   1 day, 22 hours ago

    Beautiful.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Scraps Again?”   4 days, 6 hours ago

    I think it looks great. It would look cool with some spiral drops on the bottom but it looks wonderful just as is, too.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Festival”   5 days, 4 hours ago

    A very interesting design, and your bead choice is an excellant match to the pendant.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Pharaoh’s Jewels”   5 days, 12 hours ago

    Somehow I missed this before. Cool design and an excellant choice of metals; it definitely looks Egyptian.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “California Poppies”   6 days, 14 hours ago

    Wow, that took some patience. Very nice.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Black Lip Cameo Necklace”   1 week, 1 day ago

    The cord-wrapped one is wonderfully innovative. At first, I thought it was wire-wrapped; this is a great idea for people with extreme metal allergies.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Using my stash”   1 week, 1 day ago

    I love the snowy owl heart-shaped one. I am really drawn to the flower and town ones, too.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Rustic Feather Set”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Excellent. I love the earth and sky colors and they go great with the feather. Are those jumprings instead of a crimp cover on the ring side of the bracelet? Very clever. The whole set pulls together so nicely.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Cactus Flower Necklace”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Great color combo and I love how you used the rose qtz rondelle.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Fire and ice”   2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Beautiful. I like the swoops/waves on the side. You remove soldered sterling from a pickling bath with copper tongs for the same reason(though I’ve never soldered sterling). Also, I don’t think it would work on such detail, but I use ketchup to clean deeply tarnished copper: put it on, wait, wipe off, rinse and dry.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Orange sardonyx”   3 weeks ago

    The herringbone wrap makes a nice frame and the varied guages add a layer of interest. I’m also looking forward to see what you do for the necklace part.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “A Nod to the Earth and Moon”   3 weeks ago

    I can definitely see the analogy here. I love the way your ‘clasp’ doubles as the focal. Another stone that looks like Earth is azurite-malachite(it does occur naturally but most beads are assembled)

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Broke Down Heart”   3 weeks ago

    That mini-duo slide bead is really cool. How big is it?

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Netted Necklace with Three Stones”   3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I see this and I think old-fashion candy store or picnic. So bright and cheery.

  • Stingray commented on the Design “Orange and Green”   3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I am not always a fan of ceramics but this one is great. Excellent designs with them, too.

  • Stingray commented on the Fresh Pick “Ammonite Kaleidescope”   3 weeks, 2 days ago

    I usually only do earth-tones with ammonites but these blues and greens you chose are an excellent match for adding a splash of color. I will definately have to try something like this.
