About this design:

Still working on my prong skills. I oxidized the silver to give a bit of a contrast with the dark purple amethyst stones. I call my camera The Third Eye, because it catches small things I might miss seeing in pieces. I noticed I have some more smoothing to do to the left earring. There are some tool marks the camera spotted!

Components:

Amethyst and Aquamarine, sterling silver 18 gauge

    These are both so pretty. I love your idea of the third eye. I cannot tell you how many times I have to delete pictures because of what they picked up!

    I really appreciate the look of your bezel & prongs. They’re clean, nicely finished, and still have an elegant handmade appeal. Now I’m looking forward to seeing more!
    I’ve never had the calm or patience to do metal work (odd, since I can string a gazillion tiny beads without a problem). I tried; I even went to the Revere Academy for a couple of classes decades ago; nope. So I really admire what you’re doing!!

    Thanks for your kind comments, everyone!

    To R Benoit…Isn’t is great that jewelry making has so many niches to accommodate all our skills and aptitudes? Me…I could never have the dexterity or patience to make the beautiful intricate bead weaving pieces. That would drive me nuts! Give me some metal, a hammer, and a torch.
