Today I have been working with the aquamarines that I bought a week ago. This ring is pretty finished (apart from the case of the missing burnisher! - I am sure I spend a disproportionate amount of time looking for things). Another one is well underway. I was hoping to get three done today, but at some point I have to squash in a run, as I am marathon training right now.
They offer unique difficulties for photography. Normally I diffuse direct sunlight, but here the stones then look dull, and it is the amazing colour of them that I want to show off.
