This week I have been turning some of the lovely stones that I bought at IJL, and that I had in stock, into what I consider to be a scrummy bunch of rings. (It can be a very self indulgent thing this jewellery making. I would happily wear every one of these. But not at the same time you understand - that would just be excessive!) Anyway - the pictures are only work in progress as not one ring is polished or the stone set. I am going to give them all a high polish finish, but I must admit I am really keen on a brushed finish against these subtle blues. Some of these are whoppers, and this is the first time I have worked with a big pyramid cut stone. Jewellery makers reading this will appreciate the extra problems a square bezel can cause. I hope you like them!
