Depending on what else is going on in my life, this may mean that I may not get to my workshop at all for a while. But on a good week, I might get as much 12 hours.
In the past couple of weeks, I've gotten some gorgeous stones which have inspired me to create new pieces of jewelry - but I've been so intent on working on them that I didn't want to use my spare time to take photos! So I have a lot of new jewelry to photograph and list in my shop.
Today I finished this new ring and decided it was time to take some photos!
The stone in this ring is a black lace agate. Nature created a perfect miniature landscape within this wonderful stone.
The agate has an image of autumn reeds in the foreground bordering a flowing stream. In the background clouds float in the late-evening sky. A full moon peeking behind the clouds illuminates the scene
To complement the flora of the stone, hand-cut leaves are asymmetrically positioned on the setting and the motif is continued in the band.
A signature dragonfly can be found on the back.
More photos of this, my latest ring, are found here.
