I get so excited when a customer asks me to expand upon a current design - I hadn't found any marquise shaped colored stones that I could cast in place. But then again, I hadn't really looked that hard. So when asked, I went on a search and found some from a company that supplies premade wax ring and stones to cast in place. They had some fabulous colors, but I just went with the green for now as thats what was requested and it obviously makes sense as a leaf. I was ecstatic with how they turned out and particularly how the two different sizes looked together with the tree bark ring. So lovely and adds a whole new dimension. I do so like a splash of color when it works with my designs.
I'm a full time artist - mostly in jewelry but I consider myself an all around artist as I love painting, photography, ceramics, and screenprinting. My business has largely turned in to making custom wedding rings which is wonderfully meaningful. I'm also a yoga teacher!
