I've finally gotten a process that works for setting the leaves after casting. I love it! So pretty and sparkley. I used to shy away from anything faceted. I don't know why! This one is special for someone, but now I know I can set any kind of marquise shaped stone fairly easily! Fabricating a setting was not worth it... so now I can make it in wax and its great!
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!
