Another mark off my list of things to do! I'd been wanting to make a set of these in yellow gold for quite a while and finally got them finished today! I particularly love how they look with the patina, though they look quite nice without the patina as well!
They are the reclaimed texture I've used before that is created using three different hammers, all kind of layered together to give a lovely 'granite' like texture.
You can check them out here on etsy or here on artfire.
I got my workbench all set up and using it full swing now! I love it and am so amazed at how great it makes me feel every time I sit at it!! It has definitely made me feel much more organized, even though things still look like a mess a lot of the time. Its a lot better than it was before!
Thank you to my wonderful sweetie for building it special for me :)
** oh and note the new rolling mill too!!! yipppeeeeee!!!!!!!
An extra sparkle to an earthy ring. It was at the request of a customer, but her guess at size was quite off, so now I have an extra! It was the first ring I used synthetic cast in place stones, and 2 stones at that! I was extra pleased w/ how it turned out, though I would be lying if I said I got it right on the first try. Third time's the charm was more like it!!
I got the set all finished. I'd done a set before but they were both the same width - I had yet to do a complete set! But yippee!! all done! These are without the patina. I'm half hoping they want the patina so I can add it and get photos of them with it. But its much easier to add the patina than it is to take it off.
Though they do look quite lovely just as they are! So warm and lovely and luxurious. You can see the listing here
