Look at what I made!

27 Jun

Look!  I’m quite pleased.  4.18 ct pyrope-almandine garnet in a handforged, granulated 18k setting.  Sometimes a photograph spotlights tiny trouble spots better than one’s own eye can, and from this photo I see that the inner edge of the bezel needs burnishing a bit.  I’ll do that tomorrow.

Today, I ALSO made an emerald ring. I’ll shoot that and post images tomorrow.

I love working with higher karat gold, and if I weren’t so tired from making pretty things all day then I would tell you why.

    I am such a huge fan of granulation and filigree, beautiful granulation and lovely stone!

    Absolutely gorgeous! So glad to hear you are up and running again. I still treasure the beautiful garnet ring you made for me a few years ago.
