This customer wanted a vintage look with hand engraving for this remounting of her sapphires and diamonds. I love using stones with sentimental value in new designs. It can carry on memories and stories.
I have really enjoyed learning hand engraving techniques. It has always fascinated me. I hope to continue to learn and explore this facet of jewelry making.
There are so many pieces of jewelry that I’ve made that I had not taken a picture of. Ones, sadly, that I may never see again. This one came back to visit to get cleaned and buffed up, so I took advantage and snapped a few pictures. It was nice to see her again.
This ring is so sculptural that it is hard to capture it in just one picture. It is fun to look at from every angle.
These are the days that I love my laser welder. I needed to add a diamond and sapphire to an existing pair of earrings to match an existing pendant. The laser welder made putting this together a breeze. I assembled the heads and wire gallery and set the stones before welding it in the earrings. It made clean up so much better and easier.
This is a simple, classic ring that we just made. It contains a 1/4ct bezel set high quality round brilliant cut diamond and six bead set blue sapphires. This ring was cast in super 14K white gold and features a knife edge and square shank.
