Lately I’ve been in a “ring making” mood. For quite a few years, I’ve built up a small collection of various gemstones in different shapes, colors , sizes and prices, and there they are, hidden from the eyes of the world. I thought this was a real shame and have decided it was high time to set them in my jewelry
As these half prescious stones stand out in their beauty, I decided that what would give them a different appearance from regular stone rings would be their band design. For this purpose I chose a carved ring which I have designed beforehand, which I cast to a number of duplicates and soldered them to the Sterling Silver backs of my stone rings.
Here is the band ring photographed on the hands of a model accompanied with two thinner bands as a set of stacking rings:
The first Stone Ring is a large Oval Lapis Lazuli stone set in a Gold bezel on the large band shown above.
The second Silver Gemstone Ring is set with a beautiful Koroit Opal stone:
The third stone ring is a Silver Carnelian Gemstone ring
I believe that adding a simple silver band to these stones would make them look good too, but I somehow felt they would be even more special if I attached them to a different kind of band. Hope you will agree with me.
The three Stone rings are OOAK (One of a Kind) rings.
Thank you so much for watching
But there are dreams which I insist must come true. And they do!
Sometimes I dream of a jewelry item I would design and produce, and then I go ahead and create it!
This bracelet is one of my dreams come true:
When I know I can imagine a jewelry design and turn it into something real , I have a feeling of accomplishment. This makes me a happy person!
