Yes indeedy I am working! The above is a work in progress shot. It looks huge right? It's the backside of a ring I'm working on. I haven't had the urge to sit down and really work on some masterpieces until yesterday.
I call them masterpieces, but really they are just the pieces that have more work involved in building them. More pieces, more stamping, more sawing, hammering and forming. Bigger stones.
I have a stone hoard like I just can't believe. So many beautiful stones. I am making a concentrated effort to build them homes and present them to the world.
I find that I can really only work on two pieces at a time. I work on one, usually until it needs to go to the pickle pot. And then start in on the other. Back and forth until they are both complete. I am always in awe of artists who can kick out multiple gorgeous designs in a weeks time.
Anywho, I am working with a gorgeous Tiffany Stone which will become a ring, and another gorgeous stone Agua Nueva Agate that will be a necklace with a beaded Garnet chain. The colors in each call to mind Fall.
I'll be back soon!
