Happy choker Lies

When I make presents for friends I often just grap all materials around me and make something out of it. This time I’d just visited a stone setter who milled the square emeralds inside the pearls.

Roll a pearl around your mouth and it slowly reveals the dreams of its oyster

A school project: sawing and soldering of three square-wire same-size rings, drilled at exactly the same spot so to add 4 silver wires. I hand-drilled 1 mm holes in the seed pearls (try that!). After polishing, the silver was rhodium-dipped (like white gold) and the pearls were glued onto 1mm poles.

Big bracelet

1st Grade silver bracelet with a 3.12 carat smoky quartz set next to the polished hammered hemisphere. I forged the band (left) and frosted it with just a Scotchbride.

Me smiling at you

For my first medaillon I melted some forgotten 14 karat gold earrings (eyes) and used a small left-over piece of gold chain, made a tiny toggle clasp, and got the wee rings soldered (still swiping the sweat of my forehead :)
