I have the most wonderful gem guy from Hobe Sound, FL ...he came by our booth in Sarasota this past weekend and dropped off a few of my favorite stones which include Citrine as well as Aquamarine, pear shaped Blue Topaz and a trillion cut Garnet .
I have already started sculpting with these and I'll post the results later today.
If you are interested in a one-of-a-kind design using any of these stones,
please email me.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of making rings...I love rings.
Once I added my first stone to my leafy rings I was hooked for life and now I've added little flowers and buds to make the design more interesting. I love a ring that can keep your attention for at least 5 minutes and this was does the trick. You have leaves that intertwine between each other. On one side you have a bud ready to open and on the other side you have an open flower with a 5mm Almandine Garnet.
On this particular ring I decided to braid the band which was perfect for sculpting my tiny leaves on each side as if they were little vines.
This ring has a 10mm x 8mm Swiss Blue Topaz plus a 5mm Almantine Garnet inside the flower. I have choosen stones such as Amythyst, Citrine, Almandine Garnet, Blue Topaz as well as Peridot...which is one of my favorite stones. I will always add a complimentary stone to go with the larger stones unless a client request their favorite stones to be added instead.
I have just finished making a matching one-of-a-kind pendant, as well as a beautiful bracelet with 4 large stones, 4 flowers and buds.
This Ring is a limited edition, only a small number will be made. Overall width of the ring is 20mm x 25mm
Ring can be re-sized.
Retail Cost $245
