An interesting spin on Custom Wednesday....

Update: the ring has been claimed!!

Well, there are two custom orders that I finished in a state of bliss today.

I love when these days happen: all design elements flow into each other and the previous day's work still stood proud under scrutiny.

I am super excited to show these pieces to their beloved owners!!!


I also wanted to show you guys something: a new twist on Custom Wednesday as I don't really have time to introduce a new set of stones to you this week:
I have made a ring top with the stone gently resting on the bezel so you can get the idea of what it would look like set - I know some of you mentioned this would be a really beneficial thing to see: a completed project sans a few details - like in this case, a ring band and the oxidizing and brushing I prefer for finishing pieces.

The design is a take on fifties Mod, with squares and lighthearted granules and all manner of symmetry and angles.

The stone is a pristine cut of Queensland Agate in a color I can only begin to describe as Orange Juice.
It feels nourishing and humorous in your hand and glows with its own agate-y inner light - just delicious!!

Whoever writes first with interest and a ring size will be its proper owner!!

Have the happiest evening and know if you were right here I would offer you some good Vanilla Rooibos tea and some earnest conversation!!

OOH- I am a huge fan of mid century modern, I love Eames and danish modern furniture. That ring speaks to me- I haven't seen anything like it. Very cool.

Beautiful customs--those lucky recipients will be very happy!

I'm really intrigued by the orange stone and the squarish setting. Very pretty and unusual.

If I were there I would offer you the blueberry muffins I baked today!
