First of the series is always a splendid child: it is the realization of sleepless daydreaming and the squeeze on your shoulders from all your training and striving:
you did it!!
Yesterday evening as I burnished the fine silver bezel round and round and round the dual-tone enamel volcano cone I beamed.
This is what I dreamt-
this color on top of color
the kind that makes you feel better just from looking at it-
verdant greens cradling peach moonstone
atop a shield of copper
in whose nooks sterling granules dance...
It is at once primal and modern
organic and architectural
luminous and patinated
with gritty heat-coloration patterns mixed in to the copper's warm sweetness.
When I tell you that the green sings, you must understand that it's not some simple melody:
it's an aria.
This ring is a size 8.5
and truly one-of-a-kind
