Silver and Stones and Sparkles..Oh My!

I have been busy the past week despite being sick.  In fact I made 2 silver rings with stones that I am particularly proud of.  I love making rings but it is almost impossible to make all the sizes I would need to sell.  I pondered and I pondered and then it came to me...make them adjustable...but not tacky adjustable like dollar store rings...

This is what I came up with:

The first is a beautiful African Turquoise cabochon set in a dramatic large sterling silver setting. To bring out the detail it has been given an antique patina.


......the other is a bronzite cabochon set in sterling silver bezel setting also with a beautiful patina.


Both pieces are on tapered adjustable bands

I also worked on some beaded pieces
