What's cooking?

I have been a busy little bee this week and all the work has been hot hot hot, quite literally! Most of the work I have done this weekend was soldering. I was very organised last weekend doing preparations so that I could so a whole stack of soldering this weekend. I find it easier that way as I can get into a groove.

Of course what that means is next weekend I will have to do an awful lot of finishing and cleaning up - the jewellery equivalent of house work!

As well as making a pair of my bird earrings and bird pendant, which I will need stock of when my work goes into a gallery next month, I am cooking up something new.

I have a fabulous hexagonal smokey quartz, I have made a faceted ring and am now working on the setting.

Once I cut down and prepare the setting I can solder it to the ring.

Right now everything is sitting pretty high and it looks a bit crazy, but once completed this will be some serious bling!


  1. I can't wait to see how this turns out. Loving the smoky quartz.

  2. Ohhhh, can't wait to see it finished! Is it an etsy product or bling for yourself?

  3. This one will be listed on etsy, my next bling will be to complete my eternity ring, I just have to finish filing it and then have the 12 pink sapphires set.

  4. beautiful. be sure to post the finished piece!
