Exciting News

I am so excited!

I will be getting some diamond setting training in Feb! Its a 4 day intensive training program from my own home studio.  I will get an intro to engraving, setting stones in wax, pave, flush, gypsy cabochon, fishtail, cat’s claw etc.

After my training I hope to finally make some beautiful pave diamond slice necklaces and rings! I will most likely offer in silver until I am confident enough to work in gold.

I got some pictures from my supplier of the custom cut slices and they look AMAZING! I will send these out in the next newsletter for those on my mailing list.  More info on the tiny rose cut diamonds noted in the post below, size range is 2-4mm.

And I have some more diamonds on order! Fancy color round rose cuts,  low clarity but ‘gem’ quality in pink, yellow etc. I also have some color treated diamond slices coming in shades of blue and maybe even pink! The color treatment is unpredictable so I am not sure what the results will be….I may also get some solid black slices 🙂

My stock is on order and there are still some custom stones being sourced for color. I am aiming to have everything in hand by end of Feb.
