Rose Cut Diamond Stacking Rings

Finished some of the stacking rings last night and listed them on etsy! Some of the bezels were damaged so I will have to repair them. I love the look of all the rings stacked together and surprisingly they feel very light and are comfortable to wear!

Lots of Stacking Rings

I spent literally the whole day creating many bezels, rings and settings. It was a great learning experience for me especially since I am self taught. I really want to learn how to set tiny stones both round and non round! One project I failed today was soldering the rose gold filled bands. I will be re-attempting that tomorrow!!

New Stuff

I got some great gemstones and am dying to try set them! These tiny¬† sapphires are full of color and shine. Since the sizes are slightly off I tried ready made bezels and they do not all fit….I am thinking that I need to work on making my own bezels for tiny stones from scratch. I think the practice will pay off since I can then start using some more oddly shaped stones!

The gold filled hoops were an experimental piece. I am trying to find some 19 gauge wire to use instead of 18 since its too light to forge into hoops.

Rose Cut Diamonds

I love wearing rings in slim stacks, both plain and with gemstones. I am working on improving my skills at soldering slim rings out of gold filled and sterling silver wire. I am trying many different combinations of styles to come up with something unique. This week I am finishing up the cabochon stack rings and next week I get to work with some gorgeous rose cut diamonds I am getting from India! They will be in various sizes and shapes…I will share some pictures of the goods with you!
