New Stones

I have been working really hard over the last couple weeks trying to get my shop ready, my studying organized and my packing started!

My husband got a great job offer in another city so we are moving to Ottawa in less than 2 months.

Here is a sneak peak of some of the few stones coming in! Lots of new jewelry will be in the making…I just hope I can get everything up before I have to move!

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.

New Stock – Rose Cut Diamonds

Latest Stock 🙂 Some beautiful new rose cuts in very generous sizes. These stones will make stunning engagement rings.

Only available for custom work, please contact me for a quote.

More stock arriving including a round bright orange rose cut (1.68 carats), I cannot wait to see how this will look once set! I am also locating some natural black rose cut diamonds through my supplier, just waiting to see what he has available. I am into pear and oval shapes these days……..

Rose Cut Sapphires and More!

Here is a lovely pic of some of the new stock I am working with! Items include rose cut sapphires, diamonds and tourmaline plus a lovely agate, dendrite and coral that I got drilled. I will be attempting to set these as pendants with sterling or gold tube rivets.

All items are available for custom orders before I list them in my shop 🙂

New Designer Discovery – Jacquie Aiche

I thought I would feature one of my newly discovered and currently most favorite jewelry designer! Jacquie Aiche is amazing! I love the use of organic and natural gemstones in her work. Very inspirational and unique.

New Diamond Slices

I had to get these two amazing slices from my friend/supplier! They are in the 7.90 mm size range and available for custom settings into rings or a pendant. Contact me for details through my etsy shop! Visit the sidebar for the link.
