I really like this thread. Would love to see it get as active as the "off the dop thread"!

I'm with you on that and could put up a couple items per week, but most of my pieces are kind of commercial (plus LOTS of halos...) - I work as the designing goldsmith in a retail jewelry store.

From time to time I do make a more meaningful piece like the star garnet pendant for my wife. A couple of weeks ago I finished a nice link bracelet in 19K WG with 492 diamonds in it. But sometimes I feel showing something like that would discourage others - with less time at the bench or simpler pieces - from showing their work.

And Scott, I like your 3 pieces of art - nice detail, design, and use of texture in the finish. More!!!

Thanks for the compliments! A well thought out piece like that star garnet is always appreciated =D>. Even though I may not enjoy a lot of commercial designs like halo's, I think they always show a level of finish that should be sought after!
I don't have as much time as I would prefer to make jewelry so I can only post around 1-2 at a time. I'm almost halfway through all of my designs already!

Made this for a friend in college. The liver of sulfur wore off though #-o

Finished this last week (usually I post on the Lapidiary forum :D with the cut stones...). All the stone are synthetic sapphire (a modern twist on an old mine cut), and then the bracelet itself is sterling silver. A request from a friend, and it’s ready for delivery next week.

The sapphires are approx 10x10 and average just over 6 carats a piece (one is 5.7ct, it came out a little small :lol: ).

Thanks Barbra!

I’m working on things - everything on this site is so inspiring, in so many ways. I’m hoping to start selling a few pieces in 2018 :shock:
