Thanks, Jim

There are specific gem routers with various bits for hitting inside curves of cabs or cuttting channels. Mine is an Inland I got for 20 bucks at a flea market.

Colour treated green and blue diamonds, with white diamonds, moonstone and green tourmaline in 18kt gold and sterling silver. This was so much fun to make :)

Very cool metal work, like the stone mix as well.

When I'm not dealing with gemology students or faculty, I enjoy the occasional woodworking project. Recently one of the instructors came to me with a pretty unusual idea to make a ring out of wood into the shape of an ice cream cone using a small Hessonite Garnet cab that she owned as the cherry on top. Always willing to tackle something fun, this is what I came up with.

It may not look like it, but there are 10 separate pieces including the stone. The woods used are padauk, maple and cocobolo with a 14ky bezel.

Well, since you didn't seem to hate them, I'll throw a few more jewelry related wood projects in here for fun :)

Please forgive the photography, these are all taken with my phone for my own records as I don't sell or promote these, they are just made for friends or family as a hobby.

These are beyond fabulous.
What sort of cut is the colorless stone which appears to have pentagonal symmetry?

On this page, about halfway down you can find a pic and description of the stone from the cutter Bobsiv. He calls it an apex crown design:

Wow - after a flurry of nice pieces posted, it has gotten a little quiet around here!

This is what my day job has kept me up to...

First, someone's 25 year old nugget wedding band we remade - probably weighs twice what the original did.

Did I mention I hate soldering nuggets?

Here is a recent project for a hospital charity event we participate in each year - 35th (emerald) anniversary for this event, so we used their logo with an emerald.

14K, 5 mm Columbian emerald, and 32 ideal cut diamonds.

One guy at the event bought $3,000 in raffle tickets for the pendant - and still didn't win!
