Good day dear doves, I've had a good time this week keeping my hands busy while my mind wanders around, let me show you what I've made...
I bought a boat load of fine amethyst, I've always loved the stone especially since it is my birthstone, I have a prong set, amethyst heart ring my husband gave me many years ago that I wore out, literally, I wore the prongs nearly off, I need to get it back out and bezel set the stone so I can wear it again. I remember the day he bought it for me, we were doing a craft show in Tempe Arizona, it was a hot and miserable show, two days, standing in the street but there was a jeweler there named Merlin :) and I really wanted that ring and I wanted to be a jeweler too, especially while packing and unpacking a volkswagen bus full of heavy pottery. The potters always despised the jewelers trotting away with a small suitcase cotaining their entire inventory.
I created the morning dove, perched on a juicy amethyst with a few aquamarine dew drops, to keep things nice and cool.
A capped, faceted, amethyst peaks out near the clasp an amethyst brio on the extender...the chain as it is now is adjustable from 18 to 20 inches, it can be shortened per your request if it's too long.
I thought I'd marry the amethyst with a few gorgeous turquoise blossoms. The chain can be adjusted from18 to 21 inches, it can be shortened also, it's easier to to shorten then lengthen so I gave them generous chains.
Muy bonita senorita!
If the bigger ones are lupine, well then the smaller ones should be lupina, I'm taking poetic license on this one, I like to construct my own words, why not.
I sewed the blossoms on, using silver thread....something turquoise, something new.

The band is one inch in the front.
I showed the bands on these two rings on the post before, all the jewelry on that post has been claimed but I thought you may have been curious to see how the stones looked, I didn't want to keep you in suspense, suspended. I've had studio shoppers this week.
Let me know if I can answer any of your questions, I'll be computerside this morning then off to cut my girlfriends parents hair, I feel like McGiver...Ro of all trades..
Happy day all, thanks for stopping by, Love, Ro
