Happy Colours!

I love the happy combination of green serpentine rose cut slice and hot pink lab ruby – the latter from https://www.diamondcz.co.uk 

It makes me smile every time I look at it!

Mushroom jasper choker

I bought two very different pieces of mushroom jasper – here’s the second one, set in argentium with a square profile, tear-drop chain.

Kingman Turquoise Necklace

 

I needed a summery necklace in turquoise and orange to go with a new outfit – so I opted for this lovely cabochon from the Kingman mine in Arizona – cut by Designer Cabochons here in the UK.

Both turquoise and coral are quite soft and prone to chemical attack – so I couldn’t put the finished necklace through the tumbler as I would normally to harden and polish the metal – so each link was hand hammered after all the heating and soldering operations were done.  Turquoise-and-coral-necklace
