As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am snowed in, however I have been able to dedicate my time completely to jewelry making, something I wish I could do all the time. Because I am just starting out on this new path, I can not yet quit my day job, still have to bring home the bread. It has been great though just spending the entire time creating and making fun jewelry, I most definitely would love to do this all the time. I had this old funky turquoise stone and have been wondering what I could make with it, and the ring design just popped into my head. That is usually how it happens, at least with me, I was working on another piece and the idea just came, I always feel so anxious that I have to make it right away, well anxious in a good way. At first I wanted to add little silver balls on the side, then I went with the flatten circles to make little towers, I thought it would balance out better with the stone because the stone itself is somewhat high. I love the way it came out it the end, will be hard to let go of it if it sells, well I hope it will.
