First Projects with New Stones from Tucson
I couldn't wait to create some new things from my new collection of cabs bought at Tucson:
I bought a few heart-shaped turquoise cabs (just in time for Valentines' Day...) and set one into a ring with rope trim (took forever to form perfectly around the heart) and flexible mesh band. I love all the texture.
I used half-round trim around the edges of these earrings. I like them but I wish I'd gotten the trim a bit tighter to the bezel. Off to start my next project....
