The Old and the New

Thought I'd post a couple of jewelry pictures. When looking for some gold scrap for Raven's ring, I rediscovered some stone setting practice pieces I did in school. I thought about listing the earrings for sale... but pricing would be tough! Its a 14 karat gold basket head with cz's set in them. Cz's are pretty worthless... except for stonesetting practice. I like the way they look though. Perhaps I'm just talking myself into keeping them. The ring has a peridot stone... but I fabricated the ring and the head and am not so sure I'll make another! Fabrication is fun, but I'm more of a carver of things. The Good Luck pendant is just an update on an earlier post. The liver of sulfur really helped it... plus polishing. Hope my young relative likes it.... and I'll also list one for sale in my etsy shop.

*pardon the pics! I had to hold the earrings and ring because the camera kept freaking out.

Gorgeous! So what is the difference between fabrication & carving for those of us not in the know? I love that ring!

My stuff is usually carved wax, cast into silver for a model, fixed up, molded and recast for duplicates.

Fabrication is where you mess with wire and sheets of metal for construction of the piece.

I like the ring a lot, too. Did you say that it would be going up for sale? I think it would sell right quick!
