Hand-carved morning glory ring, rose gold

Hand-carved morning glory tapered band, this time a little wider than before at around 12mm width up top. It is cast into 14K rose gold and set with little purplish-pink diamond accents.

Hand-carved snake solitaire with sapphire

Hooray for more snake rings! This was a fun one: two snakes in white gold flanking a center Montana cabochon sapphire. The stone was clear with a pale lavender tinge and a flash of orange across it; very unique. Two very small 1mm diamonds are set in the eyes of the snakes. I think I need to start making larger snakes because 1mm is not my flush-setting comfort zone…

I carved in scale texture for one of the snake’s bodies and left the other smooth for contrast.
