Easter wedding ring, handmade in 14K rose gold with a trillion diamond

This ring is probably the most insane ring I’ve carved yet—and I mean that in the best way possible. It is in rose gold with a D/VS2 trillion-cut diamond. I made it last year and I can’t believe I forgot to post it already; just had the draft sitting in my box all ready to go..

Hand-carved crowned Pear diamond solitaire with man and woman figures; dragon scale wedding band

I love seeing the photos my customers send me! Even if it does drive home the fact that my backgrounds are awfully boring 🙂 This photo was just sent to me of the Crowned Pear/Man & Woman solitaire with the new Dragon Scale band, which I was so happy to see since I made them and shipped them at different times, so never got a together-photo myself.

20K gold solitaire hand-carved with Japanese peach blossoms and honeybees

This solitaire is off the rails, set with a giant gorgeous 12x9mm Old Mine Cut glitter-bomb of a moissanite.

20K gold solitaire hand-carved with Japanese peach blossoms and honeybees

The design is Japanese peach blossoms with a couple little honeybees scattered here and there. We wanted to keep the setting as open as possible, yet have the solitaire frame be substantial enough to securely hold such a large stone. A strong, delicate type, let’s say.

seahorse + cortez mabe ring

18K Custom hand-carved seahorses ring with mabe Cortez Pearl & ruby

This ring was such a joy to carve! This ring began as a design doodle that I never got around to really bringing to reality. Then I had thee perfect opportunity when a client brought me this gorgeous mabe pearl from the Sea of Cortez, and a juicy ruby to boot. And, she said, she would like to design something with seahorses! It was a perfect set-up for this ring and I think it turned out magnificently.

swirled, crepe-y carved pearl drop pendant

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019

This pendant was inspired in part by Fujikasa Satoko’s sculpture. She makes these blindingly gorgeous flowing sculptures reminiscent of billowing silk, crepe-y poppy leaves, Loie Fuller’s dress dance..

The pearl is super smooth Tahitian with a cool greenish-pistachio color and lots of rainbow-y overtones. More images after the click:

Hand-carved Rococo Leaves Emerald Solitaire in 18K gold

This is my new favorite shop design. YES: I have this design available in my shop as a customizable design—you may choose your stone and metal.

Hand-carved Rococo Leaves Emerald Solitaire in 18K gold

The one shown in these photos is 18K gold with a 4.6mm emerald of exceptional quality. I wore this ring for two days straight until I sold it. I think I need to make myself another one 🙂 Two days was not enough. Seriously, I am so psyched about this ring!

Pear diamond solitaire: Hand-carved poppy & fritillaria flowers

This ring is heavy on the awesome. The diamond came from an old family ring, and I carved it a new home: A poppy on one side & fritillaria blooms on the other, curling leaves and stems and openwork down the sides. It turned out great!
