More snake rings: BIGGER snake rings. This ring I carved around a sweet boulder opal I just couldn’t pass up because I thought it was like looking down upon a little tropical inlet, like maybe in the Baja perhaps, specifically around hereâ€¦ I got a nice little Old European cut antique diamond to accent the piece and finished it up a couple of weeks ago! LOVE how it turned out. I was hard pressed to let it go, and honestly, if it weren’t one of my favorite clients who bought it, I may have had to keep it myself.
This is, however, a new studio piece and I can customize (different stones, change up the diamond, 14K, 18K white or yellow gold, etc.) and adjust for size. It’s now listed in my Etsy shop!
See how amazing this ring is? It makes even my ratty old studio sweatshirt look chic! (I kid.)
The other ring in this photo is my Coiled Snake Solitaireâ€”also available in the Etsy shop.

An example of another opal I have on hand, this one from Ethiopia: a very different look, but with a lot of bright flashy fire. I think this would be a cool option for this ring. Other stone options that I think would be awesome would be: turquoise (+yellow gold = yum!), chrysoprase, gem silica, blood coral, more opal!, etc.
