Fresh from the Studio

Johnny’s been logging many hours at the bench these past couple weeks.  He started a new series using a combination of steel and yellow gold, which he used for the earrings in the photos above.  The gold ring in the center photo is one of my all-time faves.  The textural nugget was made using a left over sprue button from a previous casting.  I love the way it looks when stacked with a diamond: the organic quality really takes off when next to a tightly crafted set stone (conflict-free, of course).  

Another new addition are the wax bezels Johnny has been milling with his new-old lathe.  These thicker, more substance filled stone holders are completely custom and uniquely built for each stone.  Expect to see a handful of new rings sporting these one of a kind bezels soon!
