A really fun project on which I’ve been working much too long 🙂 But then, bezel setting faceted stones is not all that easy!

It started as a request from a good friend to fix a ring of which the garnet has fallen out. And at the same time, change it into something more modern and less glitzy! Which is, sort of, my favourite sort of assignment!

I took the ring apart and attached the rest of the gold band to a silver ring. She wanted more colour and I therefor added an amethyst and a chrome diopside cabochon.

The left over gold was melted into tiny balls and scattered between the stones. I finally decided to oxidize the silver to make the gold band and granules stand out and appear more antique yellowish.
