Original jewelry, wearable art. Tutorials, dog posts, occasional gluten free recipes and sometimes opinionated rants. In other words, a mish-mash of a blog.

I've been having great fun with all my scrap silver and the tiny crucible from Lacy Tools in Toronto. Each melt turns out so differently and this one has kind of an organic look. In "person" you can look at it and see a dolphin, flowers, leaves... one of these days I'll learn how to take a good picture of silver.
I put a 4 mm rhodolite garnet in the centre and a 2 mm lab-grown ruby on one side.
Putting the stones in the bezels, I learned something important. I either have to get a third hand and a magnifying glass or never, ever use 2 mm stones again! I still don't know if it's right-side up or upside-down.
Not sure what I'm going to use this piece for. The fun was in the making.
