I think often about the sentiment we attach to the jewelry we wear.
I am often asked how I come up with my ideas.
So now, I am feeling the urgency to get The First Piece to Done!!!
After I decided to feature the beautiful oval spessartite garnet in the First Piece, I moved on to procuring gemstones for the first three pairs of earrings.
The "First Piece" is to be a large pendant, with a floral design in an architectural style made in 18K yellow gold, inlaid American walnut, with a spessartite garnet center, rubellite tourmalines radiating out to the perimeter, and a drop component comprised of peridot and diamonds.
