I have recently bought a lot of loose faceted natural gemstones, all great clarity and color, and while I was in awe admiring them it dawned to me that I have never set stones before ( gasp! ) so I started looking up online easy stone setting methods for beginners, like me. And there it is, click on it...
Something like this looks easy and professional, of course you have to measure the stones first. I could try to make my own, perhaps I will one day, but for this price is it worth the time? And how do I place this text in the middle of the two pictures above, anyone knows?!? Ughhh....forget it. This blogging thing is Chinese to me.
And, you know how you start looking up something and end up in a totally different place? Well, this is exactly what happened today, but instead of getting trapped for hours in some useless internet black hole like I usually do, I have actually discovered very useful and inspiring stuff ( huh! ) so I have decided to put it on my blog, this way I'll see it later and use it for a change.
Perhaps I should let them know that I wrote about them..?
Another good one to get inspired from is Twistonline and they have featured one of my all time favorite jewelry designers, her name is GRAINNE MORTON
Two more jewelry designers that totally blew my mind:
|Melissa Joy Manning|
I have a huge crush on his work, so organic looking... just perfect!
What have I been working on?? Oh gosh, I thought you'd never ask lol! Well....I made a bunch of rustic components for a custom order that I totally messed up because I got sick and couldn't finish it on time, but the lady I was making them for is super awesome and understood so is all good. I'll probably list on Etsy most of them, here they are:
|these already sold! :)|
HAVE A HAPPY, INSPIRING AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!
