I've been polishing all day. Working on the first group of rings for Worldcon.
white jade, kyanite, chrysocolla, and a very unusual baroque pearl with a baby pearl attached.

And I'm doing the final polishing on the Fordite commission. It's been a very good day. The designs are looking beautiful as the polishing reveals the textures and I'm looking forward to setting the stones. Even though they are my work and I have a very clear visualization of how they will look, there is still a sense of completion when the stones are set that feels really good.

Photograph is of a sterling pendant set with a stone that combines malachite,chrysocolla and lapis. It was made for Joanna Lowenstein who does exquisite delicate work in wool. I wanted a design that gave a strong sense of her work. It was something new for me to base a design on and I really liked doing it. The work really flowed in the end.
