I've been carving a coral reef design that will be black silver with highlights. The center is a turquoise, green and white stone that is chatoyant malachite, chrisocolla and druze grey crystal with a hollow center. The design includes a black opal fish and a blue tourmaline jelly fish. Yes there will be a photo. I promise.
And I'm working, endlessly apparently, on a leopard that's set in a botroidal moss agate cave. I think I finally have the position right. The figure is quite small, even by my standards and getting it to set comfortably has been difficult.
And I'm thinking about a delicate black silver lace and brilliant Ethiopian opal necklace.
I'm clearly in intense design mode.
