Amber, Lava, Spar and Sun stones

These are some of the lava stones that I collected in Iceland. the shiny one was reheated after it solidified. i just finished polishing a silver pendant that has a catseye sunstone and a 1.5" piece of very asteroid looking lava. Also one with a very complexly shaped piece of natural formed Baltic amber with a piece of Icelandic spar with rainbows.

And I have two silver rings with lovely blue tourmaline slices that are ready to be set.

I'm hoping to do the final work on a necklace for Tracy that's designed around two antique Thai large peacock feather carved earrings. It's set intermittently with small diamonds. The whole design is a balance of asymmetries. I've been working on it for a very long time.
