Just finished carving the waxes of new rings for Wiscon. Including a gorgeous large gold flecked lapis, a glowing orange sun stone and a delicate moonstone.

This is a photo of a pendant created with a Baltic amber shaped by the sea and then polished. I was lucky enough to find a very small group of these when I was in Helsinki last June. I looked through a couple of hundred stones to find them. The black amber is quite rare.

It's silver and the small stone is a black sapphire. (So dark a blue as to appear black but with a deep sparkle.)  Actual size is about 1.75" From the collection of Tracy Schmidt.
