Just received 3 beautiful watermelon tourmalines that are blue and pink - very special.
I wrote earlier about having commissions for very different interpretations of the forest from Tanya Huff's "The Wild Ways".
The one below is silver and clear rutilated quartz. in addition to the outside trees in the design, I also carved a forest grove behind the stone. I'd never done this kind of carving on a pendant. It worked even more beautifully then I hoped. The photo is pretty good and I think it gives a fine sense of the back carving. I'm definitely going to do another
carving behind a rutilated quartz - it's a concept I want to develop.
It's from the collection of Bayla Fine.
I just checked this for typos and it's really time for me to quit for the night.
