I've been working on a complicated design problem for a while. It's a ring with a asymmetrical hyalite triangle and a long narrow brilliant opal with a lot of red flash. Hyalite is a form of opal with a glassy and clear appearance. This one is white and shot with brilliant lights.
The shapes are not naturally compatible and so the design difficulty. But I've solved it with a ring design that creates a balance and harmony with the two stunning stones. I still need to do a fair amount of work and carved textures on it but the essential design problem is solved.
Pendant is sterling "world" with a blue chalcedony satelite crossing it. From the collectionof River Curtis-Stanley.
I'm ging back to carving.
