October Collection 2022

October Collection 2022

- New for October -

I continued last month’s theme of warmer tones into October’s new pieces. This month’s collection includes many orange and red tones. There are a wide variety of stones in these latest pieces. The stones featured are garnet, peach moonstone, brecciated jasper, plume agate, orange kyanite, sunstone, and pietersite. Rarely do I have a collection without any rainbow moonstone or labradorite (two of my favorites), so I included one warmer toned ring that features both of these stones. You’ll find a few one-of-a-kind statement pieces, several limited edition gemstone pieces, and a few versatile made-to-order designs this month.

If you would like to learn more about how these pieces were made, keep reading below.

One-of-a-kind, limited edition, and made-to-order pieces will be available in the shop starting October 3rd.

Behind the Scenes

Here are a few photos which show some of the latest pieces while they were in progress.

In this photo I have sketched an outline to guide me while cutting the backplate for these bezels. I often draw patterns on sticky paper which I adhere to a sheet of sterling silver. I then use my jeweler’s saw to cut the outline.

Here I am wrapping lots of tiny garnet beads in sterling silver wire. This will become a chain for the plume agate necklace in this month’s collection.

I have just cut a teardrop out of the larger petal shape. I will then file the edges, hammer the top, and then slightly dome its surface. This will become the pendant for a new necklace design.

Here I have just soldered brass granules onto these silver earrings. The brass gets covered with a thin layer of oxidation during the soldering process. I will then clean both the silver and brass in an acidic solution and manually polish the surface to remove the oxidation.
