Sunflower Fire Agate Ring by jessa1155 Sunflower Fire Agate Ring by jessa1155
This ring was a collaboration project~ I drew out the design, my mother did the wax carving and Mark did the lapidary work, casting, gem setting, etc..

There are a lof of incredible details on this piece that couldn't be captured in one photo. Our current journal~ [link] shows multiple views of the ring, including the carving on the inside of the band.

Thanks:) The sides, the inner edge of the shank and the inside of the band all have tons of hand carved detail.. unfortunately this photo doesn't show any of it!

You're welcome!

Little details are some of my favorite things... I still like how the main view is simple, it's very elegant :)

How's the stone set?

The wax model was carved to fit it exactly. There was a tiny bit of shrinkage with the casting and the gem was literally hammered in (fire agate is one tough gemstone) and a small amount of metal was moved to secure it even more. That baby is in there for life!! *

Thanks Elly:) There are so many great decorative details on the leaves that don't show up in this one photo. Photographing jewelry can be so tricky sometimes!

Yeah, I just can't invest the time it would need to really get into this site.And when I DO have time I'd much rather be in the studio anyway. I peek in here and there, trying to maintain a minimal presence here at least. We've had very good luck with finding new great clients online through Facebook, so I spend a bit more time there. All of my childhood/school friends are there too:)

You've done some incredible work over the last year!

Your guys should seriously be designing/creating more of these with different unique stone centers, as they really are quite striking.

Thanks! We'd like to do more~ and hopefully we will. Having a toddler to chase around all day has slowed me down considerably in the studio. Eventually preschool will start...in about 2 years?:)
