Diamonds are the things to have a lot of, especially in the US, but colored stones are my passion. There are so many of them and they are all so different with different qualities and colors!! Take a look at the pictures of (almost) all of the stones in my personal collection.
This is another piece that I had made just for fun. The stone is a Trillion shaped Fire Opal with a faceted checker board style top. The stone is a brilliant orange but is translucent rather than transparent. There is very little play of color but it is still a very pretty stone.
This is a ring that a friend of mine actually gave me the idea for but I loved it so much that I decided to make it!
My second passion, behind design of course, is colored gemstones and I had so much fun last week taking pictures of some of my stones and writing about them that I thought I’d do it again (and today won’t be the last!)
