sapphire pendant 

Fabricated Sterling and sapphire. Approximately 3/8 inches. 

This little pendant is for my granddaughter. It’s not her birthstone, but sapphire is the color of her beautiful eyes.  The bail and the three rivets holding it together are 14 karat gold. The rest is Sterling. 

garnet ring

Fabricated Sterling, 14k gold bezel, and garnet. This is one from a while ago.  I think it has a medieval vibe going.

Out of the light the stone looks black.  Now there’s a metaphor for you.

Articulated Cross


This one was a lot of fun.  It’s about 2 inches long, Sterling.  The arms of the cross are hollow with a rivet going through end-to-end.  The foot swings from it. The two images below highlight the articulation.

I’ll eventually post an “evolution” of the design, but this is the final version.


Here is a smaller variant.  It’s less than 1 and 1/2 inches long.  The nimbus is even more asymmetrical, and I left the rivet ends visible.
