Now that things are settling down a bit (very little bit) I've had some time to slow down (on weekends at least) and appreciate things a little more. I still have an overwhelming interest in art and artistic jewelry.
MB and VC are headed to a wedding while I'll be here finishing up my internship and its accompanying project. Knowing that I still had some artsy connections he asked about getting a ring with his family crest re-sized to fit VC so that he could wear it to the wedding.
Luckily I remembered that we have a local jeweler who is an incredibly skilled artist/craftsman, so he brought the ring there to be re-sized.
It is a good connection to have since I recently was presented a stunning Prasiolite gemstone from moregems.com. Custom Jewelry can make an incredibly unique statement. I can't wait to have the gem set into a ring or pendant setting of my own design. It is unfortunate that Mother's Day has passed since the gem would be lovely for Mothers Pendants.
It will be fun to get the right side of my brain working again - in designing a funky setting :)
Full Disclosure: I received a gem for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was provided.
