I didn't get to play with my new camera today. I had a couple of orders to make, then I started on a custom ring for a customer.
I DO NOT want to make this ring! She sent me her original engagement ring to have the marquise diamond taken out and put on a sterling silver square ring. The diamond is 1/2" long and 1/4" wide!!! When I got the ring in the mail, I emailed her and asked her not to do it. I could size the ring up a half size and make it fit better. She thought about it a couple of days and then told me to go ahead and make the new ring.
I worked on it this afternoon and got the band made and the gallery bezel wire cut and shaped. It came another storm, with tornado warnings, for the second night in a row, so I came in from the shop. I'll work on it tomorrow, and when I finish it, I'll take pics. I just pray that it turns out like I want and that she likes it. This one may take a little while to get just right!
