Lots of new things today, cabs and rings!

chunky sterling silver moss agate ringTake a look at one of my newest creations. This is my first chunky ring. A tree agate aka moss agate sits in my own handmade fine silver bezel. This ring was fun to make. It was nice especially because I had something of a real size to handle in my fingers. Its easy to see why some metalsmiths only like to make big pieces!

I am still learning to figure out the corners on square bezels. In some cases it appears that one would have to file down the corners so you don't get that pinched look. I did do this here. Just a tip for all you beginners. Hey any tips for me would be so kind of you, as well!

turquoise sterling silver ringOkay and here is the next new ring...bling bling! A beautiful turquoise cabochon sized at 14 x 10mm sits in my very own handmade bezel as well. I have to say..this was fun too! I really like this size for myself. It is not a huge ring, but it isn't tiny either. Really a lot of deep color and pop to this sweetheart.

Both of these rings are on sale here in my Etsy shop ...Helenes Dreams.

lavender jade cabochonOkay so I just recieved these yesterday and I do have them listed in the shop! These are beautiful lavender jade 10 mm cabochons. Just a gorgeous color. My supplier states they are dyed, but most colored jade are. They really have a royal purple to them. I can't wait to set one of these somewhere!

faceted chalcedony sea foamOkay, so I have a lot in mind with these absolutely beautiful sea foam chalcedony faceted cabochons. The lapidarist cut these very nicely. The facets are precise and catch much light, not to mention the color is mesmerizing. I can see one of these in a gorgeous sterling silver ring myself. I am going to get my "b" tank for my acetylene torch...where I can soon start to work with wider thicker sterling silver.
cherry quartz cabochonI will just post one more addition here today..not to bore you all to death! But these cherry quartz are fabulous! They measure a 10 x 8mm and have beautiful rich coloring to them. They have a peachy look to me..just pretty pretty. Yes, I can't wait to set these too! I wish I had more time.

Please vist 101 Best Beads and you can find all of these gorgeous cabochons and much more there! Thanks for taking a moment to leave a comment, to let me know you stopped by! Have a great day!
