After many years, The Gift Itself got a paint job! We kept with the original look and hues, just went a little deeper. We got the signs down, ground them a little so they shined bright again, re-wired them back together and back on the wall. Nothing quite like new paint on an old building~~*
I'd like to share some photos of a super cool ring I got to carve for a lovely lady. It's made using a number of her old gold jewelry and her stones. She really wanted to have a ring that looked like a rose. She brought in a number of pictures of jewelry that she liked and from those images I drew up a couple designs for her to choose from that are completely unique and one of a kind. After she picked out the design, based on the drawing, I started carving a wax from that drawing. After the wax was carved, which is basically the mold I use to cast the finished ring from, she came in and tried it on, made sure the design was just what she wanted before casting and with her approval, I could move onto making that wax rose ring, into a gold rose ring. When all was said and done, there are 10 of her stones encompassed in this ring, 1 larger center stone and 9 very small accenting gems that look a lot like drops of water or dew on a flower. I'm very happy with it and better yet, she loved it which is all I can ask for ~~**
