I really like angels, although I don’t ‘believe in’ them. This cabochon blue lace agate suggested the sky, and seemed to want an angel presiding over it.

It started as a quick sketch on a block of wax.

And it the end I got this somewhat pensive angel. The head is about the size of a pea.

Here are four rings that play with the trope of the signet ring by using more than one stone. The idea is to get a play of colour and light onto the hand.These are just quick snaps with the iPhone. I’ll post better ones when I get the better camera going.

 

 

Here are some rings which I made using large shapes of lapis lazuli that I cut for the purpose. The large geometric and symbol-suggesting shapes create a striking effect on the hand. They would look good in a high-fashion environment or with jeans.
