where i've been...

So, I bet you have been wondering where I have been... well, this is what has been taking up all my time...


I built the swirl filigree pearl clasp. It is insanity. Here are a few views of it...




And the back side of the clasp...


And the matching earrings...


NOW... for the specs...

-3 Strands of 10-11mm Fresh Water Cultured Pearls (the color is called Minty Silver)
-The first strand is 19 inches, the second is 22 and the third is 25
-The clasp is 30mm x 15mm
-14K white gold
-the large diamond is .85 ct VS2 I/J color Mine Cut
-the small diamonds are SI quality single cuts, each one is approximately .025 ct

The entire piece was done by me... and me alone. No casting, no outsourced stone setting... all me. And this is one of the first pieces that I have completely fabricated by hand in a very very very long time!

Seriously, the photos don't do it justice! But will get Sal to take a few photos of it on me, you need to see how this lays. I LOVE THIS PIECE!
