One of the designs that I most enjoy working with is mixed crystal rings. My studio is full of little crystal terminations of all types, in all sizes.
The ring will be built with the 3/8" sterling silver band of your choice. I can make it as a solid, soldered band or as a comfortably-finished adjustable band. Please see this listing for band texture choices: http://www.etsy.com/listing/58643323/textured-sterling-silver-band-custom You can also look at this listing for inspiration in crystal combinations and bezel shapes.
The bezel is the part of the ring that holds the crystals. You can choose the shape you would like your bezel to be, from teardrop shaped, to round, to squarish, or anything else you can imagine. The bezel will be built in fine and sterling silver. I can also build up an organic texture on the bezel, such as you see in the first ring. The bezel size for this listing is around 1 1/4"-1 1/2" in length. Please listing for a smaller bezeled ring: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62540839/custom-made-mixed-crystal-ring-in.
The combination of crystals can be anything you would like. The first photo here shows a pink-hued ring in rubellite tourmaline, rose quartz, opal aura quartz, and a ruby crystal. Next, there is a piece in rose quartz, smokey quartz, and clear quartz. After that, you see a ring using opal aura quartz, aqua aura quartz, and amethyst. The combinations are limitless. If you like, you can give me a colour palette to work with, and I will choose the crystals for you.
I have included links to other pieces in my collection that have the same types of crystals- please click to have a look.
