Custom mother's rings stacking sets are always such a pleasure to make because of the special meaning they have for their recipients. Plus they give me the chance to work with new materials! All gemstone rings are now available in rose gold.

Keeping myself busy through the hurricane weekend by working on custom requests (here, my gemstone rings with heavier bands). Though small, this nearly flawless natural emerald is the most gorgeous stone I've ever set. Hope everyone is dry and safe!

Rustic matte, hammered, and woodland styles are still the most popular this season, though yellow and white gold are gaining ground over last year's rose!

Get them while you can: the Arizona Colbaugh/Kingman mine is no longer cutting 4mm turquoise cabochons. This means most of my turquoise designs will soon be discontinued. :(

When searching for the perfect matched band for your engagement ring, remember that matching the bands' height, or thickness, can be just as important as matching for width. While both these bands are 1.5mm wide, they vary in height by 1mm.

Excited to be working with 950 palladium today! Here's a bar fresh off my mill (left), pictured with a bar of 14k white gold (right). Can you see the color difference? It can be hard to spot until the two are side by side.

This may be the loveliest batch of opals that I've ever set. They flash bright red in direct light, and green in dim light. They were purchased for lucky grandmothers-to-be as a surprise pregnancy announcement gift!

One of the reasons I started smithing was my difficulty finding smaller-sized rings for myself. It looks like a lot of Etsy shoppers are in the same boat! Each of today's ring orders is size 4 or under. So tiny!

Stages of silver recycling. First, I take scrap silver and melt it into a molten nugget that I pour into a mold. This forms a cylindrical bar. I pass the bar through a mill to form progressively thinner wire. The wire is then fashioned into rings.
