Eudialyte and Sterling Silver Cuff Bangle

Eudialyte Cuff Bangle

Vera came to my workshop and browsed through my gemstone collection, choosing two eudialyte stones for me to create with – one for her, and one for her partner.

This cuff is for Vera. She wanted some subtle detail if I thought it would suit the stone.

Vera was very happy with the end result, and so was I!

Eudialyte and Sterling Silver Pendant

I created this pendant for my dear friend Morgan some years ago. It was my first foray into creating schnörkels (my teachers have a German heritage, and at school that’s what are these things sometimes known as curlicues!) The gemstone is a piece of eudialyte from North Russia.

Looking back at it, I can see many imperfections. I think we’re all hypercritical of our own work, but this one in particular is very homemade to me. However, Morgan claims to love it still, and imperfections are all part of the learning curve, after all!!

I wonder if everyone looks back on their earlier work with a certain amount of cringeworthiness.  Authors, actors, artists, musicians – we’re all putting ourselves out there in some way! Still, I created this with my own two hands (and some metal and stone 🙂 ), and that must be something to be proud of.
