so today i made my very first white gold wedding band. i am delighted with how it turned out! i always have people contacting me, asking me if i can do my "custom rustic wedding band" in gold. up until now, i have always told them no. but i finally got the courage to go ahead and try one. i was amazed at how much it was like working with silver. it was little tougher to manipulate than silver, and it took a little longer for the solder to flow, but otherwise, it was very similar.
stamped on the inside and oxidized, just like the silver ones
a teeny bit (.5 mm) thinner to keep the cost down a bit
same hammered, matte surface
silver on the left, white gold on the right
i also made the "daydreaming" necklace. this stone brings to mind a beautiful summer afternoon, lying in the grass, watching the clouds, daydreaming and dozing and lost in revery...
it features a terrifically stunning piece of larimar. larimar is a pretty rare (and pretty expensive) stone found only in the dominican republic. its' beauty is simply indescribable.
with larimar and moonstone teardrop sidekicks.
