well, i did it. it took me a lot of figuring and finagling, but i got it. i am so very pleased with how it turned out. it has the most lovely feel to it, so solid, but lightweight.
in my opinion, this setting was the perfect way to show off this incredible stone.
it is such an alluring piece, a study in contrasts. geometric but organic; large, but not weighty; faceted on top and smooth around the edges; modern, but so graceful.
you will not believe this stone until you see it in person!
for some reason, i will always connect prehnite with the desiderata, so this one has my favorite "be gentle with yourself" on the back.
i also finished the "the wings we lack" bracelet, similar in design to the "lioness"
also, we gave the girls late naps so that they could stay up late and go see some music with us last night.
