amethyst&white gold ring
Nice simple design to protect the long amethyst, how long is the gem and how wide?
thank you, Howardthe stone is 19,5X3,5 millimeters
this is absolutely beautiful. I would love to be able to make something like this. I haven't been doing jewelry long enough & need to take some courses on this. Sis you make the entire ring? I am assuming you did. Could you give me some tips on where to go to learn this? I would appreciate it VERY much. Thanks, K
hi)) thank you
the ring was originally designed in 3D, then printed on a 3d printer, then cast in gold. I live in Russia, and it was difficult for me to find good jewerly-making courses, but I belive that it should be quite easy to find some cool jewerly teachers in any country besides russia)))
Thank you for that last comment about the 3D designing of the ring. That is awsome. I have tak=led to people that dsign with cadcam in wax, but that machine is very pricey. A young man that I met a year ago while he was in college designed one himself and put a video of it on his facebook. It wasn't jewelry that he did, but showed what is possable. At 74 I'm beyond starting into this area, but see the future in it. I have taken a class on autocad & also have gemcad that I use in faceting. What you are into I feel is the future in design & jewelry. Wishing you the best in the future.
Info. on how things are made is very helpful to all.
