New Rectangular Cabs for Wire Wrapped Rings

Well, here I go again - posting three times in one day... now you can plan on not hearing from me for ages (actually that's probably true since I'm going out of town this week). Anyhoo - I have to show off some new rectangular cabochons that I bought to make more of this style of wire wrapped ring with. I know I've mentioned a few times how popular they have been for me, and in the past I've only done them with labradorite, but now I'm branching out! Take a look...

Charoite, which I've never worked with before - it's so pretty!

More labradorite, always a favorite

Rainbow Moonstone

Turquoise with lots of dark matrix - just how I like it!

Vasonite!!! Can you believe it? I was shocked to find these; vasonite is so rare, and I love it so much I have a feeling one of these is going to become a ring for me.

Let me know if you'd like to commission a ring from any of these gorgeous cabs. I really prefer to make them as custom orders so the sizes are right and you can pick out your own stone. I have another order in with a new supplier for some more rectangular cabs in Peruvian blue opal, pink opal, denim lapis, and rhodochrosite, and I'll be sure to post pictures again when those arrive.

Here's a picture of a finished ring:

Or if you're the crafty type yourself, you can find a tutorial for making this style of ring on Eni Oken's jewelry site.

PS - we gave Carlos a mohawk again tonight. Stay tuned for pictures...

Oooh, ooooh, oohhhh! I want the purple and black one. In a size 10 or maybe 9.5, depending on how thick the wire is in the back. How much? Email me!

The charoite is beautiful, so unique! Can't wait to see the latest mohawk, what an awesome mom you are!
