I've been wanting to experiment more with non-shiny finishes lately; partly because I find them more visually interesting, and partly because it's a pain in the butt to get a perfect mirror finish on everything I make! I like the way this turned out.
I'm not sure about this one. It's a beautiful, large smoky quartz cab, but something is missing... I'm going to try oxidizing it and polishing it to bring out the texture of the band and see if that helps.
Another Caribbean blue moonstone ring (rainbow moonstone over a thin layer of blue resin); this one is spoken for but I made another similar one to list in my shop.
Chrysoprase & oxidized sterling silver bracelet with chyrsoprase, labradorite, & Thai silver danglies.
...and another view of the same. Bot the earrings and bracelet above were inspired by this necklace; I just love the contrast between the blackened silver and the glowy chrysoprase.
