YOJ 2008 Week 5
The theme for week four was Mardi Gras. I definitely was not on theme this week because I was busy working on a custom order. One of these pieces was my showing this time. After all, the whole idea of Year Of Jewelry is to make a new piece of jewelry each week for a season or whole year and this is brand new.
The stone is a very large Madiera Citrine that was carved into a flower form. Since I've been wanting to try a prong style setting that was open on the sides I thought this stone was perfect. While it was a real challenge I think it turned out quite good.
