He was completely non-plussed. Why would you buy semi-cut stones? Did I not want them faceted, polished?
Nope. I love the smooth tactile finish, the little peaks and most of all the soft, soft blue.
Usually I design, draw, finesse before I even pick up the silver.
These just evolved.
I played with the shape of the setting, the size of the hoop,the texture, the "angle of dangle", the suface finish.
The result is more organic than my usual style, a pair of summer earrings, simple, unfussy.
Hope you like them.
