January is always a quiet month in our Atelier. Maybe everyone still needs to find his or her rhythm in the new year …
However, we currently have a couple of nice orders including a request of a client to look for a nice strand of Lapis Lazuli, the semi precious gemstone with the beautiful sky blue color.
It had to be absolutely the best quality Lapis, it needed to have a natural look, so not the shiny polished kind and certainly not the painted kind. Because believe it or not, since the 13th century BC imitations are made of Lapis Lazuli.
We found 3 great strands so the customer has a choice from 3 different sizes and I think we keep a strand to ourselves to make a beautiful necklace …
Another order was for a pair of wedding rings, who for a nice change are not made of gold but of titanium.
The titanium has a beautiful gray color and blends very nice with the inlaid cherry wood. More information about these rings can be found here.
We also made a new brooch inspired by our visit to a fashion show and we are working to design a pendant around a blue – green opal. Will be continued
