It's August and so hot so lets embrace the heat and design a piece worthy of this element. Some examples could be a fiery gem, flame bezel or your interpretation of the blistering sun!
We have several gorgeous firey entries this month, enjoy!
Spiny oyster shell and turquoise ring. The back plate is hand stamped with a pattern that combined with the orange stone, reminds me of the sun's rays.... this ring is available as a made to order item in my etsy shop.

I just love the color of this carnelian, reminds me of fire. I used the rolling mill to create the texture on the ring band which I thought went well with the stone because it reminds me of smoldering coal or ashes of a dying fire.
"This is a big departure from the pieces I usually make, which made it a good challenge for me !"

Sterling Flame Earrings featuring natural Carnelian teardrops. These fire earrings measure 1 inch and hang 1 1/2 inch from your piercing with oxidized/satin finish.
For September lets get weird and adventurous. Any materials you would like are open but must contain some sort of recycled/unconventional element. Our focus will be on headgear/armwear. This is your chance to be super playful and experiment!!
