At times I wonder if you get my sarcasm, I think it is obvious when I am sarcastic but in case you missed it then you know now.. Though about the Bulgari necklace in the previous post I was a 100 percent sincere, its gonna happen! Nevermind that now lets see some facts about this pretty thing! Its made of yellow gold with diamonds, turquoises, amethysts and emeralds. There are also a pair of matching earrings and the whole set once belonged to Lyn Revson (whos jewellery collection was legendaaary) , wife of Charles Revson who founded Revlon... Imagien that

I realized that there are so many things I want, but very little things I would die for (material things that is, not that I wouldn't die for a cause or somethin'.. I just don't have one right now..) But these things I have listed now are things that my material ego really crave and dies a little every time it realizes the impossibility of some of these things.. And by that I don't mean the Bulgari necklace, believe it or not
I want to have worn this Bulgari necklace at least once before I die. Every second counts(!) haha
I want this necklace in more colours...
I really really want the opportunity to finish this necklace, using the
same technique as the previous necklace... It's a must before fall...
I want to learn how to carve pendants like these, and I want to own some.. ahhh greed *sigh*..

I'm sorry I realize that in the previous post I put the title, "happy easter", which really did not go with the sad Nancy Sinatra song (or the song wasn't too much of a go with the title) heh.. Anyways, just found this picture, pretty as ***l, the whole composition - I don't think I would like the necklace outside this picture... hmm..

Yes that is a brooch though you'd probably never guess that. Made it some years ago when I was bored, must have been thirtteen and my father had kicked me out of the workshop for no apparent reason other than that I was persisten in learning to handle some machine which he thought inappropriate. So I ended up outside with some silver wire, a cheap brooch platform and some crystals my mum had bought in Prague for me. Remebering my irritation and anger at the time I also recollect my suprise when I actually managed to produce something wearable...okay that is debatable, but you know what I mean...
Just discovered that Damaskos got a facebook page loaded with loads of goodies like these (from the album 18k Gold and/ or Silver Black Rings). I absolutley love this technique with granulation and decorative rings (and black silver!)

Not bad at all.
Speaking of Rings, like I did this weekend these silver and gold wire rings from Gerochristos Polemis collection are not too bad huh?
