Another sneak peak at the final touches on the one of a kind earrings! So many steps, skills, and details are put into each of our pieces to create one of a kind statement-making pieces!
Above: Kristen paints the silver with a patina to add contrast with the yellow gold and to the design and to highlight the beautiful lavender flashes in the moonstones.
Below: Kristen uses her flex shaft with a burr attachment to remove metal from the inside of the gold caps. This creates a snug fit for the large faceted quartz drops.
Below: Checking the fit of the quartz into the 18k yellow gold caps. Ignore the beat up manicure and take in the beauty of these gorgeous materials!
Below: Stones are ready to set! Afterwards, the patina edges will be cleaned up, and every surface will be inspected and perfected!
