What are you most proud of? My friend Rita sent me different cabochons for rings. This is the last cab she sent, a teardrop shaped larimar with a very high dome, 11.5x14,5x6.5mm. I'm quite proud that I really managed to finish it :), it gave me such a hard time :). I didn't know what to do with it, tried lots of different designs, had problems design-wise, execution-wise and with fingers all thumbs; I felt like a complete beginner sometimes. Finally I ended up using a RAW bezel again. The concept how to build the ring was inspired by Mary Tucker's beautiful ?Marquise Rings 2?, a project she posted on her theangstyartist blog in March 2011 (http://www.theangstyartist.blogspot.de/2011/03/marquise-ring-2.html). She's such a wonderful designer!!! The ring band was inspired by Emi Kaz' Majestic Ring (tutorial available on jewelrylessons.com), and the bezel setting by Perri Jackson (Shaktipaj Designs).
