This is going to be my last post on this page, as I have begun a photo blog on Instagram to share my studio happenings. Please follow me there at KellyLimbergJewelry.

For my last post here I wanted to share a recent topaz & silver ring, which has become one of my favorite pieces made to date.  The ring started on paper with a to scale rendering of the design.

After the design was finalized, the work began. The first step was to create the bezel, which actually starts as a simple cone.

The next step was to cut and file out all the detail of the bezel. And once that was completed I had to create the split band to fit exactly around the bezel.

And with some soldering, patience and careful fitting the band came together.

A seat was then carved for the stone and the prongs shaped, and then finally the stone was set and the piece polished up.
