|Black Drusy Moon Face|
The first comment has to do with the piece pictured above. I was able to get another carved drusy face from my new German source. It's a black drusy this time and it's a bit larger than the last one. And don't get your hopes up---it's also already sold. I think I'll have to start buying more than one at a time but I am fussy about the ones I pick so I'm not sure it's possible. There definitely won't be any more of them this year unless someone wants to special order one (and even then I'm not sure there's time to get it in and made up before the holidays if that's the intent).

In the next few days I'm going to rerun my favorite holiday blog article about engagement rings as Christmas presents. I'll update it with some new pictures. Pictured immediately above is a new pendant that is out in the cases. I'm running out of these moon faces as my source retired about the same time he ran out of this quality of material. The pair of earrings in the middle of the article are also in the cases. They are 22k granulated gold. There was no solder used on the 22k gold disc (although the posts are 18k gold and are soldered onto the back). I always love the way the granulation technique leaves a nice texture that makes the earrings look really old.
