Now the prep work is done-time to get down to the sparkly details! Part of my inspiration for this ring(besides Ice and Snow) is to create the feeling of a vintage jewel that is a bit off center, or imperfect; like it lives in its own little world just next to the one we are familiar with. When I carved the wax model to cast this ring I created settings-not quite in alignment with each other-for eight 1.5-1.7mm stones. But after I was finished setting the eight I thought it needed a few more! Now there are five extra grey diamonds around the outer edge of the ice crystals-I just couldn't help myself! What do you think...enough diamonds or do you see room for more?
