Aurea Gutta Aquae

Happy Holidays!
I have been hanging onto this post for quite a while now. Unfortunately, this piece was a rather special present and I couldn't just go spoiling the surprise now could I?!

I was super excited to make this piece, as I do not work with gold very often it was a good change of pace.

Not to mention having the privilege to work with such precious materials. It was quite an experience.
I will be back again with more soon.
Until next time,
Peace and Love

  1. This seriously is impressive. I really enjoy your darker, silver pieces (personally more my style), but this is downright arresting. The metalwork that crawls across the face of the gemstone adds to the stone instead of detracts.
