oh, sweet amethyst!
the color of aster, rainbows, magic, and mystery
a healing stone.
What a beaut! The first of its kind! A gorgeous piece of amethyst sits in my raw copper and recycled silver mixed-metal signature ring. Always refining and trying new things, I cut a section out of a band this time and soldered the exposed ends to the outside of the bezel, allowing for an open-back setting to let the magic through! The amethyst was hand-cut from faceted rough by an Oregon-based lapidary artist and is truly a gem. Translucent to transparent, the stone has excellent color and some interesting patterning. The whole piece was given an oxidized + brushed finish and the copper around the stone will darken with time. Will fit like a 6 1/2.
