I have just started on the rectangle basket claw. There will be one top piece where the gem has to fit inside (seen on the picture), one bottom piece and the claws in the corners - and then the ring.
The Ametrine was given to me by a good friend in San Diego. She bought it to have a a piece of jewellery made one day, but I guess time flew away as it sometimes does.
So it was given to me, and I have held onto it for almost two years, not really feeling I had the skill to make something out of it.
However, a few rings later I thought it was the time now do something about it and will give it a go.
I have not made so many basket claws and it can be tricky, but hey, if it goes wrong, you can always start over again.
This ring will be heading back to my friend in San Diego once finished. I cannot wait to see what it will looks like once finished, but sure the gem is beautiful.
More pictures to follow later....
