I'm working some more with square shapes. I like the cushion shape of these new cabochons- faceted carnelian and some smaller smooth aqua chalcedony. I oxidized the setting on the chalcedony ring to help emphasize this shape. I love the orange color of the carnelian, very bright, but still reddish (like Etsy's logo) and the calming aqua (not too bright) of the chalcedony. I'm also making some birthstone rings, inspired by the Etsy Metal August Challenge- peridot. My new favorite hammered pattern, a texture made of fine ridges, is combined with 5mm round faceted gemstones in these small rings. The ring shown is not peridot, but oro verde citrine, a yellow-green, also one of my favorite colors.
