Day 18—#marchmeetthemaker—Mistakes

So much of my journey with cuttlefish inclusion casting has been based on experimentation and trial and error. I have been both bitterly disappointed when an Alexandrite shattered and a Padparadscha sapphire literally turned clear through the casting process, and then extremely surprised when the bases of some ancient Roman glass bottle survived and looked great. I’m a firm believer that we learn and grow from our mistakes. Costly mistakes can be a harder pill to swallow, so I generally don’t repeat with stones that have been an epic fail😂

The two photographs show a fail (a spinel that split in half) that ended up looking great (I couldn’t have planned for a stone to spilt in half like that) and my Roman glass bottom rings. While the green glass was clearly more successful, I still very much like the look and feel of the blue glass☺️ - [ ] #jewelrystore #artisanjewelry #artisanjewellry #recycledsilver #handmadeovermassproduced #handmadeinusa #recycledgold #handmadejewelry #castnotset #castinplace #castinplacestones #cuttlefishcast #cuttlefishcasting ##sapphires #turqoisefordiamonds #goldring #silverring #handmadejewellery #futureheirloom #modernjewelry #artisanmade #jewelrylover #contemporaryjewelry #contemporaryjewelrydesigners #showmeyourrings #wabisabi #japanesejewelry #futureheirloomjewelry #jewelry-addict
