Look Who's Strutting Their Stuff!!!

Tons of beautiful design in our Flickr Group this week! Make sure you go over and see all of the mind blowing pieces that are being made! Also, a side note to make sure you read the rules of the group, please make sure you familiarize yourself with our Flickr Group guidelines! We'd hate to not feature beautiful work!

About this piece: I'm not quite sure where the inspiration for this piece came from. I think I had this shape at the back of my mind, probably from some building. I knew I wanted to use 3 layers, and I knew I wanted the stone to "rise" above the back layer. The rhodocrosite was a natural choice because browns and pinks are just such an elegantly beautiful combination. It's quite a large piece - 2,5 inches from top to bottom and also across at the widest point. But I love big and bold jewelry - although I'm quite short - can't imagine what I'd do it I were tall!
