My jewellery collection #28

24 06 2014

I’ve undertaken a little Etsy purchase experiment and it’s turned out quite well actually.

I’ve bought a rose-cut aquamarine ring; sterling silver band and yellow gold bezel.

It feels good on; it’s true to size; and I like the stone very much indeed.

Bought from here.

Remember when I supported the kickstarter campaign for moving on collective?

Today the spoils arrived … a little paper brooch by Sophie Main.

‘Conversation with Worn Object’

The lovely Katherine Bowman has today published a post in her series ‘Conversations with Worn Objects‘ about the sapphire ring I commissioned from her.

Do pop on over to and read it… the questions were fabulous though surprisingly difficult to answer.
