New gemstone cluster ring design in our etsy shop


We recently decided to expand our wire wrapping skills and tried our hand at a gemstone cluster ring. Vanessa did a first awesome practice ring that she let me have. I wore it to a friend's Birthday party and it was admired by several of the guests.


So today, my design partner Vanessa made another one, and I just love how it turned out (see photo above). She used an Amethyst nugget and enveloped it with clusters of fluorite, quartz, anhydrite, amethyst, and copper beads. The result is an asymmetrical, one-of-a-kind design.
This ring is available for purchase in our etsy shop. Here is a direct link: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17409788
We purchased the tutorial from a very talented jewelry designer, Cristina Amador Peters. Please check out her etsy shop: http://cabisuteria.etsy.com. If you purchase one of her tutorials, Cristina graciously grants permission to use her tutorial for making items for sale, as long as you don't make any exact copies, and give her some credit. Also check out her beautiful blog: http://cristinasjewelry.blogspot.com/. Thank you Cristina for making our creative juices flow!
