Last Jewelry Project of 2011...
One of my favorite patterns was a pair of vintage sugar cube tongs that was made to look like bird claws. I made it into a spoon ring and got surprisingly low feedback in our etsy store, so I decided to spice it up.
I happened to have an old sapphire my grandmother had as a loose gem for years. It was practically begging to be used for a project like this. Passed it on to my best friend, and I hope she passes it down to her children someday.
