So recently I started working for Schubot Jewellers which is a old high end Detroit jeweller, they carry really expensive jewelry and make custom stuff for the wealthy and CEO types of the area. The jewelry is incredible. Here's a pic of a picture I took of one of my rings, this was given to my grandma by my grandpa when they first started dating. It's a Tigers Eye with a carving of a spartan head, this motif was popular for the time but mainly seen in men's rings and were usually bulky "class ring" styles. This is I guess pretty rare to have such a small stone on quite a dainty ring. Also the bumps along the gold band were made to give the illusion of diamonds in the setting, this was because really the common person could not afford diamonds during that time... Well hope you enjoy.

So theres been alot of traveling this summer, I need to post pictures of all the pretties I saw all across the country when Kevin and I drove along Route 66 to california then back through the middle of the country seeing all the pretty national parks and camping. It was wonderful...
Kevin and I have finally cleaned up our studio spaces. Here's a little picture of my desk area, I'll have to post more pictures of our little house as soon as I have all my walls painted and artwork hung, but I'm so excited that the house is finally getting organized and becoming our home.
