Well, I have been busy and kinda waiting on some "interesting" comments to pop here. I do my own lapidary work, faceting, and casting. Lately I have been exploring some new ideas. I have been using my Cricut (the scrapbooking paper cutting machine) to design and create jewelry models. Layering the cutouts to create a 3D prototype that I often dip in jewelers carving wax to add more complexity and details, and then casting them in Delft Clay. It has really worked out nice. I have made rings and pendants in silver and pewter using this method. Here is a link to some of my Cricuted designs. http://www.daniellcraftsandgems.com/Cricut.html
Let me know what you think.
