The Curious Allurance of Ice
There is a lot of ice and snow still pervading through the streets of Stockholm, which today inspired me to write a little bit about another kind of ice, namely the 'Ice Blue' diamond' kind. Cool, light and deliciously lovely with metal, these tiny blue diamonds capture the essence of winter.
This necklace combines the clean whiteness of the silver with a sprinkling of ice blue diamonds, and an aquamarine in an offset setting. This design has softer lines than the other jewellery in this series, and is handsawn from an original sketch.
I have one in progress at LOD just now, and I'm debating whether it will become a darker relation in oxidised silver.
