I found these awesome wooden round frames at the local thrift shop, and I'm now working on portraits of my family to fill them. I think they will look fun grouped on a wall, and my house is woefully lacking in artwork right now.
I'm really trying to incorporate other stone shapes into my repertoire, and this is my latest. I love the soft rectangular shape. The band is tapered and the stone is left open on the bottom. Working with non-round stones is more complicated, I think that is why I have been dragging my feet about it for the last few years. But I'm feeling more confident now, and I hope to do an emerald version of this soon.
