95 carat – Rose and Skull

Ruby / Emerald

After deciding the heavier bracelet was a bit much (from a durability standpoint) explored how to make best use of small Columbian emeralds to create tyre-like stem pieces to balance the distance between thorns. Honestly, you’d not pick a flower with an overabundance of thorns. Clarity found in some of the finished emeralds gives depths one could be lost in. The thorns were carved from a skull base. -scl
