Ruby and Copper by blackcurrantjewelry Ruby and Copper by blackcurrantjewelry
I was commissioned to set ruby in copper wire. I've never before set in wire such a small stone without hole. It wood by quite clumsy if I had to use round wire, but fortunately I made recently this flat wire. I flattened round wire with rolling mill and made it soft with torch. When it gets bent it hardens again.

Very, very lovely!  I'm not used to seeing pieces set in flattened wire, but it compliments the shape of the ruby wonderfully! Not to mention the copper and ruby colors are so beautiful together.

Your work is absolutely gorgeous!

I was wondering if I could use some of your designs for drawing practice, learning how to do more intricate designs. They'll just be for practice, and if I post any I will make sure to credit you. I just wanted your permission, if that's all right. If not, that's perfectly fine.
