Sparkling clouds

It seems that I prefer to work very large or very small. This weekend I did a little bit of both. I just love the depth and sparkle of this small cloud-shaped moss kyanite. I don’t think the photos do the color justice – it’s a velvety, deep ocean blue.

I bought a few of these stones, so I’ll have an opportunity to set one of them again. It’s delicate and sweet, but it was hard to get the bezel to hug the curves in the stone. While I like how this turned out, I think next time I’ll set it with prongs, instead.
