but I like these diamonds ...

Now I'm not a big fan of diamonds but I am loving the "idea" of them:

this gorgeous enameled piece is from the book 500 Necklaces, which I was working on at my "day job". Sorry I forgot to write the artist name down before it went out the door ... whoever you are, my apologies. A kid I went to college with was featured in this book, made me feel instantly inferior. ugh.

So as I said, I love the "idea" of jewels - but the mining practice is just so nasty and don't get me started on the cost ... but these diamonds are affordable!

and the irony translates so well into jewelry form ...

the perfection of this laser cutting makes my numb thumb very angry - why are you torturing me?
