#Rhodonite is an attractive #mineral that is often carved and used in jewellery. It is named after the Greek word for rose, rhodon. Its rose-pink colour is distinctive and can only be confused with #rhodochrosite While rhodonite does not react to acids and is usually associated with black #manganeseminerals and #pyrite. Rhodonite soothes the nervous system. This gemstone vibrates with love. Just holding this gemstone promotes relaxation and brings a sense of well-being. This is a balance gemstone and is used to clear the psychic centres. Here pictured is two different rhodonite stones to show how varied this stone is! 1st - RHODONITE 28X20 FREEFORM

When the last thing you want is to be banal. But all the words have already been said, sung, snored, and even silenced. All the most beautiful flowers have already been donated, and all the magnificent diamonds have been repeated.
You want to be unique in your manifestations, and then you get into the hands a flower that was not yet on this Earth. You have in front of your eyes a unique 18 k palladium gold and a diamond of a special form of "marquis".
This facet appeared in the reign of Louis XV. The legend says that the creation of such an unusual form of jewelly was inspired by the French King. He was so fascinated by his favorite Marquis de Pompadour that he wanted to give her a diamond that would convey the dazzling beauty of her beautiful smile.
Perhaps it is this kind of flower that the king's favorite dreamed of and perhaps may be it is her your favorite.
May stars be born of your love, and their radiance will be an eternal flash in the memory of the universe. The Star Flower diamond ring is another bright reason for her sunny smile. ➡️ To order please write to us or pop into our web store www.kochut.org.uk entering jewellery stock code 4236 in the web page search line.

✨A post on solder granulation I've put together for @metalsmithsociety because sharing is caring... and how lovely to have so many messages about this awesome technique that I love🙌
Happy Indie Friday... and also fizz friday 😂🥂xxx
"I love granulation detailing, I have used both fused and soldered techniques in my making. Fused granulation is wonderful however I find it can be restrictive for my designs and the cost of the higher carat gold or argentum that needs to be used in order to fuse well are the reasons I tend to use soldered granulation.
With soldering granulation I can build up layers of granules, and use both 9ct gold and sterling silver. In order to stop those tiny balls flying everywhere I apply a few at a time using a tiny amount of solder paste onto each of the granules and place them onto the frame. Apply a gentle heat over the piece and watch for the paste to dry out, this will then hold the granules in place until the solder flows, then slowly increase the heat watching for the solder to flow, quench, pickle, dry, then add a few more. The key is gentle heat and really watching for the solder to flow, over heating can cause the granules to melt. I solder all my pieces on charcoal which is an excellent soldering surface as it reflects the heat back onto the metal being soldered for quicker heating as well as creating a reducing atmosphere which helps reduce fire stain. Here's a pair of my sterling silver and 9ct gold huggie hoops on the bench being created. 🎇✨Sophie xx"
