    Making Small Treasure / Jewelry Boxes by C. J. Roy, woodworker

    Making Small Treasure / Jewelry Boxes by C. J. Roy, woodworker
    Posted on
    I liked the slanted sides, the small pedestal feet, and the domed top that add an elegance to the box. Also the box was joined with box joints, kind of unusual in a small box. I’ve now made about a couple dozen of them and am still pleased that people seem to be caught by them as I was. Making small items that will be hand held is tricky. The fit and finish, the “feel” if you will, has to be near perfect or the thing is just firewood. A piece of furniture that sits across a room can have several small imperfections that will remain mostly unnoticed. A small box the comes to the hand is not so…any imperfection will be readily evident and unacceptable. These small boxes have quite a bit of hand fitting to ensure a wobble free top that indexes with the end ears, critical angles and curves that require extra care. And the box joint fingers must fit perfectly.

    The Importance of Pearl Knotting and How to Store Pearl Strand Necklace
    Posted on 1 comment

    Knotting technique can prevent from losing all your pearls to fly everywhere in case your pearl string breaks. It also gives nice flexibility when handling in hands and wearing. It is recommended not to hang knotted pearls strands by hanging them from a hook, but to lay them flat and occasionally wipe pearls gently with a cloth dipped in a mild, soapy water.

     

    Baroque Tahitian Pearl Heart Collection for Valentine's Day

    Baroque Tahitian Pearl Heart Collection for Valentine's Day
    Posted on

    Aloha from Volcano Studios. In Hawaiian language Aloha means Love, and today I will be talking about my newest Double Heart Collection made with the finest Baroque style Tahitian pearls right in time for the Valentine’s Day. Love and romance are in the air.

    The earrings and the pendant are all featuring beautiful and fun gold embellishments. Because there are no twins in the Baroque family, the gold elements on each are unique to highlight the beauty of each pearl.

    Fun fact about Baroque pearls: they are all 100% natural and absolutely unique. In the array of available colors there are any combinations of silver to black or even copper. For my Double Heart Collection I chose the warm transition of silver, light to very dark, overlaid with the beautiful peacock sheen.

    The exceptional luster and light, as well as darling shapes and soothing curves. Perfect pearls, perfect gift, a tribute to love and eternal source of life that takes its ancient beginning in the depth of the Pacific Ocean. Celebrate the Valentine’s Day with the gift that speaks love, the wonderful and ever exciting pearl!
