Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

My First Student - Her Finished Ring

Its pretty great when a student makes a piece of jewelry that you'd like to keep for yourself!

Here is Stephanie finishing up her ring...she is setting the stone.  My compliments to her for doing such an awesome job! 

She choose a beautiful turquoise stone that was hand-cut by one of the silver instructors from William Holland School of Lapidary Arts.  If you have the desire to learn and you can get to Georgia, this is a wonderful school...I like to call it Art Camp for Adults!  It is non-profit and the instructors volunteer their time so it is so affordable!  http://www.lapidaryschool.org/

Her ring turned out beautifully!  Don't you think so?  And it fits--that's always a bonus!

If her friends don't believe she made it, you can see why!

I guess I should start worrying about the competition she will give me!
