Two days ago I posted a rather sumptuous gold, diamond and emerald earring rendering for my Design a Day (Day 344).  I was visiting my parents in NH and did the rendering in my parents’ atelier – a combined pottery and jewelry studio.  The following pictures give a glimpse into our activities that day:
