Gold post leaf and lapis lazuli drop earring design rendering in CAD by Joana Miranda
An unusual gold and aquamarine ring celebrates the engagement of an unconventional couple.
I did the rendering above for a client a few years back. I then hand carved the wax and sent it out to be cast in 18K yellow gold. Flush-setting the diamond “eye” and prong-setting the emeralds was a challenge for me at the time since I had never prong set stones before. I was happy with the finished result, although my picture-taking skills at that time were a little less sophisticated…
The money I earned with this pendant became – no pun intended – the seed money for starting my business Joana Miranda Studio.
