    Well done Wallace!

    On a wider issue, is it OK for members not associated with Cooksongold to organise their own competitions? Maybe I should put this to you in a private message, but I have an...

    Your pictures are fine Dennis. I was just looking at your recent thread in Show & Tell (lovely, by the way!) and they are very sharp images. The thumbnails are small, of course, but when you click on...

    Wow. Really, really stunning. I'm amazed at your craftsmanship, honestly. I've got to gather my thoughts for a while, but one question jumps out at me – how did you keep the enamel powder in a hole...

    That's lovely, and clever too. The enamelling is exactly what I was thinking of, but not to as great an extent as you've done it, but what you've done works really really well. Very impressed by...

    Blimey! That is beautiful work. I love that they're scenes too, not just pieces. I'd love to see bigger pictures, particularly of the animals, and especially of the butterfly, and a really good...

    You're right Lydia, it means different things to different people at different times.

    When I started collecting 'natural' meant untreated in any way. It still does most of the time (depending on...

    There certainly seems to be a lot of options. What I think I'll do is make something, show you all and ask for help when you can see specifically what the problems may be – if any. But thanks so much...

    Thanks both, there's quite a lot to think about there.

    I had no idea nickel had a directive! I'll check that out, thanks Jill.

    I was thinking more of polishing the finished product once...

    I have my microscope set up on my desk all the time, so I've just taken a few shots of some excessively filled Rubies.

    As you can see, all three stones have obvious bubbles in them. They are hard...

    Sorry, I missed this earlier today.

    In a word, yes. Many stones have fissures and cracks, particularly those at the fracture end of a crystal, or those that have been moved over time by geology,...

    Hello Dennis, thanks as always.

    While I'm working on some quite difficult 3D shapes for my beetle, I've been thinking of something much simpler and flat. I absolutely love the moth pendant by...

    While I'm scoffing my sandwiches, a couple questions, if I may?

    How do you polish metals? I'm guessing it's more complicated than a spot of Brasso on a rag? I'm thinking copper, brass and...

    No problem and no offence. It's good to be cautious.

    Hello, do you mind if I ask what your name is? It's a bit odd talking to someone's business name.

    I did a quick Google search for you, just in case the farm I bought them from had closed down. But...

    Thanks Jill and Wallace! They are lovely. Both the Sapphires are translucent stones, but the Ruby is opaque, so the Sapphires win for me.

    Jill, these are on my website/bog whatsit. On there I'm...

    Hello Pearlescence, good question and you're right to ask.

    I know because I bought them in Tennessee. As you probably know (judging from the links in your signature!) round pearls are where the...

    Star Sapphires and Ruby

    The sun was out and I was sorting my stones so thought I would take advantage of the situation.

    The yellow and pink stones are Star Sapphire cabs, and the red one is a Ruby. I wish I'd bought more...
