Rancho Gordo Beans

Bench
For some time, I have been pondering expanding my jewelry skills into the world of food and wine. The wine part was easy, having made and and exhibited pieces based on Champagne tins. Then it hit me; walking into my pantry, I spied my voluminous collection of Rancho Gordo beans. Steve Sando, a good friend of mine, is the purveyor of these jewel-like legumes and the inspiration of setting a stunning bean as one would set a precious gem, was too good to pass up…

I started with a Scarlet Runner as a ring and a few Christmas Limas to be set in earrings. The earrings are proving to be more a challenge in the setting but at least I finished a ring!

    You are such a whiz!
    I totally love that ring, what ever happened to the teabag project?

    Selling these on etsy could be very fortunate…
