Cicadas and Wild Roses

AKA waiting for spring to come!  Ocean jasper and an antique bakelite cicada from 1920's France - here I am playing with combinations and asymmetry.  I love asymmetry, but asymmetrical pieces are hard to design.  This one took a lot of thought.  I'm still wondering if the clasp needs to be a bit bolder….yes I think it does!
Below is a custom piece just finished today.  The elements were chosen by my customer.  I love the prudent man agate! It's colors are somewhere between a canyon sunset and a pond full of algae.  Earthy.  Beautiful.
