Jewels, Jewels, Jewels!

So often when I start a piece of work, I have a sketch of my idea and I have thought about execution even before I begin the initial saw-blade cut or hammer mark. But as a I begin the process of the design the metal usually has its own intentions. I never create a piece exactly like the original sketch because as it evolves it becomes something of its own and helps direct me to the final design.
