A Silver Ring and a Plant List

June 10, 2010

I finished this ring yesterday.  Melting Ice – forged sterling silver, fine silver bezel, red gold, faceted aquamarine, hand-polished cabochon of Chinese “Imperial Blue” waterline agate.  The agate is a new material that has only been on the gem market for about six months, and this is the first stone that I’ve cut from it.  The bezel was hammer-textured with a small dapping punch.

Today I posted the revised version of the Empire Mountains Flora Checklist.  Most plants now have photo links!  The photo (with brief description) pops up in its own window, so the rest of the list remains in view and there’s no need to keep hitting the BACK button if you want to look at several pictures.  At the top of the list is a link to a new DISCUSSION page that includes a map, landscape photos, and a bit of background on the Empire Mountains.  I expect both pages to grow as I add more plants later this summer after the monsoons begin.
