Marrying materials can be a tricky process, especially setting stones within stones. Here I combine a disc of purpleheart wood with lepidolite, a stone found in Zimbabwe and used traditionally for sculpture. Once the lepidolite is snuggly fitted into the wood, I sand it down to form one smooth pebble and then add the shweshwe detail in rose gold and fine silver. Lastly, I set the 15-point diamond and 1-carat tanzanite into the lepidolite very, very carefully for it is super soft and tends to crack.
