Turquoise hand shaped stone.

Another basic baby girls first ring. Shaped the stone with sand paper & file. Perfect denim polish (again) and set it in this basic size five girls ring.

Asia is going to love it.

yep, did it in the kitchen sink with running water.
new 600 grit draped over the center of the double sink, water dripping on the paper.
then moved right to 4000 and then denim jean (pant leg polish on the way to the freezer to pop the stone off the wax.
short short dop stick.

Have heard of using denim for polishing laps. Just never while it is still being worn! Cool!!!
