Susan showed us something she called a 'flat, sculptured' piece and my sketch looks something like these:
|VanCleef and Arpels, of course!|
I love this one even more, from the Couture Collection in 2004, but inspired by the Mystery Set technique developed in the 1930s. This looks to me like the epitome of 'flat and sculptured'.
Which brings us to this technique she described but didn't name. Developed by Van Cleef and Arpels it produced invisible settings in a slightly different approach to 'pave'. By buffing the edges of the stones the 'cobblestone' look was enhanced - and to my mind completely magical.
