Oldies but Goodies - Oval

I don't have a story for you today, but a question. What is your favorite shape in jewelry? Do you prefer it rounded or rather with angles and points?
When I looked through my cab stash and thought about what appealed to me over the years, I found that I have always been very drawn to oval cabs. I'm not sure if that has to do with my jewelry making beginnings when an oval cab seemed to be the best choice for wire crochet bezels or if this is in fact my favorite shape. I'll let you know if I ever find out ;-)
Oval was the topic for the new Jewelry Artisans Community Oldies but Goodies Challenge, so here's this week's collage for you. Maybe there's a topic you'd like to see sometime? Let me know!

  1. There is something about ovals that are a pleasing shape; not as stark as a rectangle and softer than a circle. Maybe that's what draws you to them, Cat.

    Lovely collage; thank you for the inclusion!

    1. That makes sense. And maybe that is why I like the marquise shape so much, not just oval, but elegantly so :-D

      Thank you in everyone's name and you are welcome!

  2. I love oval jewelry. You made a beautiful collage Cat. Thank you for adding my items!

    1. Thank you, Irith, for showing us such beautiful pieces! :-D
