Here is something I posted regarding azures on January 21, 2014 (I searched for it, my memory is nowhere near that good any more!)
I've decided that their additional ornamentation is a worthwhile
endeavor for a number of pieces.
Erich, your post reminded me of an article on azures by Michael
Bondanza that had amazing azure designs. The instructor at a college
where I was taking classes wrote to him and he sent her the sample
piece, so I saw the actual work. It was exquisite. The article is on
Ganoksin, but I don't seem to be able to find the pictures anywhere.
the article can be found with this link:

This link no longer works, should be an article by Michael Bondanza. Perhaps the proper link can be found by a member:
