completed and ready to go!

Friday - "Precious Gift" with garnets, "Perfect" with simulated opals, "Sun Circle" with amber, "Peace" with simulated blue zircon, and "Inner Vision 8" with ceramic faces and glass beads. It took me a little longer than Wednesday to get finished but they are ready to go now!

earrings assembly

Right now I'm working on 5 pairs of earrings - in a batch. It's easier to get all the bezels made at the same time, all the silver cut out and filed at the same time and do each stage's work as if I'm my own little assembly line. Where I'm at today:
Hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday I will have everything soldered together and perhaps even the stones set and everything polished...

I've been a little lax with posting progress here so I thought I'd do an update on how that little black onyx ring turned out with the special stone I made to fit it. I ended up putting a small sterling back-plate inside the bezel to stabilize the stone and make everything more secure. I was very pleased with how it all turned out and my customer was too!
