This one is small, way smaller than what I'm used to.
We'll call it dainty.
I wanted the silver to look like it was blooming and growing up from the center stones and this was my first time setting a faceted stone.
The design was hand-drawn (you'll excuse the imperfections) and hand-cut (practice makes perfect).
It was a bit of a challenge knowing how high to cut the bezel to show off the facets.
I was also stumped by the back of a stone that didn't lay flat.
My solution was to make a little cradle to sit the stone in while I burnished the bezel.
The pendant itself only measures just under an 1 1/2", strung on dainty oxidized silver chain.
A mix between Art Nouveau/Art Deco and Victoriana, it's definitely so far my favorite.
More silver coming soon...
