Took me 14 hours to make this but I am mostly happy and will definitely wear this and keep it forever!  Cab is Mexican Royal Velvet Obsidian cut by me.  Very simple setting, not perfect but......  I DID IT AND AM PROUD!!!!!! yippie

Bezel is fine silver and back is sterling.

Very nice pendant, I really like how you attached the jump ring by adding a little extra silver backing to drill a hole.  yes

   I love the stone in that setting and the setting itself. I can't wait to get my workroom setup going so I can try my hand at this myself.

nice design and the bezel looks good and even.  It's a buzz when something new works out.

your stone finish is masterfull as usual and you have an eye for form and function; design, that will be an asset in your setting work too.
