A pendant I just finished. With red Med. coral & lapis. The "other" blue stone LOL Not my usual Turquoise. The branch of coral of course dictated the shape over all.

Wow

Thanks for posting that. I am thinking of doing a set of ox blood coral and lapis but wasn't sure about the color contrast. I now know that it will work yes

How is the coral mounted?

Ten thumps up on that piece yes yes yes

Bless

How is the coral mounted?
 The top is slipped into the hollow piece of silver. The two wrap arrounds are 1/2 round #12. They were bent in "U" shape & soldered. Then the "prongs" were bent over the branch. Very carefully LOL So as not to snap the coral. Thanks all I love using the natural form of the coral branch to dictate the over all design/shape.

Great work Mike.

You give yourself problems however, how are you going to top that?

In my case I always know the next one will be better!
