Hi!

 Got a few things made for christmas giving ... 2 rings with dragons breath cabochons for my nieces.

 Also a pendent that uses a drilled amethyst crystal and agate cab and a ring with a Herkimer quartz crystal for my sis.

 Hope you all have a fun holiday season HO HO HO!

Nice job. Natural crystals seem to be popular now, especially Amethyst.

The pendant looks to have been challenging to make. Does the amethyst move freely on the ring ?

Looks really cool !! dancer5

Awesome! The amethyst one is especially creative. I never would have thought of setting a crystal that way.

I am really curious as to how that herkimer was set. Is it held in by pressure or is there a bezel? It's hard to tell in the pic.

Beautiful and unusual, all.
Could you please say more about "dragons' breath". I am not familiar with it.

Thanks all!

 The amethyst does swing on the 1/2 round circle ... I should have polished the drill hole because it scratches the silver ... next time.

 The Herkimer crystal has 4 prongs made of 1/2 round holding it and kind of protecting the crystal (yes it's hard to make out in the photo).

 Dragons Breath cabs are interesting they have tiny triangle facets along the base of the cabs that cause them to flash a bit like opal.
 I bought them from a seller at etsy.
