Fiddly.

I finished my fiddliest project to date today, a pair of Victorian inspired silver earrings with lovely big blue spinel stones for one of my aunties.  Normally when I make these, I use 7x5mm or 8x6mm cabochons, but these spinels are a whopping 11x9mm and faceted to boot!  So rather than make a bezel from sheet silver soldered to the central oval of the earring, I cut it out entirely and made a mount from wire.  Quite tricky, but worth the effort, I think.  🙂
