Here is one that I think is ready for my shop. It is a gorgeous Damsonite or otherwise known as Burro Creek agate.
I love this piece, but let me tell you, I really sweated the load getting those beads on right. Afterwards I thought, "Why didn't I use a centerpunch to mark the spots for the beads?" Duh, live and learn. The cutout back, or, pierced work as it is called, came out brilliantly. I really fretted over that, too. This was a very good project and I learned a lot and got lucky a lot. :)
Here is one that I have listed. It's a wonderful dendritic Montana agate.
This one has pierce work on the back, too. The picture won't upload for some reason. Anyway, this piece is a play on the shape. The front and back have opposing pears, but if you look through the stone you can see another pear, which is oriented the way the stone is. Well, I thought it was clever, anyway. :) I love this piece, it was fun to do and didn't trouble me much.
Did you notice that I have a stamp for .925? Now all I have to do is remember to put it on before I put the bezel wire on.
Just in case anyone is thinking that I quit wire wrapping here are a few recent projects.
