Almost there!

It has been a while since I have completed any pieces. I have been focusing on getting down flush setting, which had been difficult as i have no one to compare my tools/techniques to. And while my flush setting seems to be running at a 40% sucess rate, my tube setting seems to be working much better. I fabricated a pendant out of wire (Fabrication itself being a skill i am working on!) and before I took the dive of setting the stone, I did a little test setting Hey, it worked! So I finally got the guts up to set my stone in my pendant and:

I know I should have put the chain on before setting, but I havent any chain and was hot to try and set my stone. But then there was the issue of my test setting...what do i do with that? Well, I figured pop it in a stone I've been polishing and see if that works.

Now I need to create a bezel and shank and I'll have a nice little ring.
