Work In Progress

I am currently working on setting a beautiful dark faceted stone with a pointed back. Below are some pictures of the stone, work in progress and the setting that I hand cut and shaped out of silver wire to act as a claw and hold the stone in place. This wasn't an easy process but this type of setting really allows the light to hit each cut of the stone, creating a stunning sparkle. Initially I was thinking towards mounting it onto a ring base, but as it is quite a large stone (approx 1cm x 1cxm) I'm now leaning towards mounting it onto a piece of silver wire to create an attractive pendant.
