I’ve now hurt my back!
Maybe it’s due to too much sitting at the jewelry table.
Here’s an update.
The bezel is still a little off, (well o.k., a lot off), and I’m not sure I’ve got that much wiggle room to straighten it.
I’m going to try though as it will bother me the whole time if I don’t.
I’m thinking of compensating for the slant of the stone by shortening the left hand link at the top. Actually that piece of wire should have been longer and wrapped a little more around the top.
I’m alternating this piece with a new one.
I’ve just finished the bezel setting, but forgot to photograph it.
This is a nice little piece of Mexican turquoise, and that little black dot next to it is a watermelon tourmaline. All that’s left to make is the large leaf and the dangly bits.
I will leave you with the new addition to the family.
Don’t talk to me about it.
The boy brought it home from college, and however pretty its colouring, and however cute its little chirping sound is,
IT’S STILL A RODENT!
S named it Guinness. I call it The Beast.
Don’t look at it.
And finally, a photo of my bench when I left it last night.
Not too bad, (you can just see the setting for the turquoise in the lower left corner), but I won’t win any awards for most tidy worker.
Off to work on the bezel.
