Emerald Pendant

It was about time I made a piece of jewellery for my good friend Lou. She likes green, and I like precision handiwork, so I thought this pendant would make a nice birthday present. It features a 6x4mm oval emerald tension set in the central cutout, and two 1.5mm diamonds bead set at the top and bottom.

Blue Paua Cufflinks

My second stone setting project (well, shell I suppose) was a pair of silver cufflinks bezel set with Blue Paua shell from New Zealand. It's also known as Blue Abalone.

Opal Ring

This was my first attempt at a stone setting project. I got it wrong repeatedly, but unfortunately didn't take enough photos, instead making it look like I knew what I was doing!
