What are you most proud of? The pendant in this piece was my first stone setting, so I was a bit nervous. It was also a bit of an experiment using silver clay for the base which made it some what tricky because of having to compensate for the clay shrinking when its fired. Overall it turned out better than I'd hoped and I look forward to doing more pendants like this one. :)
