What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep an eye out for the perfect combination of stones and beads, they don't come along everyday :))

Thank you, thank you Cassie!!! i'm on the hunt for another pair of stones - am really kinda sorry I sold these.

Awesome. Really want to take a class in making something like this. Do you have one and how expensive is it?

Thank you very much LouA! I don't have a tutorial for these just yet, but I do have plans for one. I have a couple smaller projects to finish up and then I'll get right on these. :))

Bobbi, your work is beautiful!! I have some small faceted drops with no hole. I would love to use this design. I also am looking for a pattern of yours that shows how to make delicate prongs to hold faceted gems. Can you direct me to the correct pattern? I want something delicate looking. Thanks so much!
