What are you most proud of? I'm still obsessed with Mary Tucker's lockets :). This one is constructed a bit differently from the first two. I've made a few mistakes but nevertheless want to share it. You can find a free tutorial for the locket in the learning center of Mary's wiredelements website (http://wiredelements.com/learning-center/free-tutorials/ - and please have a look at her gorgeous work!). Again I've used a Rose of Sharon to attach the rivoli in the center, this time a version with coils on the outside ;-) (the design Perri teaches in her tutorial: http://www.etsy.com/listing/112055690/rose-of-sharon-coiled-faceted-birthstone).
