What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't give up just because jump rings alone don't work :))

I think it is lovely, Bobbi! There is loads of potential with those settings having holes running through them. ;)

Thank you MsBead!! I'm so addicted to the sew ons, it doesn't take much to get me to experiment with them. I think I've done 4 styles of rings, 2 pendants, a couple bracelet and earring designs, and now the necklace. When this one is finished, i want to try different shapes with this. I have a Tanzanite trillion shape I think would be wicked. :))

Hmmmm - I could have sworn your avvy said MsBead when I replied - it's April right? :) hmmmm - okay who hid my good glasses?

personally I like your version better. It has more, I'm not sure... personality, maybe? It's sparkly, of course, so I love it...but it's like it's got a bit of sass to it. It's not just some beads strung between two bits of chain (and believe me, I do plenty of that kind of jewelry - it has its place), it's got real character!. Love it. When you finish be sure to get some good detail photos - especially the back. I'd love to see how you handled those 4 holes, cause they LOOK great. :-)

Thank you, thank you Miss Cassie :)) The pic the customer sent, you can sorta see a setting, but I couldn't see it real well. I will definitely update the pics when it's finished!!

I've updated the pics to the final piece. I shortened and simplified the connection between the center stone and the drop. I also removed the little dangles just above the drop. There's even a pic of the back just for you Miss Cassie. :)) The picture with the tiny beads above the pear shape drop is the "before" - I think it looks better - let me know. :))
