Ten Bead Turquoise

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? Getting the spacing of the Sterling Silver balls lined up okay. It turned out pretty nice. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience when working with metal. I made the silver balls from melting pieces of 20 ga. wire, then sanded the bottoms flat, so they would somewhat stay in place. I put the base on a tripod, and solderd from underneath, to attach all the silver balls at once. Had the bezel already in place first. Made a "P" shaped bail from 20 ga. wire and attached that last.
