Here are some details about my project:
Category Jewelry
Type Accessory
Style Casual on

Who is this project for? Women on

What materials did you use? 13mmx18mm Kingman Turquoise and Sterling Silver on

What are you most proud of? Getting the spacing of the Sterling Silver balls lined up okay. It turned out pretty nice. on

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. on

Quite inspiring! I appreciate the extra tips in the advice notes, too.
