Man O' War Prehnite Pendant

Hey everybody!
I listed this pendant on etsy today and thought I would show some pics of the process.
Enjoy...

Rutile Green Prehnite Cab. Ready for the settin.


And the bezel soldered and ready to go.


So I decided to mess with some wire on this piece. I used 3 different guages, shaped them and then hammered them for some texture.


Just lining them up and changing the order to see what looks best.


Final layout before soldering.


And now they are soldered!


Shaped and trimmed up all nicey nice.


One more solder step to go.


Soldered, oxidized and ready to put a finish on it. Then set the stone!


All done :)
