Maria's Ammolite Sterling Silver Commission Pendant

I am so excited about our latest creation!  It is TRULY a OOAK (One Of A Kind) piece!

Maria of GossamerScapes had purchased these two GORGEOUS Ammolite cabochons from
Julez Jewelz some time ago.  Seeing as how Maria is an amazingly talented wire wrapper, her original intent was to wire wrap them.  Time goes on and the design continues to tumble around inside her mind...then one evening she and I were chatting on Facebook.  She had been intrigued by our latest silversmithed pieces and asked if I could set them in silver for her!  I was totally honored at her proposal and jumped right on her offer!

The video below is a slide show and video presentation of the entire progression to completion of this piece; from her original design sketch to the fully functional hinged and swiveling bale mechanism in action!

I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed creating!
