This is a pendant in progress for a commission. In this picture all the sawing and most of the soldering is done. I still need to sand the edges of all the ornament, add the engraving which will breathe life into the design, and solder on the gold settings. The finished piece will have a rose cut blue tanzanite pear as the main stone and a small round rose cut blue sapphire as an accent on the top center.
Here it is all set up to solder in the setting base from the back of the pendant.
