Copper tone tan
« on: July 31, 2016, 10:08:53 PM »

When I was doing the final assembly of this piece all I could think of was 'copper tone tan'...and there are no tan lines! I made the chain, setting, cut the spiderman jasper cab, and tube set the CZ in the cab. The chain is 24 ga wire double viking weave drawn down to 5/32".


Keep calm and hammer on!

Very nice design! I love the thick chain- it balances the size and weight of the piece very well.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!

Nifty design.
Thanks, I've been having fun playing with the curb and prong setting...not to mention the stone cutting and chain making.

I can't wait to see that setting in silver around a piece of turquoise.
