Commission for Bob Gast
« on: November 06, 2016, 03:41:06 PM »

Bob wanted this gorgeous piece of Mtorolite put into a pendant for his wife for Christmas.
I've been busy beading multiple projects at once, but thought I would post my progress of this piece here for y'all to admire.

The main cabochon is Mtorolite cut by Bob.
The smaller cab is adventurine.
Other materials:  Japanese rocailles in size 11 and 15, palladium plated Japanese delicas in size 11, Czech Firepolished glass, Czech faceted crystal, Freshwater seed pearls.

Still have some work to do on this yet, it's a work in progress.

Thanks folks!  I got it backed and edged last night.  Just need to fringe it now which will take a bit of time.

I've been told I have the patience of a Saint.   :LOLOL:
Seriously though I do have a lot more patience than most.  It depends however on what I'm working on.  I've lost my patience with pieces before.
