Sorry Murph I read the wrong reference when I posted mt response............D'Oh...............

I've got a suggestion for the next one:  Put the joining seam for the picket fence gallery bezel at the bottom of the of the pendant.  This way the soldering won't be as noticeable as most people will be looking down onto the pendant when worn................
