When I sat down at the jewelry bench the other day, with a dog under my feet, I came up with this. my wife doesn't like the beads. too late it is done and one less for her to take. I posted pics of the back and the bail in the making for anyone interested

I like the beads, it adds some depth to it.  My wife just likes simple jewelry too with little adornment but bezel and bail only can get old for the person making the jewelry.  I think it is better off with in my opinion.

I think it's a great piece and I agree- the beads add something to it.

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!

Thanks for showing the back as well. It is helping me to work out different ways of attaching the bails.
Love the shape that having the beads on the front gives you on the back.
Thanks again
