Here is another way to use crystals  Measures 49 X 39 X 6 mm. with flat back. The edges around the drusy part are polished.

Very pretty.  That would be an elegant centerpiece in a gold necklace.  Just lovely!   :thumbsup:

That's a wonderfully creative way to use good drusy rough.  All the carvings you've posted so far are top-rate IMO.  And with flat backs they're very useful in jewelry-making, as you've pointed out.  I recall hearing about problems with 3-D carvings some years back --they were lovely but without flat backs no one could figure out how to create jewelry to show them off.

I particularly like the druzy/matte/polished combination. It makes it much more interesting.
