This morning I finished up this pendant I've titled "Amethyst Angel". This new way of doing settings is working well! Most wire sculptured work is completed by having a finished stone, and sculpting the wire around that stone. In this case, I pre-made the setting, leaving the top cross wires loose. Then I made my art cab to fit the setting! A little backwards, but it worked well. I never know how much wire I'll need to cut to use on a piece when the stone is already complete....so by cutting the wire and forming an acceptable setting first, and THEN forming the cab, I don't have to worry about that issue.
