I finally finished making this year's Christmas gifts for some of my cousins. The wire-wrapped pendants didn't take that long, but the other pendant took far longer than it should have.



Sterling silver wire-wrapped hand-polished Petosky stone.

Sterling silver wire-wrapped pendant. Not sure what the stone is except that it is one of the stones my grandfather found, cut, and polished.




Sterling silver and Carnelian pendant. This pendant took me waaaaaaay too long to make. I was stuck on getting to last two prongs to solder, and somehow there was always a gap preventing them from doing so. I ended up having to make an entirely new setting with all four prongs already soldered to the base, saw off the old setting and solder in the new one. I had the strong urge to shout "Q'pla" (Klingonese meaning "success" or "victory," and yes I know I'm a geek Smile ) when it was finished.
