Ok - sorry - no cowboys here - but I can't help think of that song when I talk about rhinestones - LOL! A friend asked me to make some earrings to go with a rhinestone necklace she bought. I had never done anything with rhinestones so, of course, I had to dive into it with both feet! I now have a LOT of rhinestones and settings so I'll be doing more with rhinestones. She need hers done in brass so that's what I'll be using for all my new designs. Here is the final creation
It involved 22 soldered components, oxidized the whole thing, set all the stones and - voila - earrings!
