Recently I have started playing with stone settings ~ its been a learning experiance to say the least but I think I am gradually getting it! I started with tiny 5mm stones and settings ~ not sure if starting small was the way to go but I enjoyed the process.

I love the effect of these little cabs with my oxidised silver but of course I always want to take it a little bit further. I did buy some bigger cabs and bezel cups and played around with some Christmas pressies for family ~ this ring was a gift to my sister ~ it looked stunning on to!!

Finally I made this gorgeous heart pendant with a beautiful Moonstone cab ~ this one is very organic looking and the flash is delicious ~ just perfect for Valentines day without being too girly or slushy ~ of which I am neither ;)
Today though I actually set (on my own) a piece of sea glass ~ woohoo ~ can you tell I am so excited ~ its in the tumbler so I can't show you just yet as its will need oxidising ~ here's hoping she turns out ok though as I really enjoyed the process.
