Silversheen obsidian

Late last year I snagged a couple of pieces of this carved silversheen obsidian. I thought it would be good to practice my prong-setting again, as a way to keep this piece lightweight and easy to wear. I am really happy with how it turned out.

The back isn’t perfect, but it is pretty clean. And I am definitely working much faster than I was a year ago. I only had to re-attach one prong, once.

I know I always struggle to understand the relative size of items when I’m buying online. So here is what the piece looks like when I’m not zoomed in:

My shop will be live by the end of March, and this pendant will be available there when it opens.
