We all know how hard it is to find red gemstones. I hit the jackpot at the gem show and was able to find some ruby beads. They are faceted roundels about 10mm wide. Then of course I needed a stylish pendant to hang on those beads didn't I?
Enter the bezel set oval ruby stone. I laid the bezel over 2 layers of sterling and was able to reticulate the top layer as I sweat soldered it on. It turned out lovely.
Matching earrings? Yes of course- included.
Earring length is 1 1/2" from hand made wires.
Pendant measures 1 3/4" by 1"
Ruby strand measures 18"
