Here's my New Necklace!
(front and back)

I'm going to exercise my artistic freedom and call it a choker at 14". I used two Basil leaves and a Opalescent Topaz. Umm Umm. Pretty! It turned out to be allot more girlie than I had envisioned. I used another bezel setting for the topaz! I'm starting to get the hang of it... this particular topaz had been set aside for a prong setting but I did not feel up to conquering that! I'll save it for another day.
And as always, the back is detailed too. One of my pet peeves I guess is when a piece of jewelry has great detail, then you turn it around and the detail turns to mush. Now, I know that most people wont even set eyes on the back of your jewelry, but for my own piece of mind. I like to know that my necklace that I am wearing is detailed all around. Like a real leaf. Or, like a real object. It makes it more real, gives it more weight.

Many more chokers to come...

My new "Opal Oregano" ring.

Here is my new ring!!!

Thats a pretty white opal, my first bezel setting, and two oregano leaves on either side. This one is tiny- a size four for my pinkie finger. I love it!
