    Thanks everyone. Your comments are so kind. The cab was cut by a master stone cutter and his work is breathtaking.

    Welcome to the “club”! This is beautiful! We all knew you could do it :) , and if I may, for your first try it is absolutely … perfect! And the rest of the necklace is WOW as well. Congratulations, Del. Please keep delighting us with your new works.

    Thanks so much, Nata. It is not so intimidating. Maybe I will try a bigger piece. I really do like the way the cabs look with the beads. I always wanted to learn how to set them in silver, but the beads are so pretty.

    Beads do come in silver colors as well :) Besides, beads give you some many more choices. Let yourself be carried away by your imagination!

    And beads won’t burn the house down! Which is what I would probably do with the torch. Never thought to use the silver. Good idea!
